Moving Flat pt III: Aftermath

Filed under: Uncategorized — ealing @ 7:17 pm

It took four days, two of them off work, to get moved from Ealing to Surrey Quays. My schoolboy error was to hire a large car rather than a large van. The amount of time it takes to drive across London is ridiculous, and I would have been much better off taking a vehicle that could hold everything I wanted to move, and making only one trip.

Freecycle is a great thing for getting rid of unwanted stuff quickly without sending it to landfill. Friends who will help you move are invaluable. Being offline at home for any length of time is a serious problem. Packing for congresses while still living out of boxes is a pain. I really like my new place, but I’ll like it a lot more in a week or so when it’s properly organised.
