Who would have thought the experience would be so debilitating. I hate to bore you by harping on the whole flat-hunting thing but it’s my only excuse for being semi-missing for the last few weeks and failing to follow through on minor things like emails, prize draws and blogging (housework got completely ignored too if that makes you feel better).

After an abysmal day on Monday and a £$&*^$&* of an agent on Tuesday morning (see conversation no. 1 below but change £50 to £100) we cracked it and gave up on Bayswater altogether.

Within 24 hours we had closed on a flat in Fulham :-D

A bit further for Neil to ride to work, but not terrible, and fantastic for me - only half an hour tube or a do-able walk if I’m feeling very energetic. We’ll be moving in about 2 weeks.

Here’s a link to the property listing (it won’t work forever but it’ll be up still for a couple of days I expect) http://www.findaproperty.com/displayprop.aspx?edid=00&salerent=1&pid=358276&agentid=04632


P.S. There’s a huge lounge room with room for at least two spinning wheels :-D

    It looks wonderful! Best feature as I see it: windows! Good luck in your move.

    Yep, the light is fantastic. The loungeroom is at the front, south-facing and there’s the big front window and the little balcony with glass door. It’s going to be a fabulous place to sit and work.

    There’s also a nice big window from the bedroom overlooking the back garden, and even a window from the kitchen :-)

    London rents. Ouch! Mind you it’s pretty much the same in Oxford.

    That looks lovely and spacious (well, until it’s been filled with fibery goodness!) Do you get use of the garden too?

    Well done!

    Flat looks really gorgeous and lots of light and space as well:-) Glad the nightmare is over and good luck with the move. Look forward to coming over for dinner one night, he he he he!!!!!!!!

    Great place, Diane - glad you’ve finally got it sorted. Room for wheels, but not much for stash, methinks..! Room for a windowbox anywhere? Alix

    Wow, what a lovely space. I am glad you found something that works for you. I wish rents were that low in my little corner of the US.

    Too late for the link to work; have to wait and hear all about it in your next long and newsy email ;-)

    Glad you were able to find something you like! Finding someplace in London is never easy.

    Hope the move goes smoothly.

    I was too slow to see the link, too. But it sounds fabulous, and I can’t wait to see photos once you get settled. Congrats on finding a place–I know house & flat hunting is never any fun!
