The last 2 months have been very hectic – I moved flat from Marchmont to the West End of Edinburgh. Gone is studentville and a flat with a ratio of 3 computers per person and a complicated internet system! Welcome to the West End where the internet works by just clicking in the cat5 to the router! Hooray for thermostat controlled heating! The new flat is wonderful – wooden floors, original working window shutters, own front door, private garden with BBQ, garden furniture and shed, huge rooms with stylish furniture, fantastic fully-fitted kitchen. I’m sure all this is perfectly mundane to most but a total dream having come from student accommodation! I have also finished my probation at work and am now a fully fledged employee, so thus the transition from student to young professional is complete! I have even filled in my pension plan. Hoorah!
Tomorrow I am attempting to get to London by train – BA kindly told me I might as well cancel my flight and gave me a full refund. On Thursday my family and I attempt to go to Belgium for Christmas by car/Le Shuttle, and on boxing day Steven and I attempt to go to Amsterdam by train. Hopefully we won’t get stuck there as I am working the day after we fly back to Edinburgh. The blog will return in January!
