I have a flat. Just in time too, I start work tomorrow. Luckily it's somewhat furnished: I have somewhere to sleep. I ran out of time, so it's not a completely ideal pad (my sole flatmate is a heavy smoker, for one thing), but I'm pretty pleased nevertheless.
I've learnt my lesson, 4.5 days is not enough time to navigate an unfamiliar city, find a flat, and furnish the bedroom. Not enough time for me at least, I imagine a friendlier, less sullen, more car-owning person could probably do better.
