Looks like I may have a new home on Fore Street. Just waiting for the landlord to follow up on references.
Is you proposed new home much different than the last? I would love to hear more about it if you'd like to share. Will it be much further away from work? How is your wrist today?I'm going to have to go out of my way to use this route to work in future, if the move goes through.
It was a lovely walk today but very humid still (92%). It's due to rain between 11 am and 4 pm so I'm hoping not to need to leave the office but may need to if paperwork needs signing or deposits made.

My new home will be much closer to work: just a 5 minute walk across the bridge and down the river. My current home consists of just 2 rooms with a shower cubicle and toilet. The new place has a small bathroom, kitchen, living room and bedroom so despite being fairly small has a good deal more space. I will need to furnish it myself, but don't need to get more than a bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and comfortable chair: I have tables for my computer equipment etc. and don't have or want a TV. I'll scan in the rental pictures tonight.Is you proposed new home much different than the last? I would love to hear more about it if you'd like to share. Will it be much further away from work?

Really happy for you Phil ~ it can't have been easy on the mind having to find a new place, even with all the experience you have in moving, I truly wish you all the best in your new abode.I'm something of an expert at moving: this will be number 18. I've learned not to rush and have given myself plenty of time: the rental on both places will overlap by a couple of weeks so there is plenty of time to get myself sorted. I've not got a lot of stuff (don't have the space for it) and my friend Tim the barman reckons he can borrow a van to help me.
I've got ten 80 litre (2.8 cubic feet) containers to use; that should suffice.
I'm not yet in touch with the landlord. The estate agent promised to push him for the information and let me know when they get a reply.
