The one serious problem is going to be the parking. I knew there was no parking in the building itself but nobody told me that Camden will not issue resident permits to people living in this 'car-free development' building. That is a serious problem for me as I don't have a job, I have work to do with all those guitar lessons all over North London as far out as Watford. Please don't mention again push-bikes, scooters or car clubs. None of these would be a solution, for different reasons. At the moment I'm sort of coasting along on the existing resident permit for the old flat, which runs out in March, but I do need to find a solution for this as, at present, I cannot afford this flat if I have to give up the car.
Ok, those are the bad bits. The good bits are many. It is good to be in my own space and (40% at any rate) in my own place. No flatmates, for one thing! Although I miss kaerasta and violetdisregard on the whole I don't miss the experience. The flat is tiny but just right for me, there's all sorts of little details that I like about it. Everything still works (until flaviofication sets in) and it looks that it will not cost me more to live here than at the old shared flat in KTR (barring humongous winter gas bills or something like that). I find I'm going out less because I simply enjoy being here. That means I'm spending less money in going out..
So the balance is very positive and, car parking solution pending, very worth the while those six months of aggro and stress to get to this point.
