[Saturday 28th February 2015]
I think we mostly stayed around the flat in the daytime, more unpacking etc. I think I spent some of this morning making the back bedroom habitable - putting insulation film and draught excluder tape around the patio doors, and putting up the "thermal" curtains. That, coupled with the fact I'd forgotten we'd actually turned off the radiator in there, made a world of difference. In fact it became quite a nice little cosy room. I think this was probably a turning point - having overcome the frustration of having bought a bed we couldn't sleep in - when I went from finding everything about the new flat just plain awful, to actually starting to think maybe it wasn't all bad.
In the evening we went out for dinner at Franco Manca on Tottenham Court Road with Ben, a friend from university days, who is currently staying in London whilst looking for a new job here. Despite our efforts to get there as early as possible there was still a big queue outside, not long after 6. Erika didn't seem to mind too much though, and we did eventually make it in. As is often the case we couldn't really get her to eat much, and after a while it occurred to me we'd rather unwisely come out without any nappies - which meant I had to rush out with Erika to find a shop to address that. I suppose that gave Ben and Chie a bit more time to catch up though.
