My new home

24 02 2009

So I am feeling a little more settled into the Midlands now – I have somewhere to live.  It’s in a suburb called Acock’s Green (yeah, so I giggle too everytime I say/write it…). I have an attic to myself in a four bedroom house. Here is a roughly 360 degree tour of it…

My Room

The rest of the house is shared with a guy of about the same age as me with metal hair, t-shirt and goatee and these two retired dudes in thier 60’s. Interesting combo, but everyone is quite nice, and the place is relatively quiet and well connected to public transport. Unfortunately no internet connection as yet – but Im working on it! Hopefully I’ll be back in the land of Skype and Facebook soon! never fear my dear friends and family!!!

Anyway – I found these couple of pictures of Solihull on my camera too, so might as well post them. The first is the church which was directly opposite the hotel I was staying in. Its very pretty but damn those stupid bells are loud – and why do they need to be rung continuously for over an hour every time they start up. urgh… at least I utilised my weekends as there was no danger of me sleeping in?

Solihull Church
The next picture is a statue in the main square at Solihull shopping centre – its an ordinary statue, but I must say I do like the addition of the Macca’s drink and the cigarette. Made me laugh anyway…

Hey Loz … Cool place! Very you, and yes it is good to hear that you are not homeless!
Can you please email me your new address as well, but make sure it is 100% accurate, as last time I sent you something (Christmas present) you never got back to me, so I assume you never recieved it???
Anyway, I hope you are loving your new house and housemates! Keep having fun and keeping us updated!
Talk soon,
