This is just a very quick update, since I'm currently at work (trying to get out, as it's end of workday here at 5:30pm... woohoo!).
Finally moved into our new flat - 2 bedroom place, in a very nice area, about a 5 minute walk away from the Tube (London Underground). Only a few snags... one being that our washing machine does not work (and we have about two weeks worth of laundry to do... or we'll have to start coming into work wearing garbage bags if we can't find a laundromat soon...). Still trying to get BASIC furniture into our new flat - like shelves in the bathroom, and a towel rack... you know. Things that should already be there...
Trying desperately hard to get some kind of Internet connection, but we have to wait a week or two just to get a phone line connected... don't even ask. We are living in a non-cable area, apparently. So I'm using work's Internet right now. One of only 3 web machines here. Everything is very secure here and all, so that studio info can't get to the outside world.
As soon as we have our own net connection, I will make another update.
