Since May, I've been waiting to move into my new apartment. That doesn't mean I've been living rough, but that does mean my belongings have been packed into boxes and bags, and split between my home in Bath, and my temporary residency in Notting Hill. It's really hard to find anything.

An up-side to the situation is that I've had a great-fun time living in Notting Hill, a part of London I never would have seen myself living in otherwise. I house sat for a friend whilst she was having a jolly in a camper van halfway across the world, and enjoyed adopting some new local shops, exploring the area, and walking through Holland or Hyde park whenever the weather encouraged me to. It was good strange but strange all the same living without my local amenities, my neighbourhood friends, familiar transport routes and my local fresh vegetable store, the owners of which I'd become pretty friendly with (by friendly, I mean a bit of fruit banter and a 10p discount here and there).
