On the Hunt in the Dark of Day

I feel like such a terrible blogger lately with so little posting going on. We've been busy looking at apartments so I haven't had much to write about. Apartment hunting is not very interesting (not in our price range anyway), and I can assure you that you wouldn't want to see pictures from 95% of what we've seen. It would depress you. You don't get a whole lot of square footage or quality for your money in London. But then again it's London. It has so much to offer that it doesn't really matter, does it? Unfortunately to me it does. I can't just live anywhere, in any old place. I'm a bit picky. Today on the way home from Battersea (where we've most recently been looking) we crossed the Westminster Bridge and I took this picture. When it is grey here, it is soooo grey, like soot! I get tired of the gloomy grey, but sometimes it does make for a good moody picture. On the bright side, we may have found a place today. We shall see.

Hey sweet girl, what a gorgeous photograph!!! (You do know that you have a knack for photography, right?) Don't worry, all things work together for good and I know you'll find the perfect place that you all are supposed to be in. Good things are always. just. around. the corner! I miss you....even though you were all the way on the other side of the country...now you're on the other side of the ocean!!!! Wishing you all the best Leigh....hugs and love, Dawn

Lovely picture.
And, like you, I couldn´t just live anywhere. I´m picky too. I think it´s only good to be. I´ll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I am, like you a bit picky, and the gloom can get to you, although that picture is beautiful and the buildings are elegant and ancient..wish we had more buildings like that in every town to make the sooty grey more moody and not dreadfully dreary.
Anxious to see your new place.

Fingers crossed you find the perfect place--and can't wait to see you make it your own! Your photo and description capture London so perfectly--that's just how I remember it (sooty/moody!)from my visit, oh, 20 years ago!

I really do understand about not being able to live just anywhere....which is why on my last flat search here 9 month ago, I saw 28 apartments- ugh, the drudgery. It's hard to find that combination of aesthetics and space in the right price range in this city! I so feel your pain. I hope you find something you like very soon!

I hope that you find something soon, something you love. I agree, it would be difficult to live someplace you didn't like. I love this moody picture!!
