Well, I'm no longer a Londoner.
I'll be back on Sunday night though as I'm going to the old house to take some bits to the dump and check it's all clean. Then it's off to work for my final four weeks.
The new flat I'd massive. I fit all the boxes in my room and still have access to my bed and en suite ;p
Our truck did get held up for 90 mins though as it was stopped and weighed and found to be over it's weight limit. They got fined £1000 and then had to wait to be escorted the final 3 miles. If they'd be further out they'd have needed to get an additional truck to come and redistribute the weight.
This does mean that I now know that I have about a ton of stuff - in the literal sense as well as the figurative.
Anyway, having not eaten since a bacon roll for brekkie I'm now going to go and explore the town/city for something to eat.
Then shower and then very possibly an early night as I kipped for about 2 hours last night on the sofa (my bed was covered in boxes).

Does this mean that your move just cost you an extra £1000?

Re: Weight
Luckily not. I would have been responsible fir any parking tickets but not a fine due to the weight. The owner of the company had visited the house and gone through everything that was being taken and had decided upon the van type. He underestimated so it was a company problem as opposed to mine. They should have really used two vehicles to move me (although that would have cost me more).
So, thankfully, my costs haven't shot up by another £1000.

Re: Weight
Ouch, yes that woulda been bad. I just moved into a new place. For some reason the heater was broken and going full blast. Since it's winter, it was kinda nice, but I really didn't need that kinda heat *ALL* the time! So I got the caretaker to replace the thermostat and the part of the heater that it controls. $1300! Ouch! Okay, *maybe* I don't mind the heat so much. It's not like I'm really paying for it. Time to crawl into a hole and whimper for a bit.
