(Most of the commentary is from when this page was put up in the personal section to show my friends my new house)

You know you're in for trouble when you get a 'phone call from your lawyer starting "You know how you were supposed to complete on your house today...?"

I hadn't been in my new job a week. I had to rush out of work to grab a bus back in to town, but as the boss wasn't in the office it took a while to get his OK, so I had plenty of time to get even more frantic, which lead to me running full pelt into a patch of mud. Picture me walking into a bank, mud all down one leg, blood dripping from cuts on both hands, demanding a banker's draught for several grand... There was at least blood and sweat expended in the enterprise. And the laptop, while working for a while, finally died when I stripped it down to replace the broken hinge.

But I got the deposit to the lawyers in time, and the sale went through at the last minute. On my 35th birthday.

The pain! The pain! It might not look much, but going into a bank streaming with blood isn't on my list of fun things to do.

One of the first things I saw when moving in was this chap. My parents had chosen, of all days, this day to go on a trip, so I walked the family dog up to the new house at 8am to let the movers in at 9. However, they were already there, so I pushed the dog out back, let the movers in, and went to see if the dog was OK. He sat there oblivious as one of the resident foxes wandered past, and they've been coming in to the garden ever since. Partly because I feed them every night!

The living room is slightly smaller than the one I had in Chichester, but only by a bit, so the layout is pretty much the same.

Due to the door being in a diagonal slice taken out of the corner of the room, and the position of the light switch, there's only really room for two bookcases instead of four.

A proper kitchen this time round, which is where I spent a lot of time for the first week or two. Mainly because it's south facing, so plenty of light compared to the living room in the evening. But then, the electric meter was token-based at that point, until NPower realised I'd been a customer for several years Dahn Sahf and so didn't need to spend a year buying electrickery in fiver pound lumps before they'd swap the meter.

When I first viewed the property, this entire room was vivid pink. This is the toned-down version (it's now cream and jade-green).
