I've bought a tiny cheap iron and ironed all the shirt-shirts I own - enough to last a working week, at least - and emptied the bins, put on two loads of washing and tidied the edges of a bit of wallpaper in the hall that's been annoying me. I can't hoover because Ben's still asleep, but I feel better about the general state of the house; I'll feel better still when everything's been properly sorted out with the last of Ben's stuff's bringing over next week. It'll all start shaking down properly then. The kitchen's already had a re-arrange so Ben's got more cupboards in the actual kitchen, rather than just the big one in the utility room and a couple of drawers. I didn't realise he didn't have more than a couple of plates and bowls of his own - literally a couple of plates and two- no, three bowls. That's it. I'm glad I still had Mum's old crockery; he can have all of that and the cupboard it's been taking up as his own.
It's - comfortable, so far. It's not been awkward, even when Louise (his girlfriend) stayed a couple of nights. They sat playing Resident Evil, I sat with my laptop and occasionally googled clues for them - it's been nice.
Ben's moving in properly on Tuesday, when he's officially out of his old flat; we'll see how things go when I have to go to bed several hours before he does and get up early. I'm not looking forward to that part on many levels, but on the plus side tomorrow's a bank holiday and springing forward an hour isn't quite so bad. XD
The heating's been playing up; it's a 24-hour dial with pins labelled A to D that make sure it comes on twice a day like it or not, though you can move the pins around to change when it comes on and off, but the last couple of days it's not been coming on in the afternoons unless you manually poke the toggle that the pin is supposed to activate. (If that makes sense.) And then when you do toggle it, it won't turn off unless you poke it either! Time to poke the landlord too.
I'm trying not to worry about First Day At New Job on Tuesday, but - well, that's going to happen regardless.
My exciting life, everyone. XD
