House Hunting

Well considering I was going to write a blog post about the newly released Firefox 3 and how I think it looks like a dogs-ar5e on Windows, I didn’t have enough time to actually get around to doing that today.  Instead I went looking for somewhere to live once the contract runs out on this house.  It’s not a pleasant job traipsing around the estate agents and giving a specific description of what we’re looking for and being given a load of paper with about a million houses on it that you don’t really want to see.  The people are generally helpful and the websites that I went on before looking seemed to offer more in the way of information than the actual people in the agencies did.  The best place that I saw a flat would have to be at the marina – in the place that I said about aaages ago.

The flats there are just as awesome as I expected, and even though I only looked at the ground floor flats, they were still utterly immaculate and just awesome.  If I get a job in Swansea, I am seriously going to consider living there.  I mean I haven’t spent all of this money on a degree to live in a shitty house for another 10 years.  I want to enjoy my life, and if that means spending a bit more money and enjoying where I live then I don’t really mind.  I don’t have the money or the opportunity to get onto the property ladder just yet, so why not?  But I need to get a job first.  Heard back from one of those I applied to yesterday, only for them to tell me that the position had already been filled. 😦

Oh and I can cross off going to Holbrooks – went there with Rich today for some lunch.  Man, I love it in that cafe!

… and I went to Elmo’s in the evening to watch National Treasha – which is, like the sequal, a very non-American telling of their own history, and very watchable from a British point of view.
