Knew it was too good to last...


Just before I head off to Amsterdam, I get some really bad news.

Our landlord is selling the flat. Nothings fully confirmed, but it's looking like we'll need to be out of here for the end of September (just when I go on holiday...yay?).

So my gutting to clear space now becomes SERIOUS gutting cause I may have to move on my lonesome. And a quick glance at the newspapers and gumtree suggest that in the 2 years I've been in this steal of a flat, I've been priced out of the market. I have NO idea how I'm going to find a place within walking distance to work that isn't in the middle of break-in city. Buses are way too expensive, I'm not learning to drive anything on the grounds that the insurance/petrol will do me in...could use a bike but in winter that'll suck...

Guess I shouldn't complain too much though. 3 months is a generous amount of time to give us, and we'll probably try looking for a place for all 3 of us so might actually get something decent.

(sighs) Lets just not think about it until AFTER my holiday, and then I can start freaking out.

Enjoy Amsterdam and try not to worry about it just now - with it being summer lots of students will be moving out so hopefully you'll be able to find a share place and keep your current flatmates!

Ah poop, I just saw this!

Good luck with the search - I hope you find somewhere that is worthy of you as a tenant.
