The Weekend Blog | Karma
21st February 2016
Do you believe in karma? I do.
And I’ve got an awesome story involving a big old dose of karma.
Our flat went up on Zoopla at the beginning of the week and so my letting agency started arranging viewings with me. One person viewed it on Wednesday and decided they wanted it. They didn’t seem bothered when I mentioned that it was over looked by the student accommodation, and when I tried to show them around the flat they said they already knew the layout. At first I thought it was a bit odd but then I thought no more of it.
Until Friday, when I discovered something. I discovered that the person who viewed our flat works for the building management of the apartment block. I believe he is going to be the new manager of the site.
What does this mean? Well, it means that the manager of the building will be living next to my problematic next door neighbour. The one who plays music in the early hours of the morning. The one who threatened us. The one who set my anxiety off.
So, when the manager is woken in the earlier hours of the morning, goes to ask the neighbour to keep the noise down, and is told not to come f***ing knocking again (like he did to us), the neighbour is going to poop his pants when he realises he’s living next to the manager.
That, my friends, is karma.
Anyway, there is just one week to go until the big move.
Yesterday Tyrone and I went on an adventure (we’ve been having a lot recently) to a retail park near the airport as we needed to look at sofas. I’m happy to order my washing machine, fridge freezer and even bed online, but I would never order a sofa without seeing it in person. You’ve got to test these things! Same with mattresses.
We’ve seen one we like but we don’t want to order it until we’ve moved into the house and we know if is possible to bring a sofa of that size into the house.
Regardless of not buying a sofa, we had a pretty good day out and the made the most of it by calling in at Pizza Hut for lunch.
When we got pack we made a serious start on packing, and we didn’t stop until midnight. I’m slightly worried though as I look around the flat and realise that there is still so much to do. We own more stuff that we initially thought and packing takes much longer that I assumed.
It’s a bit stressful.
There won’t be a Weekend Blog next week for obvious reasons. My internet should be up and running at the house on the Wednesday after we move in, so hopefully I won’t lose my mind in those few internet free days. In fact, the detox will do me good.
See you on the other side (of the river)!
P.S. That One Line A Day journal is the best! I’ll probably write a post on it in the future.
