Moving Flat pt IV: Settling

Filed under: Uncategorized — ealing @ 1:17 pm

The amount of local knowledge needed to live a relatively pain-free existence is substantial.

I know nothing about Surrey Quays, and unlike Ealing, it doesn’t have an obvious main drag on which everything can be found.

I found a dry cleaner, but what I can’t find is someone who will cut my hair. Now, I don’t mind if it’s called a barber or a hairdresser or a unisex salon. I just want it to employ someone competent with scissors and razors. They should also be open when I arrive. I haven’t yet found this combination, and it’s a pain.

On the other hand, I have found a couple of pubs and a dry cleaner. The supermarket eight minutes away is open 24 hours a day, Sundays excepted. Usable buses are relatively frequent, except for the night buses, which are only twice an hour from Trafalgar Square. I just need to find a newsagent and a hairdresser, and I’ll be sorted.
