On Monday I went up to Manchester for a couple of days to find a house and explore the area and stuff. I’m pleased to report that I only got a tiny bit lost a couple of times and I FOUND A HOUSE! A lovely big Victorian house in a lovely area with lovely housemates. I’m thrilled that I’ve finally managed to get accommodation sorted as I was starting to get a bit jumpy about the fact that work starts in under two weeks’ time and I still needed a room. Thankfully it’s all sorted and I have got a date for moving back up north and starting my new life as a librarian (hooray!).
I also managed to work out how to get to work from the house, what my work looks like (sort of – not entirely sure which building it’s in) and where everything is in relation to the shops. It’s all coming together nicely, and now I can sit back, relax and look forward to September.
