Lofty London Thoughts -- The Big News!

Some of you already know this (or have figured it out from some comments), but my big news is that we're moving to London!! I haven't mentioned it on my blog because we've been waiting on our visas, which will arrive today.  I didn't want to say something and then have to say, uh, just kidding, in case something didn't work out!  We'll be in London by Feb 1.  The move begins this week.  We're heading to Hawaii this weekend (for a conference that Andrew's going to), then we'll go to Atlanta for a week to see family and friends, and then to London.  I haven't had much time to look for apartments this week, but as soon as we get there, we'll be on the hunt.  I hope we can find something decent, with two bedrooms, that we can afford.  It's so expensive there! I'd love to live someplace like this amazing house here--a girl can daydream, right?

wow, congratulations! I live in london and love it.

If you want an affordable area, you should try south east london (i live in brockley). Its much cheaper then other parts of London with deli's and junk markets and nice shops. Its quite 'upcoming' which means a bit scuzzy in some areas, but lots of potential too.

Good luck!

You lucky lady! How exciting for you and hubby. You MUST clue us in on all of the news from over the pond.. I am excited for you. Such adventure and so many wonderful places to see. I have only been in London one time and I loved the people there. I know you will love it and besides it will give your families someplace to vacation....lol

Great news! Welcome to London!
I say South Central, Camberwell Grove if you can afford it, or Peckham if you can't!!! (you'll see the funny side of that if you visit there).

I want to move soon, been looking for a two-bed garden flat, but it is expensive, you can get double the size if you go for places like Catford or Plumstead, crazy!

Thats London though I suppose...

Good luck with the move! X
