<big sigh of relief>
Yesterday I found a place to move into. Only had 1 week left to find something so was starting to get stressed! It's quite cool, reasonably priced room sharing a place with 2 others, in central city (only 5-10mins walk from all the bars ), in a 1950s art deco apartment block! (not sure how i feel about art deco but hey I can't see it from inside the building). It's a cool area too, lots of old buildings and big trees, on a hillside, close to everything.
Such a relief to have it sorted!
