Leaving the flat

July 12, 2010 - France

There are a few things on the to-do list still left over from France – I’ve not got the deposit back from the flat, and I’ve not managed to get a refund on the rental insurance (because I need a document from the landlord that says that the contract has been properly terminated and I think that’ll come when the deposit does). I’ve not yet closed my French bank account, either, for the reasons outlined above.

When I was living in Grenoble I’d send emails in French all the time, but for some reason now I’m back I find it really hard to get motivated to write stuff in French. Actually, I’m finding it hard to get motivated to write stuff in any language (English, c++, matlab…) but that might just be a function of unemployment. Hey ho. Maybe writing a blog post mentioning a lack of motivation will give me the kick up the arse I need. Or maybe I’ll just go to my 12.30 appointment at the job-centre then pop for a pub lunch to recover.

Anyway, here’s a guided tour of the flat that I recorded just before leaving – as you can see, it wasn’t a bad little flat.

    So? How is the motivation doing?

    I guess the best thing is to try and at least get a couple of things crossed off the list, hoping that once you are in the groove a few more things may get done too.

    I am just off to practice my own advice … wish me luck!
