    So I've been living at the house for around two months now and everybody is due to move in soon now summer is almost up. It feels a bit weird being here alone for all this time and knowing others are due to move in very soon. I love baking and I was wondering if I should bake some cakes and cookies to welcome them in, or would that seem a bit forced?

    Also, as nobody else moved in at the start of the tenancy, I had to buy all the kitchen equipment; pots, pans e.t.c they still need to buy a few plates and a few more utensils but barely anything. Do you think I'd be able to get away with not contributing to shared costs of household stuff for a month or two to offset against the fact they barely have to buy anything?

    say to them 'I've had to buy a load of stuff to get the house up and running, do you want me to work out each persons share to pay me back or shall I just not pay X for a month or two?'

    and yeah baking cookies is great
