We're moving to Berlin.
*pauses for cheering to stop*
Don't panic. This won't change the way I feel about you. :) It just means that for the next six months, I'll be coming at you with some live 'cop-a-feels' of rooms we're looking at here. For fun, right? To give you an idea.
I never realized what all went into a room search in another country before I got here. But man. It's a mess. And this time, we're going to use a moving company *REAL CHEERING HERE* which means I need to get my butt on a room search.
But here's one I find particularly pretty, and the hubs is going by to see it today...after his meetings in the city are done.
Isn't it PRETTEH? I like odd things about rooms, but in Berlin you have the opportunity to have (more than in many other cities in Germany):
- 'Altbau' : which means an old house, built before the 70's...so complete with high ceilings, mouldings, and beautiful floors
- Which deserve a mention all their own. What I'm finding is herringbone-patterened wood flooring, which makes me nuts. I love it.
- Old heating/'artistic' rooms: Rooms in Germany come (normally) unrenovated. Which means the person before just moved out. You're responsible for painting, etc etc etc and normally here you have to bring your own kitchen. Because they don't provide you one.
Otherwise, things are going great with the new MS. I'm averaging about 2k a day, which with the time I have is mad good. I have the feeling this book might be done before I even get the revisions for FS done, and really, I'm okay with it. Reactions are (so far) *overwhelmingly* positive. And I like that.
So back to the room search! And writing! And working! And exercising! *whew*
