Congrats drummy, but up here Friday is going to be the hottest day we've had in months - so if it's the same where you are I can't help but feel it's going to be a rough day for you.

It's allegedly going to be 26°.

Good thanks.

Had everything on the van by 10am, completed around 11:30, got the keys about 30 minutes later.

Spent the rest of the day trying to put things in roughly the right place. Got most of it done, most of what is left needs to go in the loft which I need to be ture into tomorrow to board.

9/10

Move update!

Everything is coming along nicely. One room is being used to store all of the boxes that need to go into the loft whilst I insulate and board it. Cleaners are in because everything here was filthy, floors are all wooden or tile and walking around barefoot for an hour left us with black feet. Playroom (don't you dare, it's for my daughter) is all set up, living area is all set up, kitchen and bedrooms too. Sky engineer is here installing our TV service, internet was also supposed to be today but the line that is currently here needs replacing so I've still got to wait a couple of weeks. Currently tethering my work laptop to my phone for internet. 8-)

Garden needs some work as there is a lot of overgrown foliage. Neighbour had a massive thorn bush which had overlapped our fence quite substantially so I clipped that back immediately.

It's amazing what this move has done for my mental health.

Glad it's going well Drummy.

I know what you mean about mental health, I felt a big raise in my mood when I saw what the lady upstairs put her flat on the market for. It gives me hope that it will be possible to move somewhere nice soon.

Yes the mental health thing is massive. We used to have to keep our flat bedroom window closed due to being above the main door, which would have people smoking weed and being noisey all the time. Constant noise from above. Always worrying about my car as the little peep show scrotes used to use it as an ash tray and sit on the bonnet, setting the alarm off.

The first night in our house was totally silent, not a single noise from anywhere. When we woke up that next morning there was the most amazing sunset of our new view. It was like being on holiday.

Clue me in, what is preventing you from moving at the moment?

How has your neighbour finalised things with the leaseholder bastards?

She never said why she's moving, just that she has to.

She's just going to pay them so she can get out.

I'm still waiting for the Property Ombudsman so am waiting for their judgement and for upstairs to sell so I have a really good idea of price.

If these flats are hard to sell or her estate agent has massively overvalued then I might still be stuck.
