Musiclovers thread got me onto this,

but tonight i have been to see a new place to live as i am really wanting to move out of my mums now and have more independence.

I have been looking for a wee while and went to see one on Tuesday but that one didn't wow me as much as the on tonight did,

I can post pictures of tonights too in the next post.

But its 450 quid a month Including, water, gas, electric, t.v. licence.

Its 30 mins from work, 20 mins from my mums and close to where i hang out.

If i go for it i will be ringing the agent tomorrow and arranging the deposit etc...

That is a really cute pad. Love the hardward floors and the kitchen looks very practical. Go for it.

Carpeting is such a pain. Have all hardwood floors, but they can get really dusty especially under your bean bag lounge:wah:

Do you happen to know anything about your neighbours? I guess if they are really friendly they might pop along and say hi once you are moved in which would be nice!

that landlord and lady live in the house above as its a basement flat,

but i am sure i will get to know the others, although i know the area very well its in a place called Garforth/ Leeds,

I have just found a floor/duster type thing for under 10 quid which looks perfect.

I hope my bubble doesn't burst tomorrow. :D

I searched the net for some neat bedroom furniture, but gave up as I wasn't sure of your colour schemes etc. But I did find this rather neat bedroom accessory :yh_drool

I really hope it works out for you, I love the kitchen, if you need advice on buying gadgets for the kitchen let me know - I have drawers stuffed with them!!!!
