I've Moved

At last, around 6 months after first looking for a new house we’ve finally moved. Even better, by the time I set-up the PC (a whole 4 days after moving!) broadband had been installed. I only needed 3 minutes of dial-up to get my new ADSL username etc and I was away. Kudos to Plusnet.

As for the house – superb – wish I’d done it years ago, but then I wouldn’t have had enough money to do it years ago. What I can’t believe is just how much there is to do in the house. Small jobs take forever. And I’m shit at DIY, although I’ve just subscribed to the uk.diy newsgroup…..as if that will help.

Even after a week I’m still surrounded by brown boxes – it’s going to take quite a while before we’re fully unpacked – months even! But I’m pleased with the chaos and the new house especially compared to the old place!

Kilroy

The BCC should do the decent thing – sack him – after his outburst on Arabs. This is nothing but racist stereotyping and he should be suitably punished.

Mars Rover

Way cool – the first pictures from the Mars Rover are superb. Just hope the rover moves OK after the weekend.

Less than 2 weeks to go

Well….things are moving apace. Two weeks from now I’ll be in my new house. Two weeks from now I’ll have no broadband! Bugger. I can only order BB once my new phone line is enabled, then it will be up to 10 days before BB is setup. Ouch. Back to dial-up.

But the mortgage is sorted, new insurance dealt with, removal firm booked, sixty (yep 60) fucking boxes arrived from Pickfords yesterday – I’ve only got a two bedroomed flat – I’m not that bad a hoarder. Still got utilities to fix and tons to pack (not 60 boxes worth though).

But I can’t wait to move.
