So far so good.... Wish me luck.....

We are on track.... I think.  All jobs done, packing done bar the last things you need - kettle bed linen, clothes that are still drying on the radiators/clothes horse.

I need to take readings for gas and electricity tomorrow and ring the  solicitors re keys etc etc

Biggles has offered to remain behind and give a final hoover round etc etc and a check that nothing has been left behind. Bless hime
Oh yes have one set of curtains to take down tomorrow and a lamp shade to remove.

Once I am in will do the following:

Council tax
post office - redirection
tv licence
driving licence
mums bank details etc etc - I am power of attorney for her including tax man!!! and letting agent for her house that she rents out
Mums Care home
Weeny girls bank details
Credit cards - bah bah bah
Survey companies
insurance companies - life to cancel/rearrange as no house to pay for, ad contents
Car insurance

Can you think of anything else????

Saturday I shall shop for food for christmas/pick up what I need.

Hopefully I have the following arranged for Thursday

Cooker - delivery
Garden box delivery
TV Aeriel Chap  - Sky are evil!!! They cut your cables to your aeriel when they remove Sky to encourage you to sign up for a TV package you don't want.

I need to purchase:

Cat Flap - absolutely essential for pusskins
Cutain poles x 5 - required to stop heat from escaping!
Wardrobe storage clothes rail thing - only one for me. otherwise it will be chaos!
Lamp Shade - paper ones - 3 I think - will check- they are cheap and cheerful

Also I will be able to use Biggles Dongle wotsit!!! No electrical death however I will miss BT vision and being able to record.

I will acquire a carpet for my bedroom in time adn other items via Freecycle!
