Hurrah!!! We have the house!!

Haven’t blogged about this, as we hadn’t had it confirmed by the landlord that he was happy to let the place to us with a guarantor (both new graduates, no salaries as yet), but he’s fine with it, and the agency are fine with it so the boyfriend has gone down to Wokingham today to hand in forms and pay some of the deposit to secure it. So, yay, lovely, lovely house!!

It’s sooooo amazing, I’ve been all twitchy about it over the weekend in case we didn’t get it. It’s a (probably) Victorian terrace, two-up two-down, with a funky wooden staircase and a kitchen at the back of the house. It’s really light and airy, fortunately there aren’t any hideous carpets or curtains we have to put up with, and there’s a long, thin garden (all patio) where we can have barbecues.


Ideas are bubbling through my brain! Salad crops in grow-bags on the patio, potatoes in tyres, things in pots and troughs… Wormeries… Furniture from family, second-hand shops, charity shops, ebay… Finding a milkman… Getting to know the market… PYO not a million miles away, too…

A whole new chapter of my life, and a whole new host of opportunities to make it greener.

Now all I need is a job!

Rob Hopkins, Transition Handbook

“Environmentalists have often been guilty of presenting people with a mental image of the world’s least desirable holiday destination – some seedy bed and breakfast near Torquay, with nylon sheets, cold tea and soggy toast – and expecting them to get excited about the prospect of NOT going there. The logic and the psychology are all wrong.”

Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

"Food is that rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is generally the one more likely to make you groan with pleasure."

Carlo Petrini

"A gastronome who is not also an environmentalist is an idiot. An environmentalist who is not also a gastronome is, well, sad."

Sharon Astyk

"I am, of course, firmly opposed to consumerism and corporatism in all its forms, and I believe that we are deeply confused about material needs and wants. Now let me explain how books and yarn are totally different than the material things that other people want ;-)…."

Raj Patel, at Slow Food Nation

"Biofuels, which is the preposterous policy that we should grow food not to eat it but to set it on fire."
