I wrote this a year ago and saw it as the beginning of an end. A love letter to my flat.

Dearest 20 Navarino Road - word came through today that I will be parted from you. It has been seven years - from watching gang members fight, to sneering at Alexa Chung wannabes riding around on customised bikes while eating campari cupcakes and talking about their boyfriends crap band - we have seen it all. I know that after you have been gutted and painted and incorporated into a “luxury hip 2 bedroom” you will look like a tart but I will ALWAYS love you. I also know that when an overpaid tv assistant or brand manager moves in you will remember me, because I saw your beauty when my friends laughed. These same friends have secretly coveted you more and more with every passing year as you blossomed. I stripped your floorboards, painted your walls, bought you presents, paintings, curtains and furniture and styled you within an inch of your life. I was the one who spent days staring at your authentic ceiling medallion wondering if it was late georgian or early victorian and opened up your chimney to let you warm yourself again. I love you Navarino Road. My last days will be heaven - I am hanging a “do not disturb” sign on the door so we can be alone. You, me, a fire, a deck of cards and a bottle of wine - just like old times, when I was truly happy.
