At the moment I am sitting here sorting out the services to the rental house in the UK. A British friend of mine, “R”, sent me a very long e-mail this morning which was extremely helpful to me and he had done some research on the best deals for electric and broadband etc as well as updating me on things I had forgotten about like the British TV License (I have to admit I wasn’t expecting that to still be around!).
Now I have until June 1st to pay my 6 months rent up front for the property (because I have no job) and I am hoping that my Canadian Visa Debit card from CIBC will work in the UK over the phone!
Plane tickets have been booked and with military precision (but also allowing for some degree of chaos) I have to work out train timings from Gatwick Airport to St Pancreas Station in London to travel to Nottingham so we can arrive at our destination on the afternoon of June 27, sign the rental paperwork for the house and get the keys so we have somewhere to sleep for the night…
In addition, tomorrow I return to Shingle Lake to finish clearing and cleaning the house for handover of the keys at the end of May.. several days work ahead..
Being so busy I really do hope for a decent weight-loss this week.
Looking forward to your food and weight loss updates… C xxx
