I'm moving in with Chris and Jenny!

I bought tickets to London last night. I'm flying out in October. I'm stupid excited for the trip.

I'm not sure if Chris knows this, but his freshly waxed betrothed has already offered to let me sleep on their couch. As such, I have decided that I will spend a week at their house, raiding their fridge and underwear drawers while they are at work. At night I will sneak into their bedroom and give Chris the earwig treatment. I hope they have satellite TV.

I'm kidding, but the offer of couch lodging has probably been rescinded, anyway.

Actually, most of my time will be spent in Cymru, attempting to ingratiate myself with the locals -- specifically those at Cardiff University's School of Welsh. I will also be getting a chance to hear my friend Shiona sing and perhaps watching Wales lose to Azerbaijan (hey, I'm a realist).

The offer quite definitely stands; indeed, I suggested as much to the young lady myself. You'd be most welcome.

Only one problem: at the moment, we have no TV as we get an appalling reception. Trying to remedy this, but not having much luck.

It is a damn comfy couch. And earwig free, I think, though no guarantee is given.

Ooh, I'm so envious that you're going to London. Please have a big Toffee Crisp for me. Mmm, chocolatey!

Jenny said...


That is so very exciting!

No telly but free wireless broadband internet and a unique opportunity to be verbally abused by bus drivers!

I will be very disappointed now if you decide not to come and stay with some random strangers you met on the internet.


PS: I feel it is my duty to warn you that New Cross is scummy, even if I am quite inexplicably attached to it. Good bus links and excellent Sainsburys, though.

I'd like to reiterate at this point that it's not just a comfy couch, it's a fully sprung-mattressed bed with machine washable slipcover. If you don't mind.

Chris Cope said...

Ooooh, luxury accomodation!

Astrid said...

Wow, I hope you will still be able to get out of your Ikea-bed every day at Chris & Jenny's!!!

An inviting sofa at day-time and a comfortable bed at night-time with a variety of slipcovers... That's like the bed everyone dreams of in their normal, boring beds!

Jenny said...

Astrid, you're so right!

It really is an innovation in bed design.

We currently have the 'charcoal' slipcover.
