Fulham - here we come!

We've found a cozy, furnished room in Fulham. It's in Zone 2, so the usual exorbitant rent applies, but overall it'll still save us over 200 pounds a month, in comparison to what we are paying now! Even better, my journey to work will be reduced down to about 20 minutes, straight up on the District line to Notting Hill. This is going to be living in London proper, which I reckon we might as well do while we're here - to try all that city living has to offer. It'll be a totally new experience to be just about in the thick of things, as neither Tito nor myself have ever really lived in a big city before. The room is above a shop (which, incidentally sells imported Buddhist paraphenalia - hope the vibes drift upwards!) and less than 5 minutes walk to the tube - a walk past a dangerous-looking Turkish delight shop, as well as copious other enticing bars, shops and restaurants. It's an extremely pleasant and convenient area. We'll miss the quiet and leafy greenness of Crystal Palace, but we realise that type of living is more appropriate for those who have a good reason to be there: car or flat ownership, or perhaps a pet or children who require close proximity to the park (which is, btw, happily due to getting a good sprucing up in time for the Olympics). Tito and I have enjoyed relaxing in our flat over the summer months; getting used to being in the U.K. and having some privacy at long last. Onto our next adventure - we move in on the 28th, which is my 28th birthday - that's got to be a good omen!

Congratulations! I'm glad to hear it's all worked out.
