November 29, 2010 back to reality
London was very busy! and quite fun. It’s such a brilliant and thrilling city, I was just gutted I didn’t get to spend a bit more time there. Still, it does feel like a kind of alternate reality and i’m kind of relieved to get back. The poem has nowhere near taken form.

In other news, EJD and I did find a house on friday. It’s a minuscule flat – dark and cramped BUT warm and modern and in the best location ever, right off the top of the parade. Also it has a bath, an epic bonus. And we have it to ourselves, which is kind of unusual for uni but i think it will be really fun. No more boys playing fifa on the xbox for a start. We can listen to Nina Simone and dance around to Michael Bublé to our hearts’ content!
So because it’s a tiny space I’ve been thinking about how we can make it really cool and practical. Reassured by this post I got all excited about space-saving solutions and already can’t wait for that all-important trip to ikea.
