Or whatever it's spelled.
Well it's a done deal, I'm now the official owner of a most lovely flat !! I just signed the papers this afternoon. I was a bit nervous at first because I had the feeling something would go wrong, the notary (I guess it's called that) would find out something was missing or one of the loan paper would be incorrectly filled out... I just couldn't picture things going smoothly which is nevertheless, what happened.

After signing, I went straight to the flat to check it out, see what I'm gonna need to buy, snap some pictures and videos for my gran' and basically just look around and enjoy the view :) I love it so far.
There's a few things I need to fix, nothing serious (some paint, wallpaper, wood floor) but it's gonna take some time and the worse of the furniture won't be there before May 19th. I should properly move in around first of second week of June.
Which means I'm hosting the BR august birthday/good bye party/bash dance extravaganza and some.

And icing on the cake, I just had a call from a really really dear friend of mine: his wife gave birth to an healthy, yet from the pictures quite ugly (she's got his nose, poor thing :) baby girl named Caitlin. He's kind of stoned right now but he's happy, we all are !
Please join me in giving her a warm welcome to our little corner of the Universe.

Shame he lives in Normandy now, I really want to stop by and say hi to the kid :)

P.S.: French peeps don't forget the vote on Sunday *fingers crossed*. I really don't want Sarkozy to win this *fingers double crossed*.

*big deep voice on*
Ok so now it's for real, I've been playing this in my head over and over again, trying to figure out how it would be, how it would feel and tonight at 6.30 pm I'll find out.
*big deep voice off*
Seriously, I'm supposed to meet this guy who is selling his flat and sign a provisional sale agreement, I think this is gonna be the biggest check I've ever written :)
I had a look at the flat twice and it's okay: 4th floor, no lift, 3 rooms, 56m2, a cellar, right next to the train station, 10 mns from the shops, about 200m from the Seine.

But it's not over just yet, there's about 100 things that can go wrong from now on, biggest of them being the bank refusing my loan. But if everything goes according to (carefully laid :) plans, I should get the keys in about 2 months and then it's party time in my eye socket and everybody's invited :)
I think it's gonna be tough for the first couple of years, I'm gonna have to save on everything I can (that includes turning the ice cream down :). And I need to find a long term job, temp work pays good but it's bad for the nerves when you don't know if you'll still have a job in 6 months.
(yep I'm a temp and I'm buying a flat, I'm not quite right in my head).
Nevertheless, I'm pretty confident it can work ! Wish me luck guys.

*EDIT* Well, meeting has been canceled. Seems that, with me being a temp, there's higher chances I don't get the loan and the seller doesn't want to take any chances, he needs to sell quickly because he's moving out. So yep, it appears deal's going south. I need to make a few phone calls tomorrow and I'll try again on Monday. I'm not about to give up just yet.
And thanks for the good wishes, people :)
