She’s gone…

The flatmate is gone.

She decided two weeks ago she was going to leave and move into a place of her own. She has been here for a year and 2 months so it’s understandable. On the one hand, it’s a bit of a downer as it does mean a loss of money.

But there’s a huge part of me that’s glad though. More space in the house (until I get another flatmate). Cleanliness according to my standards, especially in the kitchen (What is it with people not keeping the kitchen clean??). Not worrying about someone else being home when I get home (Apart from Pebbles). No trashy reality TV on in the lounge room (Yes, she was a reality TV fan). No more worrying about neighbours thinking I’m nuts due to Opera singing coming from the unit. And no more do-it-yourself attempts resulting in possible breakages (A few things including the bedroom doorknob was broken in this process). And no more homophobic comments!

I’m going to enjoy my space for a while at least. Until I have to deal with another flatmate.

And in the mean time, I get to clean the house this long weekend!

Until next time,

    My two flatmates have moved out to. One for a live in relationship with her guy and the second one to a place closer to College. I too am enjoying the space but i hope someone good and tolerable turns up soon.

    Welcome here Archiekc! It definitely is very enjoyable…to the point where I don’t want a flatmate at all!

    I love my solitude PV! The flatmate and I didn’t spend too much time together anyway…she was out often and the only time we spent together was watching telly on some weeknights.

    It’s a bit of a dilemma isn’t it RedHanded? On the one hand, it’s great to have the place to yourself. But on the other hand, it’s better the devil you know than someone new who you don’t have a clue about!

    Yes Scribby! πŸ™‚ Oh she was homophobic and when we’d watch telly together, she’d make these comments which annoyed me. This after I made my views clear that there was no problem with homosexuality.

    Thanks Bikram…I’m at a stage where ideally I wouldn’t want another! Will have to assess the finances!
