grown up stuff..

So, house hunting and things was T-I-R-I-N-G yesterday!

First we went to the Arnolfini because I saw an interesting book in the window, and ended up buying a few really awesome magazine things. They're absolutely lovely, the sort of thing I hope to end up doing really, amongst other things.

Then we went on a hunt for Drake House I think it was. We found it eventually and I decided instantly that I didn't want to live there as it was on a really busy road and it was soooo noisy.
Then we had another walk to find another one I can't remember what it was called but it was on Bond Street which is RIDICULOUSLY busy. I mean, I want to live in Bristol and have that city experience after living in a village my whole life, but I don't want to walk outside and instantly be hit by looooads of traffic and fumes and building sites! It's just scary. So that's off the list too.

We went up to Frenchay to get Beth, and on the way went through this part of Bristol that seemed like a little village! It was so cute. Anyway then we went down to the area Beth was thinking of getting a house - Ashley Down/Horfields. Both areas are really nice, and we found St. Andrews and Montpelier are absolutely awesome as well, and close to a main bus route and closer to the city centre as well.

Then we found Culver House after a lot of searching and some incredible map reading by meeee. And it looks like it could be a contender. Super close to the city centre, but tucked away so it's not really overwhelming. On Park Street as well which is a really nice area. Sort of leaning towards this at the moment because it's so convenient for everything, no need to get taxis home! Aaaaand I won't have to pay for it over the summer which I probably would for a house. And it's cheap too, like £63 a week I think! Bargain!

Probably be going up again some time soon to look inside Culver House and hopefully some houses tooooo!
Need to do a lottttttttttt of thinking and investigating!

Eeeeeek! I feel so grown up.




In other news, I am making another book, and it's going really well so far. It's pretty small, but niceeee. I will probably post scans later.
