Well it’s official. I have now been in London for three years.
Me and the girl spent our first year living in a studio flat near Euston Station where we were gently rocked to sleep and woken up every day by the rumble of the tube.
Our days were spent looking for work and watching our bank balances quickly deplete while every second report on the evening news was about the Global Financial Crisis.
Year two and three have been much better since we moved to our lovely little flat in Kilburn and found our feet work wise.
We’ve settled into London now, have some London friends (which includes plenty of Aussie expats) and feel much more positive about the future.
2012 also marks the year that I finally swapped this:

I haven’t found a new favourite game on my 4S yet.
I’m happy to now be a part of the smart phone generation and to say that with each passing day London is feeling more and more like home, although I do have to pinch myself on both counts sometimes.
