Whew, seven more days to my departure and I FINALLY secured my accommodation. I didn’t even apply for this Hall in the first place … because there are carpets in the rooms and I absolutely can’t stand carpets! So it was quite a shocker when the offer came through email.
I took 2 days to really convince myself that I can accept the carpets. And that was after I considered that the location is great, rent is cheap (for the location at least) and it’s only for 1 year. But what really sealed the deal was when I discovered there’s a Chatime outlet just 500m away! That’s such a frivolous decision breaker but now I won’t be missing bubble tea at all when I’m London =)
Now that accommodation is settled, I’ll have to quickly find a primary school for T. My school is 2km away from the Hall and I’ll try to get him into a school that’s also within 1 – 2km from the Hall. If it all works out, we’ll be walking everyday and there’s no need to spend money on public transport in London.
