Yesterday's packing went smoothly enough that by the end of the day our life was contained in a series of tessellating boxes. Theses boxes are currently being carried out by a series of big strong men and loaded into the two vans. At the rate they are going we should be able to make a move by lunchtime and start the whole unpacking/un-boxing process.
Fliss and I picked up the keys yesterday and checked out what we had brought. It obviously looks a little more spartan now the previous owners have removed all the furniture and pictures but we were still feeling good about the purchase (as you would hope!). One thing we do need to sort out quickly though is getting the key charged electricity meter replaced with a normal one. I have my fingers crossed that Virgin will actually turn up tomorrow to fit the broadband.
