So I have a flatmate.
Which is new.
Katie’s house is getting work done to it and she WAS planning on staying with Michael but well, that’s not so much an option any more. (I wonder if I could go stay with him…. Probably not.)
I actually like having her here; she’s helpful, fun and learned some cooking skills from Michael. Although cooking reminds her of him, so as long as you don’t mind that your food is spiced with bitter tears of heartbreak and loneliness…. It’s really very tasty.
Also she drives, (which I think is funny considering she COULD fly into work if she wanted.) which means she gives me a lift. Avoiding public transport, always a plus.
Really the only downside is the two annoying habits she has in the morning.
1. She gets up really early and goes to the gym before coming back having a shower and driving me to work. It’s no that she wakes me up, or that she uses all the hot water... No it’s that when I get out of bed to be confronted by the chipper “already been awake for hours and done things with her day” woman making me breakfast, I can’t help but feel like I am a useless sack of lazy with no possibility of positive contribution to society. (Which is a feeling that usually takes me an entire day to develop.)
2. Okay yes she does actually use all the hot water.
At least it’s only for a couple of weeks…
…and I should really be assertive enough to talk to her, explain that I need hot water too. She’s a nice person, she’ll understand, it’s not like am going to upset her.
Although she has just been through a breakup and isn’t even able to find the comfort of her own home.
Maybe if I shower before bed??
