I Have Moved
#1
Urgghhh what a mission it was yesterday, 1 van and 3 of us to get all of our shit in.

Still need to setup broadband there and sort out all the utility crap. Im unpacked and all setlled in my room, my bike hasnt taken place in its allocated slot in the dining room but that will come, also still got to move all my kitesurf gear in.

Anybody have any engenious ideas about how to get a 7ft 3 seater sofa through a 6,8 door. No matter how hard we treid or what angle it wouldnt go through, so were going to take it apart. My mates (hes a carpenter) chain saw was going to come out and play at one point when we got it stuck in door frame. The 2 seater went in fine!

Oh yeah another major point is the boiler packed up last night and blew a circuit breaker. So it was bloody freezing last night.

At 26 it was about bloody time though.

Nice one Russ - glad you're in OK Smile

When we moved in here we didn't measure the sofa so had to remove the door frame to get the bloody thing in!!  :o  If thats not an option are there any windows you can take out?

Looking forward to a ride soon then we can all pile back to yours for housewarmng tea and cakes Wink

I'm very jelouse Russ, at 31 it is DEFINATELY about time i moved out, but i just can't afford to on my own :Smile I actually moved in with a couple of mates i worked with in Mc Donald's, but about a month after i moved in the bloody landlord decided he wanted to turn the 2 flats back into one house again and we got evicted! 2 of them bought a house and the other 2 went back to their parents, so i have been stuck back here ever since :B

How much too wide is the sofa? Removing the door and frame is a pretty easy process, so if that'll work it would probably be easier than dismantling the sofa.

Spooky coincidence about the boilers, you all must have been freeking freezing last night!! I hope the landlord is paying to get yours fixed Russ, they arntcheap!

Right they found the fault with the boiler, there is a short in the electrics and it should be fixed by wednesday hopefully. My mate as i said is a carpenter and he said as its a pvc door removing the frame is not and easy process, if it had been wood he would have been right on it. Think hes going to take the sofa apart sometime and we will get it in.

Urghhh today i have:

Sorted Contents insurance, went for M&S as they are the best with my bike on the policy.
Changed address on: Car insurance, driving license, phone bill, Bank and work
Sorted out Residental Parking permit.
Researched refuse collection dates

Welcome to responsibility lol
