Job
It looks like I might have a job. Well, at least one.

The interesting aside is it will be in London, most of the time.

Anyone got any smart ideas as to finding somewhere to live/a room for a couple of nights a week/...

Got a friend in Brixton who could probably put you up for a couple of nights a week for a couple of weeks -- she tends to have a more-or-less open house.

Also -- my sister, who I'll be seeing tomorrow & could talk to (well -- I plan to talk to her anyway, but I could talk to her about this, specifically, if you like) is planning on moving to a bigger house with her boyfriend, which means she will either be selling or renting out her place -- which is a quite nice 1-bedroom flat in Dalston.

Cheers Ian - that all sounds great. Please do mention it. I'm away for a couple of weeks so will be out of circulation but stuff should be crystallizing over the next month.

In principle, money allowing, I'd consider buying or renting.

I will talk with her. She got it via one of those part-buy, part-rent housing associations, whereby she owned more & more of it over the years -- so it might be possible for you to take it on on the same kind of basis. I'll ask.

The one thing it doesn't have is a parking space, though -- but I imagine you'd be doing the sensible thing in London, and only hiring a car when you had an LRP event to get to.

Or... leaving the car in Birmingham :-)

I managed to find another education quango I've not worked for before - doing public policy intelligence gathering. At least until they are closed down by the Tories.

Or alternatively I have a vague-ish offer from a private sector new media house who need a programme manager.

Not quite sure which yet...

Yay!

I don't really have anything terribly useful to say about finding a house, I'm afraid, but since I'm now living in London it'd be nice to meet up occasionally if you're down here.

Fantastic! Seems like ages, probably because, erm, it had been ages.

Assume I'll see you at the Toyland Wedding of the Year though?

I would object to that name (if it wasn't true)
