Someone posted this on facebook and it made me think "yes!".
A few days ago I was in a halfway dingy bed and breakfast without prospect of a home (I moved to Glasgow and it is a nightmare finding accomodation such short time before university starts). The weather was bad. I had to move out of the bed and breakfast today and had nowhere to go. I don't know a soul and bed and breakfasts were full.
But I found an awesome person to couchshare at [yes, couchsharing- I raved about it a couple of weeks ago], I found a homely flat to move into in two weeks and I am drinking a Scottish beer. So I am happy as a pig in shit.
