Grange Walk looks great - but it is a bit far away for my liking. 10 Park Street is the one I would be after...

A couple of weeks ago it was on the market for 375k (or something like that). I wonder why it's now going to auction? But I still think we should club together for the big house. It has 5 bedrooms - so that's potentially 10 of us putting in 100k each - any takers?

Just been to see it - no queues! (Unlike the gherkin - arrived at 10am to find several thousand people - no exaggeration - already there.) It is a pleasantly lived-in house, unlike 1-4 Swan Mead which is (in my opinion) unbearably soulless - I do love space, light and minimalism, but this is too characterless.

10 people sharing a house? Cleaning duties would at least come round infrequently, but what would the bathroom queue be like?

Off to see some more buildings and a bit of Thames Festival now - see you all at the 'firing on the foreshore' tonight?

First you want to marry Maurits inorder to get your hands of his flat, and then you suggest ten sharing.

Just how badly do you want to get on the property ladder.

Perhaps time for general advice to the forum not to invite you round - you might want to move in.

Incidently you don't give pairings. You and Maurits, Birdie and Matchmaker. Roadrunner is already spoken for. RedBus and Siduhe? Tharg with Ivanhoe's bearded wife? That probably leaves TUMJ with Michael (spelling is not my strong point) Salkeid or Rabbie. And Harriet waiting for the postman. My choice is Deidre.

I think the hirsute Mrs I ought to share with Mr I. I might be prepared to pitch in with barkyhead, although his 20-a-day pork pie habit tends to leave a lot of crumbs in the bed.

I went to see the Gherkin queue too, I was impressed by its sinuous nature and how it reflected all of humanity and also expressed the pointlessness of existence. Just imagine how fed up people were when they got to the front and found they had not been in the London Dungeon queue.

What impressed me was how all those people could look so happy, with what was obviously going to be several hours wait in front of them.

There was almost a queue of people looking at the queue.

Centaur St was really interesting.

David M. Anderson - I love your SOH, was LOL, but are you American? Feel like there should be a III at the end of your name...**??**!!
