So I have moved into the new place today. I have been in my new place for all of 15 minutes (lol) before I left for the office.
I woke up at 6:30 am and lazed around at home. A sudden feeling on uneasiness surrounded me from last night and enveloped me as I tried to face the day. I do not know why I was feeling so; this is something that I have been wanting for a very long time. I just wish that I had more money and that the place was in Cochin rather than in the Chalakudy/Thrissur area. I love Cochin and if I am staying in Kerala, I would prefer to stay in my hometown. Unless you know it’s a really well paying job and I can get a nice apartment, which I can make as a home.
So anyway, I took my time over coffee and then had another cup much later. I stayed online not wanting to pack. But pack I had to and by 8:30 am I started doing that. By 9 am it was like the sky was crying – it got so dark and overcast and it started pouring rain. Aww the city is gonna miss me. Don’t worry, I will be back during the weekends – atleast for now. So I watched the rains for a bit and then packed all my clothes. I took a shower and then packed my toiletries that I had just bought the previous evening – soaps, shaving cream, shaving brush, toothbrush, tooth paste, shaving razor, talcum powder and deodorant. Then it was onto the things I needed for the home – 4 normal size plates, 4 smaller plates, a kettle, coffee mug, 3 cooking vessels, 1 bowl, electric stove, knives, spoons, forks, glasses, some jars (sugar & salt included in two jars), bedsheets, pillow covers, 2 buckets and a mug – did I miss anything?
I packed in my laptop, charger, speakers, one of my external hard drives, an extension cord and a few dvds. I won’t have internet connection for a few days and so I need entertainment! Like I stated earlier, I’ve bought a bed+mattress, a pillow and a plastic table which will be my only furniture. The landlord has given me a chair which I shall gladly use for the moment. I’d like to get a computer table & chair next month. I changed my clothes and a hired driver and car came to pick me up and load this stuff into the back. I said bye to my mom and called up my dad to say that I was leaving. Just outside the apartment there is a nice store from where I purchased the two buckets and a mug. We left the city by 12 pm and with the heavy rains came the traffic blocks and so made it to Chalakudy by 1:30 pm.
I got the key from the landlord’s wife, opened the door and with the help of the driver kept all my stuff in the kitchen and my bedroom. 15 minutes later I was on my way to the office and then paid the driver and headed for the canteen for lunch before entering the office. I’m at work now but will leave soon for my new home. I’ve gotta buy some coffee powder and then see what I can make for dinner. Watch a movie on the laptop and then sleep for the first time in a new bed, in a new place.
