In Photos: Moving to London

London

Five weeks ago I moved back to London full time for the first time since the summer when I worked at the Olympics. It’s been exciting to be living in a brand new part of the city (I’m southwest this time in East Sheen, near Richmond) and I’ve just about got past the ‘Holy what?!‘ moment of seeing just how much more expensive London is to live in than my previous home in Glasgow.

I’ve been out and about in London a fair bit, picking up temp events work all over the city before starting a role at the Rugby World Cup in January. Here’s a selection of pics I’ve taken so far:

  1. Great post reminding me of many of the reasons why I love London! I saw Lady Antebellum at Hyde Park a few years ago – they’re just fabulous and I had no idea they were performing at Brooklyn Bowl or I’d have definitely tried to go – it’s the right side of London for me too! Must have been a good show!
