well its been over a year since I last posted but better late than never ;)
Alot has happened in the last year and a bit but for now lets just think of the present.
I have just moved to London and am about to start a new job on Monday. The flat I have moved into kind of reminds me of a holiday hotel.
There is constantly music playing with multiple genres and volumes colliding to create an intresting symphony of noise. I can hear from the balcony many languages and as of yet have overheard loud conversations in Hebrew, Indian, Polish, what i think is Swahli, Arabic, and Russian but no English ones yet.
It maybe because its the summer holidays but untill about midnight there are kids playing up and down the street which I find both life affirming and depressing at the same time.
Its not as if I have felt in danger at anypoint but the change from living in the quiet and upmarket Cardiff Bay to East London is a shock especcialy when buffered by a month living back in Hertfordshire in the middle of a field!
Change is good for the soul but I'm nervous about the new job, living in London, and being with out the support network I had in Cardiff. But having said all that if things work out well I can see myself being happy here which I have not truly been for a long time.
