I'm coming down on the coach next week, with the plan to look round, try and find a place to live, and a job.. Then hopefully I can nip back up north, and my Daddy's giving me a lift back down with all my stuff..

So.. redface um.. is there any really nice person in the area who would have a spare sofa for a day or two or could act as a sort of 'native guide'?
It's just I don't really know where I'm going, and though there's quite a few house shares and things available, I really don't want to agree to move in somewhere without going to have a proper look.. I'm not sure what areas are good, or dodgy, or hard to get to..

I would really appreciate it! smile And I can buy you a beer or two.. or three..

Wonderful... A choice between Chenobyl and Baghdad...

You poor poor thing... Hopefully going native with the hippies wont scare you off... Really Bristle's not that bad... We have a few almost civilised folk as well. biggrin

Oi sy! dont make me come up there and break your other leg for ya! besides you havnt a leg to stand on (no pun intended) with the mess your sofa pit has created.



OK, i admit ours has something of a 'lived in' feel about it but we do have a juggling studio biggrin and Tim just tidied cos he finished making his skate ramp so tongue



Oli's isnt normally that bad either TBF, just last time we were round there the floor still had a hangover.

Well.. if you can manage a more chaotic house than the one I stayed in in Brisbane (note to self.. remember to distinguish the 'bane' and 'tol'..)- which for a few days had 14 randoms, 6 residents in a 5 bedroom house.. I wound up in the space under the shed, which I had to share with a bush turkey
ubblol
And thanks everyone for the welcome! *bounce* I'm getting excited now!

Bleh.. just an update on this- I *thought* I had a house sorted, but they called my back a bit later and said actually, someone else got it.

Which is a bit odd as the ad's turned up again on gumtree this morning, a week later..

And no my mother's poking me with a stick and saying they want the bathroom back to themselves, so.. umm.. is there any chance of a repeat sofa theft? redface

I'll hopefully be a bit better organised this time, and get houses lined up to look at *before* I go down.. so it really should just be a few days..?

I know it's pretty damn cheeky.. And this time I *will* remember to buy beer.
