Move To The Cottage

Well, Claire and I’s move is now confirmed: on 5th June 2006 we’ll leave The Place and head down to our new home, The Cottage. As usual, all offers of help with the move will be much appreciated and rewarded with beer and/or food, depending on the time of day at which the assistance is rendered. And, like last time, we’ll be putting photos online as we take them. Ooh; look, here’s some now!
It doesn’t really feel like we’ve lived in The Place that long: it’s less than six months ago that we moved in, and we’d hoped that we’d have been there a little longer. Nonetheless, The Cottage is lovely: nestled away in a little-known about part of town, surrounded by some fascinating architecture, and with a couple of nice perks I’m sure I’ll fill you in on as time goes on.

It is, however, a little bit smaller than The Place. Some of this space will be reclaimed: for example, there is no bed in the spare room which will give us more space to populate with desks, chairs, and computer gear. Some of it is less-able to be salvaged: for example, the living room – while as long as the one at The Place – is noticabley narrower, and also suffers from the addition of a dining table to it, rather than in the kitchen as is the case at The Place.

As a result, things may become more than a little bit cozy in September, when Troma Night once again comes into full swing. To be honest, we’re just not sure. Maybe it’ll be fine with a little jiggering and pokering, or maybe we’ll have to go with Plan B – the relocation (perhaps on a week-to-week basis) of Troma Night to various venues around Aberystwyth. But there’s nothing to worry about yet (or, perhaps, at all) – we’ll just have to wait and see.

    Aye, the living room is a weird shape, too, but I’m sure something can be made of it. Maybe we can shift the dining table somewhere… We need to move in, measure up, buy what furniture we need and throw out what junk we don’t. I’m looking forward to it!

    I don’t think you guys should break your backs trying to accomodate troma night in your new place – you’ve been dealing with a steady flow of randoms for at least three years now, and ‘Roaming Troma’ is a nice idea.

    I’ve wanted to host Tromanight for a while now, but living in UWA accommodation doesn’t really help… I couldn’t host more than 5 or 6 people at most. Even then it’d be a squeeze…

    I’ll be around and be more than happy to help with the move.

  5. Beth Beth says:

    How come you have to move again so soon? If Troma Nights do end up moving about I’d be more than happy to host some next year, I’m planning on attending alot more! Oh and I might be back on the 5th having just moved myself so will lend a hand if you like

    Yup, I’m up for helping you guys move. I liked your pics, seems like a nice place :-)

  7. Claire Claire says:

    Thanks rockmonkey, Beth, Sundeep for your offers of help. Rest assured there will be rewards if you make good on them!

    I’d be happy to host the occasional Tromanight, but space is limited to around 10 seated and maybe 5 sitting on the floor.
