Living in a cottage in the middle of the wood

Swiss Cottage living

Well not quite, but every time I see signage for Swiss Cottage and St John’s Wood I always put them together in my head.

I haven’t really posted about where I’m living, probably because I’m still trying to find out about it myself.

Currently the boiler isn’t working so everyone is either having baths or very cold shower in the morning (case in point, me). Aside from the pub next door, there is very little night life though it is a very easy area to live in with a giant Sainsburry located closeby. Nevermind the fact that said Sainsburry was closed for the past couple of days making grocery shopping a non event…

Every Wednesday there’s a growers market opposite the library with the famous french crepe stand. She doesn’t like photos unfortunately, so I have to leave her crepes and amazing cheese in your imagination.

Living in London (at last!)

Day in London

I finally have a permanent address in London and I’m incredibly relieved not to have to move my backpack every week or so. Very thrilled to live in Swiss Cottage, with a cinema next door, plenty of Japanese residents and a grocery store a few minutes away, it felt as if I am living in a bigger version of Cremorne.

A few things I do love about it are:

  • There’s a large library closeby
  • Said library is connected to a great gym
  • A huge Sainsbury is 6 minutes away (similar to Coles/Woolworths)
  • I’m on the Jubilee line
  • The kitchen has lots of storage space
  • There are windows everywhere
  • My housemates are sane
