I have been in London for a couple months now and I have certainly settled in quite nicely to my new London Life. London is such a great city, much better than i thought it would be. It is a beautiful time of the year to be here as well, Christmas is defintelty a special time of the year here. So what can I tell you about my life in London, at the moment I am living in Clapham, its an awesome place to live and we have made some wonderful friends, however we are moving to a new house in Putney which I am very excited about. It is the best house, three stories, 4 double bedrooms, a yard with a fish pond (although we cant have fish as they will freeze to death). There is eight of us moving in, Kitty, Bec, Honey, Robbie, Ed, Phee, Matty and myself. So I feel things in London are going to get a whole lot better.
I have two jobs, during the week I work at an engineering company and of the weekends I work in a furniture show room. I love working in the furniture show room, the people are so nice,I am the token Aussie.
London is one of my favorite cities,I am really happy here, it does help when you have a good circle of friends here though. There is always so much going on and a lot of it is free,which is even better. The buildings are just so amazing as well, they are so old and so beautiful. Its so overwhelming how old their history is when you compare it to our own. The ice skating rinks are going up soon and so are the massive Christmas trees. The weather has not actually been to bad either, although I think it will start to get cold soon. It was actually the warmest Ocotber in history and November looks as though it may be heading the same way. So now the government are really worried about the effects of Global warming and are launching all of these campaigns!
Christmas and New Years are looking to be great, we will be having a Christmas Lunch at our house and then having people over later for a bit of a party. For NYE we are heading up to Scotland to go to the hogmanay street party, which will be good. As for future travels, I am travelling for most of Jan around Europe (Austria, Switzerland, Italy and Bulgaria) then of course going back home for Feb, which I am very excited about!!!
OK well wishing every one a happy festive season and I hope everyone is happy where ever you are in this beautiful world.
Love Always and Forever Abbie
