New digs

My hands smell of chemicals. Dettol and dirt, dust and soap and some generic bathroom cleanser from Tesco.

Having moved yesterday, I had to go back to the place that housed me for three and something years to clean up, to hoover and wipe and rid the place completely of myself.

There were buckets of sweat in the scrubbing but not a wistful sigh to be heard.

Shorn of my stuff the flat was just a shell and it's hard to get nostalgic for a place without people, a place with paper thin walls and fighting couples overhead and students next door and... That's all well written by now.

Anyway, it's led me to this, back to living with Fitzbollix.

I have counted the tea bags, the slices of bread, the nice chocolate mini-dealies from Marks and Spencer. I have taken inventory and consider this a further warning to the man directly - stay out of my underwear drawer.

It's for your own good.

Does he know any nice ladies?

He knows plenty about Belgian lager beers and that's good enough for me.

Kitty Cat said...

Yay for suitable housemates! And not a geebag student neighbour to be had, I take it.

Radge said...

Nope, not a one. The only geebag in the place is me and, to a lesser degree, Fitzbollix.

You must be nearer to Kiely's now. Upturned collars will be more plentiful.

Radge said...

The air rifle is in the post.

Congrats m'dear, hope it works out better than the last place.

Radge said...

Thanks Green, it's already proved to be 816 times better than the last place.

Do you want a cheap, and good looking air rifle? Then perhaps, you should check the caliber pneumatic pump air rifle. This air rifle can shoot both BBs and pellets accurately. With maximum power of pellets, this particular item is comparable to some of the electric power best air rifles .
