Our New Flat

Last Wednesday we moved into our new flat in Mitcham.  We are loving it!  We feel really good about our find.  In the end, we got it through a lettings agency, called Leaders.  As it happens, they manage the entire building (three flats) on behalf of the landlord.  So, they handled all the cleanup, changing the gas and electric to our names, re-connecting the power which had been off during the showings, and – they even got us a new bed!

The flat is a one-bedroom on the top-floor of a row house.  We are about three minutes walk from the rail station (Tooting) and about fifteen minutes’ walk from the tube (Tooting Broadway).  It’s working out really well for David to get to school.  We’ve got ourselves set up with groceries and are figuring out how the interesting European radiator system works.

Mark took me to Ikea last week and I got a big haul.  Mark and Sue also lent us a bunch of house stuff that they have doubles of, which was hugely helpful.  We are feeling quite settled in our new place

Come visit us some time!
