This move has taught me several things. The first is that having friends is really a wonderful thing, especially if they are strong and can be bought with baguettes and tea. The second is that even if it’s your 22nd move since you were 18, it doesn’t get easier, especially when you have furniture. And the third thing is has taught me is that if you want something but it seems unattainable and even a little scary, go after it. You can get it with some dreaming, some haggling and by putting one foot in front of the other.
Happy New Year – I’ll be offline constructing my new flat, fixing my new office and lounging on lots of floor space. (Thank-you, Santa. I do believe.)
