New Flat – Move in at the Start of December!

Success! After being told to move out of our flat before xmas by my landlord, i have quickly organised a new flat, in Bow, East London. Why East London? No idea, really. It was something that i could fix up quickly and also is a cheaper area so we do get a nice brand new flat which we’d never be able to afford to rent in the Clapham area.

I am also excited that we can try out a new part of London having only ever lived in Clapham whilst here in London town.

We’re slap on the Devons Road DLR and close to Mile End Tube so getting to work should be fairly easy.

After flat sharing for a year it is great to finally to have a place of our own right in time for xmas, which will be a great relief. There is enough storage space to finally tidy away everything as our current room is messy and it will be more comfortable when we’ve moved.

Here we go for some lovely Chinese food….

Just needs a big TV on the wall…

Get Well Soon to the Butcher…

It is time for a shout to a certain Butcher who is recuperating at the moment. I hope he will be on the mend soon. Ruby and I fancy popping up to the land of industry and the Reddick and Caveman are welcome to join us too. I am up for some crab catching by the sea, but would it be safe to eat them??! :-) Oh and Strachan is out finally, so you can enjoy that too.

On another note, i hope Reddick is recovering after some exhuberant celebrations with his FC United and their famous victory last weekend (at Rochdale?). Reminds me a bit of Cambridge in the 1990s when we used to win lots of Cup matches.

I am pleased to announce i have two 3-week holidays coming up soon so will be really enjoying the xmas period this year. I’ve two weeks to use up before the end of the year which roll onto xmas week. After that we’ve a trip to China for 3 weeks in Jan/Feb to see Ruby’s family and enjoy Chinese Spring Festival. For the first time since arriving in May, Ruby is starting to miss China a little bit so i am hoping that this long holiday will make her happier. After paying for the two flight tickets i am going to keep it cheap for the rest of the month, spending time on my affiliate sites to make a little extra cash, and also hopefully brewing some decent cider at home with my fancy new kit. The cider should be ready in a fortnight…

Recently we popped out to Battersea fireworks plus some mushroom picking in Essex a few weeks back, but not much else apart from that.

Am excitedly waiting for the Ashes to start at the end of the month and can’t wait for some time off at last!!!
