    I received the replies to enquiries earlier this afternoon and I will be sending the contract out for you to sign tomorrow.

    Huzzah. What's still standing between us and the house now? Just setting the date for completion?

    There's a classic Berliner Currywurst stand outside Schönhauser Allee S- and U-Bahn stations called Alain Snack, which does vegetarian (probably vegan) Bratwurst, as Currywurst or just mit Pommes.

    It's great to feel like an echter Berliner and still get something vegetarian, even if they guy serving does tend to make a jokey comment about you going for the 'weird sausage'.

    First defeat in eight for Town tonight. Against Cardiff of all teams.

    Ours is with Nationwide, though we did it through a broker. The agreement/decision in principle took about half an hour, and the offer about another week after that, after various documents etc were requested.

    I was quite impressed though I wasn't dealing with them directly, lots of updates by text and a detailed mortgage offer in the post immediately after we'd been accepted.

    What are you buying?

    Sounds like a right mess.

    We're still waiting for our solicitor to hear back from vendor's solicitors with the queries which were raised. It seems that every time the ball is in their court everything grinds to a halt. They've probably sent out crucial documents via second class post again.

    Senabel is just around the corner from Simon-Dach-Straße and has great Arabic food, in a city which generally does it really well.

    The chain of Nil Sudanese takeaways is really good too for something a bit different.

    I didn't really rate Vego.

    In Dolores, the burrito bowl meals are amazing, you get just as much filling and wrap, but the wrap is in crispy pieces.

    Sorry to hear that Stevo. But when you finally do move in, imagine how that will feel!

    @Apone, that shower screen looks ace and we will be putting a new bathroom in a place we are trying to buy, if it all goes well. Are you in a rush to get shot of it?

    Red Riding, from a few years ago.

    I remember starting to watch it but not finishing it. Was it disappointing, or was I too busy? Worth revisiting?

    I went to Markthalle Neun at New Year, I had some very good pizza. The brewery is great. My friend works for the German magazine Beef so he had some good hookups there.
