Still have not been paid by my previous employer. I understand we've had a few bank holidays at this time of year but we're meant to be paid on the first of the month, its now the 9th. I really don't know what to do if they don't pay this.

My fucking neck is shooting pain into the back of my eyes again. Nothing helps as far as painkillers go. I'm really sick of it.

Going to start paying rent and food costs from Friday, but given how much the parents are charging me I may try to move out because it wouldn't be so much more expensive.

I think if you are spending ~600£ a month in keep at your parents gaff, yep. Less if you are social enough to live in shared accommodation, the very thought makes me shudder. Half if you have a friend to share with. Doesn't include food bill or utilities, but that was just the prices in Solihull. Might be more/less expensive where you are.



Edit: Could live in my area mind. I get lecky, water, 100mb internet (and it is, not this 'up to' nonsense), rent sets me back ~300€ a month. Only up front costs are getting brain damage from this barbaric language. I don't like renting though, much prefer to own my own house. Very much counter the culture over here.

In qm I couldn't tell you but we've got a reasonable sized living room, bedroom and dining room, a kitchen and a toilet. Oh and a balcony, don't forget the balcony. Definitely sufficient for the two of us to live here. The other things that make this flat excellent are the stuff like the nearest tram is a 30 second walk away which will take you to Weinheim railway station in 2 minutes or Heidelberg or Mannheim (depending on which direction you are going in) in 30 minutes a piece, train station is 10 minutes away, town centre is 10 minutes away, train station is on the mainline from Frankfurt to Heidelberg. Buses are reasonably common though I don't get on them. Nearest Lidl is a 30 second walk away and 2 supermarkets in the space of a 3 minute walk from here. I have never lived in a place where the public transport is so spot on and I probably never will.
