For just of a year, i have lived in a house with a good mate of mine, wardo. Wardo moved here from bakewell, and hopefully i helped his progression from a bakewell tart 😉 (sorry, pudding) to mansfieldian.. But there comes a time in any mans life when he has to move in with the missus. And that time was about a week ago for wardo 🙂
He has moved on with Laura, and they have a lovely house just down the road from mine, so not too far to go and play on the Wii 😉 So good luck to both of them, i wish them all the luck in the world 🙂
This brings me to my next point, and the fact that I too, am now living alone with my girlfriend gemma. I didnt think anything into it really at first, but then it kinda dawned on me that i am living in a house that, ok its not ours, but its rented and run by us, and we have a garden, and a settee, and, well, everything else that you get in a house.. and its all OURS!
Its not half ours, and half a house mates.. Its Alll Ours!
Not that their is anything wrong with having someone else stuff in the house, it just feels so wierd to me knowing that i can use, or eat, or move, or clean ANYTHING.. and i dont have to wonder if its mine or not!
It sounds so petty, but it was just a really strange revelation i had when i was looking for something to eat (haha) and i realised i could have anything in the cupboards or the fridge, and i wouldn’t get moaned at or feel guilty 😀 😆
Yeah, so anyway, wardo has moved out, and that left us with a large empty room upstairs. So i moved my desk in, and set up a little home office. We also moved my kicks in here, and all gem’s ted stuff. But it kinda felt like a storage room and couldnt really be used fby more than one person. We needed a settee, or a sofa bed or something.. Neither of us had any cash at the mo, pay day seemed soooo far away. Then i remebered about my Freecycle email account, and the hundreds of emails i get about stuff people dont want no more.
I searched through the emails i had and found one entry regarding a sofa bed. I emailed the chap and he replied that the sooa bed was still in his back room, and was still free to a good home. A few more emails bounced back and forth discussing the best time to go up, and after i had seen pics and decided it looked ok, we arranged for me to go up after gem picked me up from work.
I called round, and a pleasant chap answered the door and we shook hands. And we all loaded it into the car and we parted after another handshake. That’s one cheap ass sofa bed!
So there is is! Its a beaut, and we even got the funky cushions too. Im always dubious about free stuff, but this thing is great and the bloke was really nice. Makes you realise there are some decent folk out there afterall.
Gem’s free aol lappy came too, its awesome. I want a new one now 🙁 Oh, and i noticed something else on freecycle too, but that is staying under wraps and is a little thing for my caddy. Hehe 🙂
It seems as of late, that many things in my life have moved forward all at the same time. Its weird, one minute you feel worried and uncertain, then a shit load of things happen and completly change your outlook on life and your future.
We are going to see the puppies tomorrow hopefully, i cant wait to see our little baby im very excited! 🙂 Sarah has been keeping us updated with pics, but its not the same as seeing them ni real life and hearing them make little noises. I really cant wait to get her home, and start the next chapter in our lives.
Peace and love mother funksters.
