New Start?

flat 1

Excited to be moving in to my ‘smart flat’ as my Dad called it, which in many ways it is, with some lovely internal features and a great location near the waterside.

I have also unfortunately been sorely challenged with a number of unforeseen environmental issues. Silverfish infestation throughout (apparently in a couple of blocks), MEV Unit switched off and malfunctioning (compulsory 24 hour mechanical ventilation) and a lack of deep clean of the flat. All resulting in a diagnosis of asthma, which I have never had before, and an increase in spending to deal with it all.

A stressful start to what was meant to be a positive move!

Even now just over 4 months later I am still achieving resolution. Progress is being made, albeit slowly, and at the cost of my health. I have unwittingly acquired enough material to keep me posting here for some time.

I’ll be starting with the lighter aspect of floor cleaning next post…

  1. Very familiar. I’ve just had to move out of my flat due to my MCS being aggravated in a huge way by things going on in other flats. Not the first time I’ve had to do that either! I hope things pick up for you soon.

    • Thanks Sezzy for reading and commenting. I’m really sorry you’ve also been experiencing similar MCS difficulties with your home. That’s awful you had to move out but I understand that you’d have too.

      Things around housing that may take longer to affect others, or not affect them, hit us acutely. I hope you are able to find some suitable housing. I saw a long time ago that there was ‘allergy-free housing’ but it was up in Perth in Scotland.

      Thanks I have made some changes which seem to be helping which i’ll blog about. I hope they’ll be enough.

      Take care,
