Stage One - Complete
There was a slight hitch with the handover of keys for old flat (our solicitor managed to lose 2 sets of our keys, and by the time we realised this the third set had been put through the letter box and were sitting behind the locked front door), and we didn't have any hot water in the new place until last night, but other than that it has all gone very smoothly.*
I don't miss the old flat at all. I thought I would, but I was at the point where I was totally done with the place, and I've already moved on. The best thing of course is no more Psycho Ginger Bitch! It's bliss!
*There was a slight moment of tension caused by a rogue curtain pole and a screwdriver that wouldn't behave, but thankfully disaster was averted.
