First things first: James got the job at the Tower of London.
We found out yesterday. Flailed a lot. Made giddy phone-calls, etc.

*deep breath*

He has to start on 11 October.

Our current lease here in Leeds isn't up till 22 December.

This leaves us with a situation where he'll have to move down ahead of me and stay with a friend of ours: or at least he's pretty sure he'll be able to crash with a friend of ours. I'd follow in early December, along with the rest of our stuff. Now, of course I'd be going down for a couple of interim visits to help him in our search for a flat, etc., but mostly we're worried about him having a place to crash in the interim. As I said, we're pretty sure we know a friend who's willing, but we're always over-cautious and thought we'd put out feelers for potential back-up people with couches, spare rooms, etc. (HE WOULD CHIP IN FOR EXPENSES, NO QUESTION!) He only needs a place for October and November; we'd be looking to get into a flat of our own as soon as December arrives.

So, in short: looks like he has a place to stay for two months, but if that falls through, we're seeking back-ups. Or people who know of super-cheap accommodation that's available immediately (i.e. in the range of £400 or less per month) and on a short-term basis.

Hey, I heard the good news! How exciting to be moving to London! Want a houseguest? ;) I'm so excited for you and James. **and think of all the awesome consignment shops you'll get to check out!** hee hee.

You know, I've never really poked into charity or consignment shops in London; I think most trips down there have always been too rushed, and they've never taken me to the right parts of town. Well, no, I've been through a few charity shops in Camden...

Of course you can come visit. ANY TIME AT ALL. You're one of the people I really lament being an ocean away; I wish I could hang out with you all the time. If we ever ended up in the Chicago area, I don't doubt that would happen ;)
