New Home

The search is over. I found myself a new apartment, in a nice neighbourhood close my ex’s place, where the Junior Warrior will be living too. It’s a senior apartment on the top floor and of course there’s a lift, so I won’t have to conquer any stairs anymore.


Though I really hadn’t planned on moving so soon again, I’m really rather chuffed about this. And I’ve got big plans for this apartment.

I intend to convert the balcony into my own little piece of paradise, with lots of plants, a cosy seating area and netting to keep the cats from taking the plunge to freedom.

I could turn the spare bedroom into a private gym, complete with rubber flooring, one or more large mirrors, a pull up bar, weight bench and of course a punching bag. Sounds good? I thought so too. That should get my lazy arse moving.

But apart from the wants, there’s also some needs.

I need to install a wheelchair accessible kitchen, because it’s getting harder and harder for me to use a standard kitchen, which means I don’t do nearly as much cooking and baking as I’d like to.

I may need a wheelchair accessible bathroom too, but for the time being a simple Ikea Marius stool (which costs next to nothing) is a good enough shower stool for me. And seeing that I’m just a small guy, I really don’t want a high toilet. Nor do I need any grab bars. A low sink would be nice, but isn’t necessary yet, but my wrists insist that I get myself single-handle faucets in both the bathroom and the kitchen.

Obviously, since I only moved into my current apartment less than a year ago, I don’t have a ton of money to spend on my new apartment so I’ll have to think very carefully about what has to come first and what can wait. I may not be able to do any painting , e.g., but I can always do that later.

First things first.

    Looks like I have some catching up to do with your blog! You moved again. I hope this place will suit you better. It sounds lovely. In an odd way, I don’t mind moving. It really makes me sort through my things and keep what is really important and needed. Looking forward to seeing your new spot! Take care Liam!
