Thanks for the Flat-Hunting Mojo, My Friends!

Let me tell you, I wish I had been taking notes about some of the 513 places I've viewed so far so that I could string them together into a stand-up routine (Hmm...maybe I will). The good thing is, it makes the fact that I've finally found a place that much more rewarding.

I viewed this particular flat last night after class. When I finally got home to check my email, I found the offer sitting in my inbox. The only real downside is that the room is unfurnished, so I have to buy a bed. It's no big thing, especially when it's in a cool part of town, has a good sized kitchen, two living spaces (one of which could probably be made into a dining area, but I'm perfectly happy with the drum kit that's sitting in there), broadband, and a small garden in the back. It's tidy, but comfortable, and the new flatmates are a guy (Gavin) and a girl (Claire) who are both in their early 30s and both artists. Gavin is a graphic designer who just opened his own gallery in Stoke Newington, and Claire is an up-and-coming videographer/filmmaker. Yay! I'll post pictures as soon as I give the landlady my deposit and move in. That's supposed to happen on Saturday. In the meantime, here's the map. It's the first road west of/parallel to Albion Rd., near where Newington Green Rd, Albion Rd, and Green Lanes intersect.
