Thankfully we've found a share house to move into! Living with 4 or 5 others (not sure if the other room available was taken by a single or a couple) It's nice and warm, huge room, small backyard and well priced. Wireless internet so i'll be an internerd again very soon and it's close to a tube and shops and not far for me to ride a pushy to work. We saw 5 other places and this was the best by far. Very relieved, it was getting quite nerve wrecking waiting to find out.
Off to the city today for a poke around, no blue skies today, quite grey and extra chilly.
