It went OK, he briefly showed me round, but I'm not sure. I don't think I'm going to go for it to be honest. The house is nice enough but it's quite a walk from the station and there wasn't any buses nearby. With my bad hip, I don't want to have to walk miles every day.
There just seem to be a lot of reasons why I shouldn't move in there, like having to get rid of a lot of my furniture, and not having my own space. As well as practical issues like the only bathroom being downstairs etc.
When I told my Dad about the amount of rent I'd be paying, he said why pay that much for one room when I could spend a bit more and have my own place. Makes sense really. I viewed another flat yesterday which I really liked. I'm probably going to go for that one.
I've never moved "alone" before, it's always been with a boyfriend that I've lived with, or (like the last time) with someone (my ex) who was helping with a lot of the heavy stuff. It feels very strange to do all of this by myself.
Go to Glasgow at least once in your life and have a roll and square sliced sausage and a cup of tea. When you feel the tea coursing over your spice-singed tongue, you'll know what I mean when I say:
'It's good to be alive!'"
