The perils of the internet

July 25, 2006 at 4:35 pm 5 comments

I am currently in a limbo – the man I am trying to buy the apartment from is currently off the island. I think everything is OK, but I would love to have things signed so that I know that it is really mine. In the meanwhile, I am trying not to get too excited – don’t want to build my hopes incase everythign falls apart.

But I keep getting carried away and finding myself looking at furniture and household shops online. Being realistic, I am aware that most of the furniture for this apartment will either be tiefed from my parents’ house and begged from anyone, with only a few essentials (fridge, stove, sofa, tv) being bought.

However, I am heading to England next summer for a wedding. And I am already trying to work out how much I can fit into my suitcases on the way back! I am already becoming like my friends who have houses and abandonning ideas of filling my suitcase with pretty new clothes for new dreams of colourful shower curtains, chunky cutlery, soft towels, interesting key hangers and huge pasta bowls. And I am able to research those dreams, do my window shopping over the internet so that when I get there, I know exactly where to head.

This will be the first place that is all mine – not rented and not shared with anyone else. It will be mine to make mistakes with the choice of paint colours, mine to hang my photos and paintings all over, mine to plant the garden as I want, and, of course, mine to get a kitten and train it as I want!

So in the meanwhile, while waiting for the selling man to return, I am trying to distract myself. This evening’s distraction will be ‘The devil wears Prada’ – Tuesday nights is 2 for 1 at the cinema so an evening of girly laughter is ahead of me.
