Having been left behind by mum it was time to pick myself up and start all over again in London.
All by myself. No home, no job and no idea.
I started with looking for a place to put all my extra luggage and went out house hunting.
After countless hours scrolling spareroom.com I decided to go to their speedflatmating event in Camden.
This was the list I went there with. The list that would determine what house would be suitable. You basically turn up at the event and either get a sticker saying "I need a room" or "I have a room". And on these stickers you write your maximum price and what area you would prefer.
Turns out everyone with the "I have a room" stickers might as well had just worn stickers saying "You can't afford this". But the night wasn't a total disappointment. I went out for a smoke and met a nice guy who turned out to be a regular dj of the place we were at. He went back in to dj and I got talking with some nice blokes whose room was well out of my price range but they were nice. We went out to a shisha cafe and then I left them to go say bye to dj.
Ended up sitting with dj and his stick figure stunner of a girlfriend speaking with them for nearly 2 hours. They were such great people and I will hopefully get a chance to meet with them before I leave.
The next day I ended up getting ridiculously lucky and finding a place 10min from Camden on the tube, 10min walk to the station and as reasonable a price I would find. I went over, saw the house. Only flaw is that I can't have people over but big woop I don't have friends here who don't have there own places anyway.
These photos are here to highlight the fact that I came back from a sweltering hot summer in Poland to this. Summer in London, charming.
When I got home I was locked out of the friend's house I was staying at so here are a couple of photos of me conversing with the kittys. Sadly the orange one had to be put down a couple of weeks after I left :( R.I.P no name slob.
I called it that because it always reminded me of the cat from Breakfast at Tiffany's, and I may have sung Moon River to it on more then one occasion.
But good news is that I have a home!
Now just to get a job.
With Love from London
