Hab B, Day 37

Back at Habitat B, were welcomed by owner and tenant. On our way here we swung by a grocery store and got some necessities, food stuffs and diapers.

We totally missed out on gruel, last bottle were just served and one of us have to bicycle to a nearby store, as the evening feeding would be a scream fest without it. The same for tomorrow morning.

Checking out of Habitat X was a breeze, the not so fun part was to carry everything we brought for the weekend.

Hab X, Day 36

In a hotel in town since yesterday evening, same hotel as before but in a different, smaller room. Last time, the room were one bigger room with a balcony towards one of the busy streets below, now we have windows facing the other direction, inwards to a yard or parking lot in between the houses.
Since we’re not here for the view, I could as well have the windows removed and bricked up but I’m not alone in this – we spend most of the time out and away from the room anyway.
Today we went to Erikslund, a large shopping center area in the outskirts of Västerås, just browsed around, tried the food court and picked up small stuff and did the mandatory tour through IKEA.

Back at the hotel again we did some laundry.

Hab B, Day 34

Zombie today. Slept beside son, he tosses and turns though the night.

Thinking about changing Habitat B for something else as it’s cramped for space, kitchen access, access to laundry room. Alternative is not cheap, hotel room for 3 weeks.

We need to move out of Habitat B tomorrow afternoon, Habitat X over the weekend and then back into Habitat B Sunday afternoon.

At the moment I have slight angst and if this move isn’t giving me white hair there must be something wrong. The bank hasn’t replied yet and today it’s a month left to move in, I really hope there isn’t any problems with financing or anything.

Soon time to go to bed.

Hab X, Day 31

Back to work and first day as a Västerås city dweller, feels good and we are enjoying the city, but we are living in a smallish hotel room all three of us, son is not always happy with the cramped conditions. The room is pretty much a few square meters of naked floor, small couch (from where I write this), a wall hanged desk, a tv and two regular sized beds, son sleeps in a travel baby bed, we also have a nice large balcony with view of a central street below and the entrance of a shopping center across the street.

Tomorrow afternoon we can check in at Habitat B, where we can stay til Friday afternoon as it had been booked, we either go back to Habitat X or go to a yet unknown location to stay over the weekend, after the weekend we can move back to Habitat B and stay for the reminder of the month.

Tomorrow is also introduction day for our son at his new daycare center, it’s located about 200 meters from our (future) Home Base FLV5. We both need to attend as it is introduction for us as well for the son, to get to know the staff and they get to know us.

Hab X, Day 30

Yay! We left Habitat L this afternoon, without problems. We are officially part of the Västerås population.

Now we are at an alternative accommodation after spending the afternoon with my dad, our stuff dropped off at Habitat B. Habitat X is a hotel in central Västerås and I have less than 300 meter to the office.

Woke up well before 06 this morning, putting stuff in order and packing backpacks, bags and boxes. Went into to town far too early, stores didn’t open until 12 and we had to wait, spent time waiting through a visit at McDonkeys to feed the son. Got the stuff and then went home. Met with land lord and returned the keys after a tour around the rooms to check for broken or missing things, nothing broken or missing besides the things we had reported as such, the shower wall, which they thought were installation error, tightened screws too much or something.
