I've been working on making my apartment the home I want it to be. I've decided not to save up for a house because even if I could do it I'd be forced to live on a stone after buying it. If something happened, roof flying off in a storm or water damage or some other unforeseen problem, I'd be forced to take a loan to pay for it. I really don't like the thought of that.

So I'll be staying in my apartment and I'll be renovating it so it fits my needs. I already bought a new oven :)

So there’s some stuff I need to get done:


  • The balcony will be closed off with windows so I'll have an extra room

  • I’ll be putting tile up in the kitchen.

  • I'll be painting a few places to make sure everything looks good

  • I'm going to buy some things I've been wanting for the apartment, bookcases and plants.

  • The garden house in my allotment garden will get fixed as well. It needs a new roof. I'll be buying some stuff for the garden that I've wanted for the last few seasons.

I feel much more contend now that I've made my final decision. I can see myself living in my apartment until I get so old I can't make it to the second floor anymore.

It feels like this year is going to be fucking awesome.

Leftover beef stew made from leftover roast beef and veggies. Some things just get better with age. Sounds like your apartment is going to be fantastic and better than a house that would stretch you to the limit to maintain. Good for you!

Thanks.

Bought a few things at Ikea yesterday and feel really good about this whole project!

Nice. I bought a house and since May I've had so much break down. I think the original owners (house was built in the 70s) never replaced anything. *sigh*

The houses I'd been looking at all were very old (some as old as 100+ years) because that's what I would be able to afford. Just the thought of what the upkeep on a house like that would cost gives me anxiety.
