Just been offered a 6 month contract in Livingstone and the money is to good to turn it down.

Now they want me to start on Monday so won't have time to sort out a house share before then so I need to find a B&B for the first week or two.

I'll be working in Livingston so really looking for west side of the city or anywhere that's 20 mins ride away.

Any suggestions?

There's that place over by West Calder that is run by a homicidal, axe wielding metrosexua,l with a flair for 02.00 hrs arson attacks. Or East Whitburn is a possibility with its monuments to economic deprivation and cultural stagnation.

West Lothian is a lot cheaper than Edinburgh for digs - the further West that you go the cheaper it gets - until you leave West Lothian and end up at Her Majesty's Prison Shotts - where digs are really cheap. Nice easy commute via Headless Cross and Dreich Breich into Livingstone - where the sun has set on the electronics industry.

Decided to go for cheap and cheerful for the first couple off weeks.

Going to take my camping gear with me and find a campsite whilst I look for digs, guessing that once I get onsite for the job might find something available from someone there.

Hmmmm I was wondering why the company in question are paying £125 more a day for this site over their London one, guess I know why now :)

Plan is to just be there Monday to Friday then head out and explore at the weekends.

make hay when the sun shines dude!
To right, the way stuff is at the moment I may have a 3-4 month layoff after this contract. That's why I'm jumping on the bike and going up there, work is far to volatile.

Had a look at Linwater and looks like I might be staying in one of these for a couple of weeks. At least it will be warmer than the tent and has electricity, fridge and kettle. Just need to cook outside.
