Oh gosh, no place to hide right now. I am having to make phone call after phone call, knowing BT are ripping me off as I haven't been able to negotiate a new contract as we are moving and I do NOT want to be tied to them for 2 years after we have moved. We will have to sort out Sky nearer the date too. Plus change energy companies - possibly to Octopus, which as good reviews. Currently with the Green Energy Company, who have been good - they are also up for renewal but I will let that hang too.
We had a removals chap here yesterday (one Keith met when he was moving our neighbour at the bottom of the hill and he came here by mistake). I was NOT impressed - he seemed to rely on the brute strength of his workforce and really, I want unbroken china, careful transference of antique furniture, and sufficient insurance cover! which he did NOT have . . .
So I have found 3 local companies recommended in the local tradesmen listings, and two are coming out in the next week. So it will be masks on again as we have to show them round. Moving in the middle of a Pandemic is not ideal, I have to say!
I'm off out to the pony stables this morning, and then Tam and I will do a Tip Run. We need to get hold of a charity shop so we can offload various boxes of books and bags of good clothing. I think the books are best going to the Red Cross bookshop in Llandeilo, so I will phone them first thing. I will try the Salvation Army shop too. No-one was answering the phone when we tried on Wednesday.
I may also call in Leo, who has the bookshop in town, and get him to give me a price on the archaeology books I want to part with. I am about to go through them and put all the ones I am going to keep on one shelf. I need to find a Ruthless Streak I think!
Then I must photograph all Danny's books and DVD's and see what he wants to keep. It's all go here!
