I took this photo of myself on Saturday, when I visited the coast for the day. I went to St Leonard’s-on-Sea on the South Coast of England to meet someone with regards to a possible house-share down there. I have been thinking of relocating for some time, and would enjoy living by the sea. I think it would be beneficial for my health, in more ways than one.
I have set up an account on a housing website, and posted an ad saying that I am looking for either a ready-made house share, or for someone to buddy up with me, and we find a place to rent together. I put in the ad that the area I am interested in moving to is the South Coast. A lady contacted me and suggested we meet up, so I went down to St Leonard’s last Saturday and met her for lunch. However, I don’t think I have found the right person yet – although she seemed nice enough, I got the feeling we would not be that compatible to live together (and I think the same thing may well have occurred to her too).
It was a disappointing day, and all the more so as I had a bit of an accident in my car on the way back! It was a long drive, I was tired, it was getting dark, and I was driving down a narrow, windy country road and hit the bank on the right hand side of the road. The wheel was bust and I had to call the AA Breakdown Recovery Service to tow me home. The car is in the garage now being repaired, and it is going to cost me about £200 or more, money I can ill afford, as I am very hard up anyway.
So I came home feeling that the day had been a bit of a disaster really! But one thing I have got out of it, is that it has made me reconsider my moving plans. I know it is not going to be at all easy to find the right place or person to share with, so I am thinking it might be best for me to put my plans on hold for a while at least, and see what happens.
