Finally seem to be making a move towards leaving this dreadful city. Renting market is slow, but will hopefully find somewhere suitable within a couple of months. I can't wait!
Update: found a nice 4-bed detached in rural Wales, near a decent school and about 2 hours from here. Have put in the application, just waiting to hear back on that, if all goes according to plan we should be out of here and in there by mid-October.... just need to make sure that internet is on asap after the move since my job requires it.
Update: Got the green light on the application, paid the deposit/first month's rent (ouch), lease starts on the 9th October, hiring a truck on the 10th. Looks like I may be without internet for a week, which sucks, but I suppose I'll be busy unpacking and setting up anyway
