Exploring Our Options.

So our lease in this flat is going to be up in a few months; in actual fact, since it's been over six months since Jase first moved in, we can give our notice period anytime now really. I adore our flat, but if there was an option to move somewhere closer to work/the city and in a nicer place, let's face it: I'd take it.

I went looking at a couple of apartments after work today, just because the opportunity fell into my lap. I probably shouldn't have gone, because I am the world's most impatient person and also? I'm great at getting my hopes up. I saw a cute two-bedroom place, close to the station but not overly big. Then I was taken to a brand new block of apartments, never been lived in, very modern and flash, and shown the most amazing one-bedroom place, with a huge adjoining terrace and massive living area. That was it. I was in love.

Sadly, it was way over our budget; but I then saw the last place of the day - a nice, one-bedroom place that has a huge big bedroom, spacious living room and loads of floor space. I want it. I want it NOW!

(See? I told you I shouldn't have gone looking.)

So now it's down to Jase checking out this place, and for us to make the decision if we want to move or not. Either way, we will be spending a little more on rent, but we're closer to central London, and the flats are perfect. I just wish I had an extra fifty pounds a week to spare, because I would've put a deposit down on the terrace flat in a heartbeat.

Decisions suck. And so does waiting!

I hate apartment hunting!

Moving decisions are so hard, and so is the waiting. Good luck on the perfect new place!

I honestly cannot wait to move back home. Josh and I are living about an hour from where we're both from, and our lease ends in August, so we'll definitely be moving back. :)

Good luck!!

I couldn't agree with you more. I am SO ready to move to Providence it's not even funny.

I am horrid at looking for places to live. Mostly because I fall in love with twenty and realize we can't afford any of them. Thankfully we are quite smitten with our current apartment. Good luck! babe.

i hear you on being impatient for sure. sometimes i feel like i am constantly waiting for life to happen to me. you may not like country music but i think you need to listen to the song "you're gonna miss this" by trace adkins. puts a perspective on things. :)

Good luck with that decision. At first I was thinking - an extra 50 pounds is not so bad; I don't know if I could stick to my guns like that. But then I realized you said "per week" - and 200 pounds a months? That's a lot!

I'm a big believer, though, that time (=less commuting) is worth the money.

Blah. We're thinking about moving too, but also considering buying something (scary!). The idea of packing again makes me feel much dread.

Jenn said...

I'm ridiculously impatient when it comes to things like this.

Jess said...

That last one sounds a lot like our apartment now. Which we adore. I hope you get it! And soon!

Laurel said...

I hope you get that apartment, too!! It sounds divine and it IS nicer to be closer to everything.

I lived in 6 different apartments in California in 6 years. I hate moving and looking for new apartments.

I think that's why I have lived in my current place for 3 years.
