Yay

I've rented out my spare room! It's been about 6-7 weeks or so since my last flatmate moved out, and it's been kind of crippling me financially to pay double rent. It has been nice in a way to have the place to myself though. You know, the freedom to do the nudie run from bedroom to bathroom if required. Uninhibited dancing around the living room to 80s pop music. Those sorts of things.

The big upside is obviously financial, but I'm looking forward to having her move in, to have the company also, and I think we're going to get along well. She's a Canadian student here until November who I met through the knitting social networking website Ravelry. Then she came over to meet properly and have a chat a few nights ago. The real deal sealer though, we were chatting about tv (given its importance in my life) and she confessed "The one show I am obsessed with though is the Australian "So You Think You Can Dance".

My reply, "Oh, you and I are going to get along just fine."

Oh yay! She's the one that posted about looking for a place? I'm so glad she was able to find something so good! :)

Yes Kris, that's her! She's realy nice, and she's digging Newtown already. I think she's going to enjoy living in the 'hood.

Yay! Now I can start saving to raplace my piece-o-crap computer. And buy a new sofa. And... well you get the idea.

She's a knitter too? Well done!

The Other Andrew said...

M-H, yes she's the one who posted to a bunch of Sydney groups on Ravelry to say she was loooking for accomodation. Perfect timing.
