|No, this is not my friend. It's me!
I have a friend. She is wise and kind (and sometimes has a funny mean streak). She stepped in when I needed a home for my cats. She gave me the key to her house and her car so I could go and see them before my move. She will be visiting in May. Together with her son. And they will fly to Stavanger just in case I would have a new home. So they could bring the monsters along as well. Which they won't. Since I won't have a new home in time.
Not by much though. Because... (drumroll please)...
I got the house!!!
Yes, tonight I got a phone call. Apparently I stood out more than any of the other applicants and if I was still interested, she would like to offer me the house. I was whooping on the bus I can tell (I was at work!).
I have to give three months notice at my current address and won't be able to move into the house until May, so it will be one month double rent. But I can live with that.
Until then however, I will need to do a lot. Mainly a car. It might be situated next to a busstop, but there aren't that many buses coming past. Especially not at 5am in the morning! I will also need some furniture. I mainly have cupboards and wardrobes and some folding chairs. Oh, and my comfy chair of course. But I will need some more, like a kitchen table and possibly even some white goods.
For now though, I am just very excited.
