Yesterday I took the first step in looking for a new home... I hate open for inspections because the house suddenly gets flooded with lots of other hopeful-tenants checking rooms, looking in cupboards and planning whether their furniture will fit. It also means that you don't get much of a chance to meet the agent or make an impression - and to me that's what wins a rental.
I'm also loathe to get too excited about a place until I know that it's mine because otherwise I get disappointed... BUT the place I saw yesterday would be perfect!!! The right number of rooms, cupboards in the right places, a decent kitchen and bathroom, not to big, enclosed yard, and dog friendly, patio area with outdoor furniture, close to work and in a nice looking area, but the real clincher... was the studio/bungalow out the back! I've put my application in and now I'll just have to wait and see but in the meantime I'll be out looking at other places.
Oh and my cryptic texture/pattern photo from yesterday was...
The patterns that the neighbours tiled roof makes when through a glass tile. Amazing huh!!
