I arrived in the new apartment on Saturday and it seems really good. Currently, we just need to buy more drawers, racks and curtains, connect the internet and sort out the hot water.

Right now, there's a problem with the hot water valve. Somebody painted over it and it leaks. We only found out late Saturday because the landlord didn't book us an appointment with Tokyo Gas as we'd been told as so they had to come round to connect us after the landlord's office had closed. Our only choice was to call on Sunday, but they couldn't do anything. Because it was Sunday. I hope they get their act together soon, because I want a shower!

...And internet, of course. Oh, and I'm quite serious when I say that if you notice the Velvet Under World site has been updated and I haven't posted about having an internet connection yet, TEXT ME AND TELL ME.

Anyway, apart from that, the location is perfect. Rent is cheaper here, so the food is cheaper too. There's a huge park nearby with a river, grass you can walk on(!) and lots of wildlife. Train is very happy too and there's also a nice-looking gym. The main drawback (apart from the lack of hot water) is that the apartment is about fifteen to twenty minutes walk from the station. Still, it only means more exercise, right?

I have drunk too much coffee at this net cafe. *sad face*

Ugh~ Good luck getting the water fixed!
The neighborhood sounds nice, except for that walk to the station. Man, I'd get a bike just to take to the station. XD;

Too much coffee? What?

I can't be bothered with bicycles, since there's nowhere to park them legally. I'd rather walk, actually.

eh, that's a bit of a pain.
I only had my bike (in working order) for 2 weeks, but that definitely wasn't enough time to get comfortable with it. The thought of having a bike inside Tokyo makes my stomach hurt, though I wonder if the outskirts along the Chuo line are less crowded enough to be all right. (somehow Chuuou line just looks too complicated written out properly.)

At least it's good exercise to walk? (^-^)b

*points down* glad you got the water taken care of!

I do hope the issue of having no hot water gets resolved soon...
The place sounds very calming for some reason~^^
Caffeine is good~^^

Come over then! I'm free tomorrow! There's an interesting-looking karaoke place here that seems really cheap. It's not a chain, so I don't know what it looks like inside though...

And we have icecream!

New apartment - other than the hot water issue - sounds wonderful! May you and yours have a wonderful time living in it!

Thank you! The hot water issue was settled yesterday, so we're okay for now!
