Sorry, but this is going to be a bit of a rant blog!
We’re looking for houses to rent next year, and we had a bit of a delay in starting looking because one of the girls was messing us around with who she wanted to live with, and it was causing problems because it meant we had too big a group. The group would have to be split, but doing so was causing even more problems, and it was all a bit of a nightmare! Well, said girl has now decided that she doesn’t like her course and is leaving uni! She didn’t think to tell us that she was thinking of this before did she?! So now we’ve got a group of four, which is a good size.
Uni gives us a list of student houses to rent in the area, so we have to go through and choose ones to look at, arrange a viewing and sort the rest ourselves. We fell in love with a couple of villages quite close to uni and both had several student houses in each. We made a list of the ones with 4 bedrooms, and parking as these are necessary to us, and phoned them all up. Well, our favourite ones have been let already, and some people didn’t pick up, so I’ve left voicemails but I’m not holding out much hope to be honest. So that rules out the villages. Now we’re left looking in Newport, which is where most of the student houses are. Newport is fine but we’d set our hearts on these villages! We’re going to look around one this afternoon, so we’ll see what it’s like.
I’m fed up of living here. It’s great being on campus and being so close to lectures and the library and everyone, but some of the people in my flat are testing to live with. I went into the kitchen this morning to find loads of pots and pans across the surfaces, the sink piled high with washing up and a wok full of un-eaten food on the hob. What a waste and the place stank! I made my breakfast and took it back to my room because I didn’t want to be in the kitchen when it was like that. I went to my lectures and came back to find that the same person had cooked breakfast for a few people, the kitchen table was covered in greasy pans and not a single thing had been washed up, from last night or this morning. And because they hadn’t done their washing up from before they had had to use my cutlery and stuff, which I wouldn’t mind if they washed up after they had used it but they didn’t and they also broke one of my forks! It all sounds rather petty but added to the fact that some knob broke the knob off our oven in Thursday so we have no oven until Estates can replace it, it’s all rather annoying!
It’s been almost four months now but I miss Oscar every day. There are days when you just need to wrap your arms around a horse, and today is one of them. As soon as the snow clears up I’m going to head over to Telford Equestrian and book a lesson! Partly because I need to get back in the saddle, and partly because I need to do SOMETHING other than uni work and watch crap on YouTube!
