I started the week after an extended weekend, from friday to monday. I usually work 4 days a week so I can play a bit with the free day. It’s not so bad but I still have to do my 40 hours a week, which means 10-hour days. Eh, nothing comes free.
And as I was saying in a previous post, winter arrived: snow, wet snow, cold rain, ice, etc. And before this, on friday, we had really strong winds. So strong that it blew our sunblind/umbrella thingy off the balcony :( I dont have a picture with mine but it looked something like this:
It was not small at all and the legs were kinda heavy. After a powerful gust of wind I heard a lound bang and when I looked out of the window, the sunblind was gone. I got out and I saw it stuck in the garden of the next house. I got it back but the legs are now bent, some pieces are broken and so on. Well, not much I can do now. It’s my fault I guess, I should’ve anchored it somehow. We could not have taken it with us anyway, it’s too big to fit anywhere in the new house. But I guess we could’ve tried to sell it to the new tennants who will come here.
We also went to the house to do some more measurements. We realized that we will have problems with moving the furniture. The doorways are too narrow, so are the interior stairways. Most of the things we can dismantle but the couch we have in the living is one piece and it’s not fitting at all. Freya is trying to find a couch which we can get upstairs and look decent at the same time, not an easy job as it turns out. She must know by now all furniture selling websites and she still didn’t find anything decent.
Oh, and the idiot who is selling the house is still making us problems. On the 28 november (on a friday) the house transfer is supposed to take place, where we get the keys. Our bank should have the money in his account by then but the dude (according to the lady at the agency) will only check his account friday morning and then he leaves in a 3-week vacation! Which sucks because we can’t afford to wait 3 weeks if the the money get to his bank one day later. And we can’t meet with him on friday anway, since I only get back home friday evening. We have an appointment on saturday with the lady from the agency, we’ll see how it goes.
In other news, I started playing Fallout 3, very nice game ;-) But Freya is right, I should take it easier with playing, there are other things to be done too. But from time to time, it works. And at the end, something funny:
