I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this, but we (very) recently moved into a new house. It’s a bit odd. For instance, there are no doors except to the closets and the basement. Really. The yard isn’t much. There’s mainly just a big pond that I’m not at all keen on and then there are sheds that are too far away from the house. Finally, there’s a sort of veranda that isn’t in good shape. But I don’t want to give you the impression this is a bad house. It isn’t. We could afford it, that’s the main thing and also it’s been newly renovated and looks really nice even if there are a few things not yet working properly.

It’s just a bit scary. Last night we woke up to find the front door standing open, not just unlocked. It felt really creepy. There was no one other than us in the house and my sister was out in the sheds during the day so I’m pretty sure she just forgot to lock the door and the storm opened it, but you know, it was really spooky. We’ve also heard some spooky noises inside the house. Also, there’s this small attic space that we can’t get to from the inside, it’s just visible from the outside. No way are we going to open it up and check if there’s anything inside. I’m not into spooky or creepy, especially not in real life.

As long as nothing more happens, I’ll be fine, but if something does happen I’m not sure I want to stay here. Great. We just bought the house and if we can’t stay here we’ll have to sell it. So I’m really hoping we’ll get used to the noises. I’m sure there’s nothing really wrong here, it’s just an old house that we’re not used to yet.

A bit of whining…

Posted on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 in My life, Whining

On Monday, my sister and I went up to see a house, very close to our cottage. Yes, I know that sounds weird, but our thinking was that this house has indoor plumbing which our place doesn’t. Considering how expensive these things can be, we thought we might be able to save a bit on that (at least if we could bid lower than the owners really want). Instead, we were uncomfortably reminded of how very isolated both houses are. So we probably won’t make a bid, even though it’s a very nice little house, just not quite as awesome as our own. I just wish someone we knew, some friend or relative would want it, but we don’t really have anyone like that.

That’s not what I was going to whine about though. When we were getting ready to leave the bus, we pressed the buzzer and stood waiting by the sliding back door. We thought we did everything right, but the driver just kept driving past our stop and one other and wouldn’t have stopped there either, if I hadn’t started calling out and a nice passenger got up and yelled at him. He stepped on the brakes and let us off, without a word of apology. I think that he was running late and didn’t want to bother with letting us off. Bastard. He left us in the middle of a rather intensely trafficked road (one not built for all that traffic), trying to avoid being hit. One more reason not to move out there, unfortunately.

Another reason is that even when we did get to the nearest town, there wasn’t that much to choose between in the shops, especially for us vegans. Still, both shops were open, even on The Second Day of Easter (whatever that’s called in English…?).
