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…

13/56 Keeping my beautiful cool demeanour

I remember when I got my first job in Dublin, and I didn’t like it at all. On the first day, I left the office in tears, feeling depressed and in a totally uncomfortable zone. Then I got into the working routine. I still didn’t like it, but things had turned quite decent. Once, at…

12/56 From house to home, and back

When you decide to change your lifestyle, then you achieve that goal, and get used to it, it’s not easy to go back to what was before. This is what is happening to me. I got used to live on my own, to have my spaces, to do things at my rythm, to listen only…

11/56 Pop up shop

Today, I didn’t think about my house riddle at all. I was too busy setting up at the pop up shop, networking with beautiful people in a welcoming place, packing up again, coming back home and getting ready to go out with one of my best friends ever. Moonily Yours was today at this pop…

10/56 Crafted my day

After yesterday’s┬ástory, today I woke up with the snow. It was my fault again. In the afternoon, I saw the best house I have seen so far since the begininning of the hunting. Since it was so nice, there were too many people to see it. I even tried to convince the owner with a…

9/56 Procrastination queen

I could win a prize in procrastination. I actually have moments when I hate to put anything off, but some things are just so boring! After considering it for a while (I took my lazy time), I listened to my neighbour’s suggestion, and bought a stove online. According to my usual luck, it arrived damaged,…

8/56 Blaming and bla bla bla

I remember when I moved to Ireland and was looking for a job. I only knew I wanted to stay here, so I was looking for any type of job. Every restaurant, shop, website, had my resume. The only thing missing was experience. I had never worked before in my life, except from baby-sitting maybe….

7/56 A wrong day

Number 7 was once supposed to be a lucky one. Not today. Not for me. At work, I had to attend the longest workshop ever, and late morning I started having some belly cramps. After work, I went to see 2 houses. The first one was one of many apartments lined on more floors with…
