Sweet home

I wish I lived here

It is a strange thing to live alone in a house that isn't mine. My friends have gone away for a few days, entrusting me with eating all the perishable food in the fridge and little else. I cooked yesterday, for the first time since I moved to the UK, and today I lay around the living room --- all of which, you know, is very nice, but none of it is actually mine. I love their home (and them, of course), but I shall be glad to move to my own digs next week and settle in properly to this one-year sampler of London life.

So yes, I've got a place to live. We get keys next week and I'll be moved in before classes start, although installing broadband service might take anything from a few weeks to a couple of months, based on what friends have warned us. Oh England.

Details and pictures to come, as things take shape. Right now my most pressing Foamy Latte Problem is how I can dress up the place a little, since we're (predictably) forbidden from hanging anything that might damage the walls.

3M command hooks ftw. No heavy picture frames though.

That is a lovely place indeed. Can't wait to see pictures of your new place. Who are you moving in with?

Lucian > Yep, I've used those in Singapore before, quite successfully. The thing is, sometimes the object I want to hang up has a hook mechanism that doesn't fit well with any of the 3M hooks. But anyway I didn't bring any wall hangings with me, so the first order of business is to rustle up some cheaply from markets and such.

Joan > Moving in with a friend who wishes to remain (fairly) anonymous. :)
