I don't expect them to be quiet during the day or even through the night as I said in an earlier post, the house holds it's noise in its rooms very well (I've wandered downstairs at midnight before and a housemate has been partying with mates yelling and I didn't even know because I couldn't hear them upstairs). The only problem is the sound system downstairs but the housemate who owns that is potentially moving out, and he's always getting yelled at by the other housemates for it so I'd say that habit of his will not be tolerated this year newborn in the house or not.
I won't be stopping uni at all and I know it will be difficult until I can get into the swing of it (very difficult) but Im confident I will be fine (Im a uni student after all, I've mastered uni on two hours sleep, a 5000 word essay and a lot of scotch before so reverse it from the idiot partying and cramming to small periods of study when I can etc it'll be doable. Very difficult but doable).
If I moved back to dads it's quite likely that he won't be there at all so I will be 2 hours from my support (close friends) and uni. If I did that I would move back to Newcastle after six months though (so in the new year 2014).
