It's pretty frustrating - the living room is full of stuff that should be in the study/bedroom, the mattress from the bed is in the middle of the study floor most of the time (except when it's propped against the wall to give us some space), and clothes are all over the place. It rarely seems worth tidying up because the place can't get anywhere near 'tidy'. It's been two weeks so far, and it seems likely that it's going to be at least another three before I have a flat I actually like living in.
The one saving grace is Julie, who has been incredibly supportive, helpful and lovely throughout it all. It's not quite so bad sleeping on a mattress in the study when I'm sleeping next to her :->
Anyway - fingers crossed that it doesn't end up costing me too much money, and that a month from now we'll have a flat that we can actually have people round to visit!
