We’re oop norf…
Sorry lovely readers, we’ve been so completely swamped with things to do and STILL having no internet, that we’ve not been able to write any posts for a while… but we are back!
So, a quick update: we’ve found the most lovely of lovely apartments. We started off by looking for a two bedroom house, but the Estate Agents completely ignored what we were asking for. We wanted something ready to be moved into immediately and near Jason’s family. The places they suggested were mostly miles away and the ones we saw were either covered in rubbish (literally – the previous owners hadn’t bothered to even clean up their trash) or needed a lot of work. In the first house, I touched a wall and my hand came away wet. The places stunk of smoke or mould and the bathrooms were grim, in one place they hadn’t even bothered to clean the toilet. We were a bit gutted, as having lived in an apartment in Berlin, we were ready for our own house with a garden, but on the off-chance we had a look at a two-bedroom new build flat and we both fell in love instantly. The carpet is so very soft and lushious and the building is one year old, so no mould, no holes and no problems.
We actually wanted to stay in Berlin purely for our apartment, but we eventually realised that’s not really a good excuse to stay somewhere. It was so big and spacious and incredibly cheap… but to our amazement our new place is even lovelier. Our massive super-king-sized bed just about fits in the bedroom but the double king we brought back from Germany didn’t fit into the spare room, so now we have an office. It’s got Jason’s computer/ nerding-out area and my sewing and crafting area. It’s just all so lovely and we’ve made it homely already. I don’t want to move ever again!
We are loving Liverpool and there’s lots of fun things to tell you about. We’ve explored Lark Lane, China Town, the main shopping area and lots around there too. So keep reading for more
