Posted:Hi guys,

I'm due to start work experience for Bloomsbury publishers in May and i was wondering if anybody would be incredibly kind to me and lend me sofa or floor space for the odd night? Otherwise i will have a 4 hour commute each day from Oxford and i think that would kill me! Also if you know of any cheap/safe/clean B&B's, hostels or hotels, any and all info is very muchly appreciated!

Thankyou londoners hug

Posted:The boys and myself where I live were thinking about getting a mattress so we could have people stay over (you know those damn drunken parties where everyone crashes....

Let me talk to the boys and see if they would be okay with it but I see no problems with you being able to crash in our lounge for a couple of nights if you would like.

Posted:Jo - unfortunately im more likely to pelt JK Rowling with rotten tomatoes and shout at her for unslaving the world with Potter Madness than ask for her autograph... but i'll try! smile

Medusa, that would be brilliant, lots of hugs and cookies to you, where abouts in london are you?

Posted:Yay! Well let me know what days you want at my little abode....when will you be coming to London?

You can catch a train close to where I live straight into waterloo (six stops I think it is maybe five) and then everything is pretty close from there....
