Good news...

Good news... We got the flat in Gothenburg!! We've signed the contract and will be getting the keys so we can move in at the beginning of May!! Yay!! The contract on our current flat won't expire until the end of May so we'll end up paying 2 lots of rent for a month which is a bit annoying, but at least we can move in our stuff gradually over the month, rather than rushing to do it all in one day!



I went into Gothenburg yesterday for a bit of a girlie shopping trip as Daniel was away on a company ski trip. It was really nice to wander round what will be our new neighbourhood and spy out nice restaurants and interesting shops. Our new flat is right in the centre of town, close to all the shops, bars, restaurants and museums, which will be great after living for 2 years in our little village! I think the thing we'll miss most from our current flat is being so close to the lakes and countryside, but as Gothenburg is on the coast I guess we'll make up for it with trips to the seaside - although the though of it ever being warm enough to go to the beach and sunbathe is a very strange one at the moment!!

That's great news about the flat, I'd heard how hard it is to find one to rent over there. And Gothenberg sounds like a cool place to live! Good luck with the move x

I'm glad you'll be transferring to your new flat. It's nice to be in a new environment, the thrill of decorating the place and having new neighbors.

Excellent news! I look forward to hearing all about the move, and about life in the (comparatively) big city, when the time comes.
