Hello everyone! My family left last night for Italy, so now I can finally relax and tell you all about my moving in experience. I had a very busy day yesterday, unpacking and running around town! But it was worth it. We got into Leicester in the morning and, since I was the first of my housemates to get here, I had to go collect the keys at the agency. It was all very easy and straight forward, really, and as soon as we got into the house we started unpacking. Luckily the agency had let us move some stuff in in June, but I still was relieved to have my family helping me out with all the bags, and especially all the cleaning (which was definitely needed). I also forced them to take me food shopping, just to see the puzzled looks on their faces when confronted with English supermarkets. I know that feeling. 😉
Apart from minor things, the house is now perfectly inhabitable. We still have some more cleaning to do, and we need hunt the spiders one by one until they’re all gone. I hate spiders.
But my room looks great, and I already love it here! I can’t tell you what a blessing it was to have gas, water and electricity already sorted! The agency took care of everything, leaving to us the matter of broadband. Which we haven’t fixed yet, by the way, reason why I’m writing you from the University library (it’s weird to be here again, but it feels good 😀 ).
As you can imagine I couldn’t do much about the broadband from Italy, and given the fact that no one was to be here before the end of the month, we decided to deal with it later. Oh yes, I forgot to tell you… I won’t be staying here for long, now. Actually, I’m leaving again tonight! With other two housemates, arriving today, I’m going on a road trip around UK! I am so excited! I won’t be taking my computer with me, so I won’t be posting for a couple of weeks. But I’ll write as soon as I’m back, just in time for International and Freshers Fair, the preparations of which will surely drive me nuts… but I don’t worry about that for now! Summer is not over yet! (..even though the English weather would make one think so 😛 )
