Fashion: I’m only happy when it rains With our trip to Scotland just around the corner and the sunshine not *quite* on Leith, we have decided it’s time to invest in a decent waterproof.

Boxing it up

Yesterday marked the start of David packing. August for us is quite a busy month; with planned drinks and birthdays, to a week long trip to Glasgow followed by a weekend in Portsmouth. That means that with the moving date being September 6th, the big day is going to creep up faster than you can…

However, we think it’s a good idea to keep one eye on the property market – the rent prices in the Balham and Tooting area in particular. Imagine our dismay at seeing recent headlines such…
