Just as Delmonti moves into Addlestone, I am moving out.
Sorry Mr D, it's nothing personal. In fact, it's evidence that the area is becoming more posh and it's making me uncomfortable!
In approximately 24 hours time, my lovely young wife and I will become homeowners again, after a few years on the grubby slopes of Mount Rental.
Off to sunny Aldershot in Hampshire.
From now on it's our problem if the gas boiler stops working or the windows fall out. On the other hand we're also free to redecorate, put up shelves and have pets if the mood takes us.
I know which I prefer.
The day we move will be easier than the last 3 or 4 weeks. I've gradually whittled my 40-item to-do list down to something manageable (while working my new job and starting rehearsals for our latest play!) and most of the remaining items can probably wait until we've moved.
