Get out of my motherfucking house

I've been up since 6 because I need to clean my house and make it all nice so that other people can come tramping through, poking into my cupboards and judging my taste in interior design.

One is coming this morning and one is coming tomorrow morning.

This may well happen every morning until I move. On 20 December.

Always my least favourite part of moving, this is. It feels so invasive and personal.

Like, can't they make do with photos? I could draw them some pictures of what it looks like. I'll let them look through the windows. Can't say fairer than that.


Not for the first time - more accurately -  for about the 90th time, I'm wondering if I'm doing the right thing.

One of the problems of spending most of your time on your own is that there is no one to use as a sounding board. No one to check that your latest life plan isn't a big pile of steaming turd. No one to pat you on the head and say: "there, there" and "it'll be OK".

Even if it is just empty platitudes by someone who knows no more than me about my future, it would still be nice to have every now and again.

I'll just keep blundering on through for now. I must stop moving house at some point though. It's very tiring.


  1. Did you look around the house before you moved in or did you just look at photos?

  2. Did you take that part literally?

  3. I'm a very literal person :)

  4. Do I really need to put a disclaimer on every blog post pointing out that not everything I say is the literal truth? I thought it was pretty obvious.

  5. Does this (and the title of your recent dog-creche posting) mean you're leaving York? Where are you going?

  6. In my experience, "sounding-boards" are just as likely to blur the issue as they are to provide clarity and insight. If the "pros" of making a new start outweigh the "cons" of staying in York, then you've made the right decision - based on what you know and how you feel. Trust your own instincts - and Good Luck!
