It’s not like they were getting ripped off and they didn’t even put down a reserve price. I think £50 for something they were going to throw out is still better than a punch in the face with a shit-covered fist. And I am picking it up.
At the moment I’m only picking up one thing and that is a very nice blue three piece suite. I’m trying to buy other things because I’m forking out £100 for a van and want to get as much use out of it as possible. I’m tight like that.
Operation Move Into New Flat is starting to gather speed now. Tomorrow I am off to look at more furniture and on Sunday I shall be hiring the van and picking it all up and delivering it to the new place.
By the end of next weekend I might be staying there.
People think I’m exaggerating when I tell them it has taken me this long to clean the place.
Speaking of cleaning, I still have no done a quarter of the garden and today I found one of those hydroponic systems buried under a mattress. Goodness knows what I will find once it is all cleared up.
