I am holding the keys to my new place! It has been such an adventure to find a place to live in London, with a part-time job. I found a flatshare and I am very grateful!
I am moving in today and I need to deliver the keys of my temporary “chez-moi” by 15.00.
It’s going to be a long day since my flatmate is also moving in on the same day and we need to coordinate.
New Month, New Home, New Life?
I am on the look for a new flatshare or studio in London! Any ideas and suggestions? It seems that I got myself a regular job, to begin with, so this should help.
Hello, I am April, writer looking for a beautiful room or studio in London.
Please feel free to recommend me.
I am friendly, happy-go-lucky, clean and quiet, smiling.
Here it is.
I started looking on-line and spotted some studios, but if by any chance you have any suggestions, they are very welcome!
Hi there October,
am I the only person who doesn’t know how to use a gas stove? And is this a reason to laugh at me? Of course gas stoves exist in France. But I had never been faced to one.
And now, I found myself in my new flat, where everything is different somehow. I need to think :
a. how do I open the window?
b. how do I use the gas stove without causing damage…
c. how do I use the washing machine?
d. is this the way you turn on the shower?
Anyway, it is not a question of a cultural change, no. Here, I simply admit that I am not very handy with machines and objects. I spend twice as much time to do the simplest thing.
But still, this is fun.
Not that I don’t have any fears. Last night I had a nightmare. I was telling my best friend that I didn’t know if I was destroying myself and others with my risks:
To come to London and spend some of my last economies in order to be create in a different artistic Platform. A place that seems dynamic and welcoming.Will I be up to their expectations?
To rent a flat with two bedrooms without really affording it. Couldn’t I just start small, with a tiny room? Will I find soon the right flatmate?
Somehow it was easier to persuade a real estate agent than a group of people for a flatshare.
So here I am. With my autumn cold. Sneezing.
But still, daring to dream and cook around the clock 🙂
