After 3 reasonably gruelling weeks of living off the kindness of family and the occasional hotel, we have finally signed the papers on a flat and moved in! One catch, however is, that neither Sam nor I actually own any furniture! Lots of flats in London come furnished and we’d had the good fortune to live furnished ones in previous flats. In fact, after 10 years of living in London Sam doesn’t own a single stick of furniture!
So we’ll slowly but surely start doing the place up. I envision us at a lot of charity shops and car boot sales in the future.
And we aren’t planning on moving again anytime soon. Hopefully we’ll continue to save up money and the next time we move it will be because we bought a place. Renting is a bit like throwing money down the drain in London. But hurray for our home!
