Don't Eat Mints and walk outside on a cold day

One street up from Andrew's flat in Belsize Park. 

Negotiated the tube from Heathrow to a warm house in Belsize Park, the first blessing, so much better than staying in some anonymous room in London.  We have started to look for a one bedroom apartment, after spending a few days looking for flats.  It seems the only way to get something will be to lift the price we are prepared to pay.  So to buy some time  I followed up on a room share in Shoreditch. It turned out to be a great space over looking city rooftops, right in Zone 1 (the middle of London).

Andrew and Claire made our transition to the London really easy.  We have been to a couple of great pubs, below is the Hollybush in Hampstead. The our first Sunday arvo was spent at the Greater Union across town in Westbourne Grove. Second lesson - remember tube lines tend to go down over the weekend due to maintenance work and you are likely to catch a bus, which was fine if you have an hour to get to where your are going, but you do get to see the suburbs from the front of a double decker bus which is fun.

Noran and Claire

Still haven't bought a warm jacket but am actively looking, same goes for work. Have been to Michael Page, met up with a recommended contact and tomorrow have a follow-up meeting with another recruiter.

Now we are settled in Shoreditch for a few weeks I can really start looking for work.

More tomorrow.
