So this morning we had Crown Relocations come round to give us a quote. However, as seems typical in this isolated country where everyone is in their own bubble, they rock up in a fully liveried car outside my rented property!!!!! At least now I won’t need to give notice to the landlord because the curtain twitching neighbours will do that for me!
This relocation back to civilisation is about me and not Crowns self-promotion! How utterly indiscreet and stupid can a company like this be? At no point did the two agents I spoke to or the consultant who telephoned me to confirm the night before say that there would be a huge banner on their car! I sent the lady back with a flea in her ear, I was a bit harsh, but seriously, this sort of thing should just not happen!

Get a grip! Who care's about if everyman and his dog knows your leaving? Why does it matter?

Uhm because we are not leaving until February and the landlord, partners employer don't know! That's why it matters!

I stipulated that the movers park around the corner from our house when they came to estimate the moving cost. It's a small town and we weren't yet on the market at that stage.

Not least the fact that my husband had not yet resigned from his job. Like I said, it's a small town.
