We only have 2 weeks of work left in Edinburgh weeeee! cant wait. I have had my resume put forth for a role at Goldman Sachs and I haven't even started looking yet! so hopefully all goes well, there are heaps of job spots in London...
Glenn and I flew down Friday night for house hunting on Saturday, start off as a bit of a nightmare, we booked on the last flight from Edinburgh which is 21:45. so we got there early to have some dinner and a few "mood enhancers" (wine) for me. The flight was then delayed for an hour and a half... when we got to Gatwick we took the express train into london which took 40 minutes then had to line up for an hour for a taxi because the tube we need was closed for rail works (happens quite a bit in London), we ended up getting to our hotel at 2am, then had to get up at 6:30am for our first viewing at 8:30am. Needless to say we were a little bit silly Saturday.
But it ended up really well. The first place we had lined up was for a private place i has seen on the internet Friday, as soon as I saw it I thought perfect. great location exactly what we wanted... and it was! We finished that viewing and thought we should see the others, we saw 2 after that than rang the guy back and took it. The second one we saw was a joke! seriously a matchbox and the third was a converted warehouse so okay but no balcony. So after we viewed the third we went to the nearest pub to celebrate and to ring the guy of course.
Here are some pics (one thing to keep in mind apartments in London are much smaller, this one is half the size of our current place but as a great long balcony along the outside) oh and it also has a view of the Gherkin!
It´s a converted school house, top floor so it is going to be great for my very absent fitness level!
We are also going to get bikes so we can cycle to work..
