Looking forward to the sequel...

Best I get the tea and biscuits ready for the sequel tomorrow. Phew!
If ever we move again I will have a large bonfire of the vanities. Most of my psychiatry books have gone to a book bank already.

I'm not, Tim!

I have looked up loads... a Luton van must not be more than 3.5T gross weight. Taking off the weight of the van itself, that leaves between 1 - 1.25T of legal carrying capacity.

Do they impound vans and contents if they are pulled over to be weighed and found to be overweight I wonder?

I think I now understand why they are staying in a pub where they are staying tonight - 30 miles south of here, but in the middle of nowhere - they are planning to cut across country and avoid the weighbridges around the northern cities.

All is prepared here for the morning - every mat we have up here is in position to cope with wet feet, the carpeted floor upstairs is covered in 'Roll and Stroll' to protect it, and I have 10 old bath towels at the ready to wipe down things that get wet coming in through the rain. Nice Nearest Neighbour (who lives half a mile away) is going to be here at 8.45am to 'provide moral support' (she kindly volunteered), and I already know the removal men drink white coffee with no sugar.

There is only one benefit to Mr BW not being here... I get to drink the whole bottle of wine.

Most of mine are currently on the A1 delcatto...

Much more enjoyable than actually being at site. However it must still have been a little tense just watching from your spy cam.

Kippy - yes. But... the removal men clearly had no idea that there were CCTV cameras (as they never looked at them, which you do if you know they are there), so it will be very difficult for them to understand how I know exactly what is where and it which van tomorrow. Despite not being there, I know more about the loading than any of those who were! It feels a bit strange.
