Leaving my apartment!

resiliationNo chance in the world I will have a warm and cozy home as long as the reality I live in is showing me the contrary. I have had enough of living in a badly isolated apartment, having 3 electric radiators on maximum power, having only 100 liters tank that warms the water, having a floor that is ice cold because the owner is living in south of France…what else? Oh, just found out my electric bill since September until today is 545 € !!! (in my apartment in Copenhagen,  that was three times larger I only spent 30 € / month for electricity. Paying 1 080 € excl. charges for an apartment where I don’t feel comfortable is not my cup of tea! (and I don’t even want to think about the 1 800€ the agency has been paid for this, cannot recommend Saona Immobilier, not a professional agency and a huge lack of service). And I am tired of filling up several plastic bottles each night with hot water to put in my bed in order to keep myself warm during the night. It’s unacceptable….

According to the LOA (Law Of Attraction) you cannot attract something into your life when you are holding on to something you do not like. That’s why I wrote a formal letter, after have spoken with my landlord and informed him about my intention of terminate the contract) and sent it by registered mail. Yes, we are in France. Everything has to be done the formal way. I’m obliged to pay for December too…but now I’m ready, I have manifested my desire (read a warm home) and now I just need to set back and let the Universe to take care of the delivery ;-)

    So glad we met last nite Solli!
    Ouch on that electric bill…that seems madly insane.
    At least movie theaters are well heated in Paris, though in summer I often had to request they turn up or ON the AC ahem…
    If you find a place you like be sure and visit at night.
    My last place was an explosion of garbage trucks everynight plus all the pollution from them. i had no idea from a daytime visit. It was a street full of shops. now I’m in a cul-de-sac with no cars or noise. Also no proper stove but hey this is Paris.
    Definitely check Darty for a small electric pad to get you through December.
    Cheers Carolg

    Urgh I feel you on the cold thing. It’s so not fun having to cover yourself in hot water bottles!
