Introduce yourself to your next door neighbours, you never know when you’ll need to borrow something.

Bring a decent raincoat, it will rain, a lot. Don’t buy tonnes of crockery and cutlery, you will only probably end up using one plate/bowl and cutlery set. Know your limits when it comes to going out and of course enjoy yourself!
