One of the things about setting up a new home is that there’s no shortage of stuff you need to get. This apartment might be “furnished”, but that doesn’t mean it has every creature comfort. For complicated reasons to do with loyalty card promotions I have bought myself a Christmas present in November: speakers. They are not, of course, top of the range speakers. This is a very small apartment, and my landlord lives next door. But they are much better than the internal speakers on my computers. At long last I have decent music. This place is starting to become comfortable.
