I've lost my keyboard adapter. In fact, I fear I may have thrown it out by accident. When we were moving house, I just tossed it into a bag of old socks, which was then thrown under my bed and forgotten. I can't remember if I ever took that adapter out (probably not, as I last used my keyboard yonks ago), but during a massive cleanout I had recently, I'm pretty sure that bag wound up straight in the bin.

Actually, it could be in my wardrobe somewhere. I may have taken it out of the bag and then shoved it in a box somewhere. I hope this is the case, because I'd love to learn how to play keyboard, as well.

New House: Day the Second

The end of my second full day is drawing near. The sun's setting as I write this; it's quite a sight. My window faces west, so the sun sets outside of it. And with the road being nice and wide, I can see a lot of sky from my room, which means in the evenings I have a spectacular view of the sunset.

Two days in and I still feel a little weird in a new house. But it doesn't feel as weird or oppressive as my old house did. When I lived there, I was picked on an awful lot and there was a lot of stress regarding the local area - so in moving, I've put all that behind me. Dad's much happier here, as well, and I have a bigger room with bigger windows. I don't feel claustrophobic any more. It still feels odd because most of my stuff remains packed and I'm still adjusting, but it's better.

Music's helping an awful lot. Huzzah for stealage of Dad's stereo. I've got Kevin Ayers and the Whole World's 'Lunatic's Lament' playing right now, listening to Mike Oldfield unleash that blistering guitar solo. I've worked a little on the novel but it's proving hard to get back into. I just planned chapter fifteen and the start of sixteen.

Anyway, here's some bedroom/college supplies waffling )

Ergh. Results day today. I don't know whether I should be excited or shitting myself right now. Last school year, there were times where I really didn't put as much work in as I should have had, but only in Art and Photography. Those are the two subjects that are worrying me the most right now. English Language and Literature not so much; I gave them all I've got, but I'd still like four good AS-Levels to secure a place at a university somewhere.

Guess what, people? I am officially writing to you all from Newton-le-Willows. We've officially moved. I'm sitting on my bed, a desk beside me and a pile of bags by the opposite wall. The walls are hideous - my fault for shredding the paper - and there's still so much to do before I can call it home but you know what? It feels damn good.

Right now, Dad and Nathan are off to the old place to gather up the last of our possessions. Most of our stuff is here, but we left behind Dad's model boats, my brothers' RC cars (they have a fleet of them) and a shelving unit where we normally keep the DVDs and PS2/Wii games. They should be back soon... I was getting up as they left and since then I've had time to find my missing hairbrush to tame my developing afro, take more of my junk upstairs, make a coffee and write up to here on this entry.

So, what else do I need to do on le bedroom? I need to finish stripping the wallpaper off. That should take a couple of hours. I need a nice, thick carpet because my feet hate wooden flooring and my ears hate how noisy it is. To get this in (and to strip/paint my walls) I'll have to get everything out and then back in again... You should have seen me trying to get my furniture arranged yesterday. It was madness (madness...? IT - WAS - SPAAARTAAAAA!)

Well, the priority for now then is walls and flooring. I have a temporary blind, at least (my bed's high for a low-sleeper and next to the window so the whole world can see me now) and bedding can wait.

Y'know, as bizarre as being in a new house is, I slept like the dead last night. I was a little uneasy at first but once I was out of it, I was out of it. Wow... that's the first decent sleep I've had in literally a week!

The gas company are coming to sort us out today so my 'eeew no bath for weeks' point is officially invalid. I think I'll have a good long soak tonight to say goodbye to one hell of a chaotic week.

Now that moving's out of the way I can focus on my beloved novel again! I'll ease myself back into it later by reading my previous chapter, having a quick flick through my notes, and I'll only do two pages. There's still a lot to do around the house today so I won't be able to manage much.
