Househunters International Part Two

Wow, what a cliffhanger, eh? I went from "We'll be right back after this commercial break" to waiting as long as in between "Sopranos" seasons. Well, maybe not that long. Previously, on The Househunting Adventures of Brigid and David, we were down to two flats of interest. The first was a bright, sunny 2-bedroom, about two miles from the University and on the top floor. The second was a much-less-nice 1-bedroom right on the Royal Mile, steps from the park, but with a horrid kitchen. Which did we choose?

We tried to get the crappy Royal Mile flat, thinking we would just be here a year and why not be crazy and live in the noisy Times Square of Scotland? Then the landlord didn't answer her phone, and in the time it took for her to eventually call us back, we changed our minds and took Flat #1.

We haven't regretted it for a minute, even when we descend 60 stairs each time we leave and when David can't just pop home for lunch during the schoolweek. The area is lovely, and if we don't go broke from daily trips to the cheesemonger, we will be quite happy here. But really, I'd be happy anywhere as long as David is here (with his Texas flag) ... awwww....


  1. Every time I see that flag, I think, "I need a Texas flag."

  2. It's a blanket, a toga, and a tablecloth all in one. Texans are so resourceful! Get thee one (a flag, not a Texan).
