I mentioned yesterday that I was going to view a flat today, in hopes of moving out of my parents’ place and actually starting to become an adult.
The flat I went to see was in a little place called The Furlongs here in Hamilton; it’s a lovely little area, full of trees and SQUIRRELS, with not a lot of traffic, just a ten or fifteen minute walk away from The Water Palace. It’s the perfect place for me to live.
I think, right now, though, I can’t move. The amount of money it’d take to move in (£320 deposit; one month’s rent; £90 admin fee) I just don’t have right now. The Rent Deposit Scheme people would only help me by covering the deposit, but not the first month’s rent.
So I have to save. Not sure how, but I’ll have to.
ANYWAY, the thing I’m most excited about isn’t the flat (although it was a nice little flat; just the perfect size for me – and Janey, too, if she came over to live with me) but what I wore to go to the viewing. I figured that, if I wanted to make a good impression, I should dress nicely. I was going to wear my nautical-style skirt, but when I was reaching into my drawer to get it, I saw my Beth Ditto Heart Print Bubble Skirt, and I thought…
Well, let’s give it a try.
The last time I tried the skirt on, it was so tight on me it was stretched across my stomach, and I couldn’t sit down in it.
Well, it’s not loose on me, but it sits comfortably enough. I can sit down in it.
I looked kind of adorable.
I wore it with my Evans purple trench coat that I bought last year, and I just looked DAMN good.
And all I kept on saying was I can’t believe that I can finally fit into my skirt.
After how much I paid for the damn thing, and I take a year to fit into it?
At least I can finally fit into it.
I’m really, really pleased with myself. I can fit into my awesome skirt. 😀
And I looked cute in it.Let's get social:
