35/56 Anti-cat DIY

The first thing I checked when I entered the new apartment, were couches and kitchen chairs. The two couches and the four kitchen chairs seats are leather. Having cats, my main concern was to do anything to save them from the power of claws. I fitted throws and other covers on the couches, and this…

33/56 Friendly words

Sometimes, during tough times, people who you think are far from you and your experiences, can surprise you with just a sentence. Sometimes the most simple thing can be the most powerful. The most powerful words are the ones that hit the target without having being uttered with any intention. A couple of weeks ago,…

32/56 Snow days

This┬ácouple of snow days have been a blessing. I don’t like snow at all, but I have to admit this time I have to thank it. Even though I risk to get something broken every time I leave home, or even though now everything will turn into grey slush. Last Sunday, February 25th, I officially…

25/56 Moved – and giveaway winner

Couldn’t keep up with my journal in the last few days because I was living in between the old and the new place, and the internet had already been moved. We finished moving yesterday, thanks to all the beautiful people who helped me. And I’m writing on an empty stomach, since I couldn’t go shopping…

19/56 The good spirits

I’ve always been sure that there is somebody looking over me in the most critical times of my life. I’m also pretty sure of who this spirit is. I don’t believe in a God, but I’m sure there is some kind of energy in the world, dedicated to every one of us. It can manifest…

18/56 Home & Neighbours

Most of what made it so enjoyable living in this house, was the relationship with my neighbours. This home is part of a block of 5 houses, all sharing the same back garden. I wouldn’t meet any neighbours during winter, but summer turned the garden into a friendly meeting point. I remember when I moved…

17/56 To risk or not to risk?

I have left a bit of suspence yesterday. I was silent, and today I can talk again. We got a new accommodation!!! As it usually happens, all buses were passing at the same time yesterday for me and my housemate. We had a perfect house landlord who had to choose by today between us and…

15/56 Love & absence

I thought of writing a love post today, on Valentine’s day. It will be a post still related to this rent eviction experience, of course. Let’s start saying that Mr J and I obviously don’t live together, and usually meet at the weekend. It’s now been at least 3 weeks (if not more) since the…

14/56 Too much empathy

One of the things that this experience is teaching me, is that too much empathy is not good. At first, I worried for me and all the other neighbours in my situation. Really imagining their thughts, their stress, their worries. Then I found the two potential housemates, and I was worried because one of the…
