My New Flat

Well, it might not have a TV, microwave, cable, internet, vacuum, closets (ok, I’ll stop now)….but hey, I do have a new flat! It’s a cute two-bedroom on a nice residential street of Notting Hill. Of course by American standards, it has some quirks*, but all in all, I think I’ll be happy here.

*Quirks include a dorm room sized fridge, washer in the kitchen, no dryer (which means I currently have a drying rack covered in underwear in my kitchen too), the infamous plugless bathroom, and a very non-open floor plan (even the kitchen is a 4-walled room).

I was told that Comcast is a dream compared to English cable and internet companies. I don't know how the words Comcast and dream could be uttered in the same sentence but I decided to think positive thoughts as I compared two providers...British Telecom and Virgin.  Virgin offered installation on Christmas Eve and BT on New Year's Eve. Brilliant.  So it looks like I'll be TV-less and internet-less until the new year. Wow, it's going to be a quiet December.

I haven't taken any pictures of the flat yet, but I promise I will and when I do I’ll post them for you. For now, here’s one of the outside that I stole off Google Street View. I’m on the second floor just inside the little white balcony.
