We’re here. The broadband went live today, a week after originally planned. A locksmith has changed our locks. A plumber has OK’ed our boiler, but failed our gas fire, which now has the ignominy of a big yellow-and-red sticker on it saying it shouldn’t be reconnected until the flue has been somehow re-flued (I forget the details, but it sounded expensive.)
Meanwhile, the car’s MOT is due on October 20, and we’re opting to fail it before it fails itself. This is unlikely to end well: for the car.
(More updates later: now we’re online, we need to do an online shop. Online.)
