In other news... (and I really needed some good news)
My letting agent has emailed me. They have new tenants for me... references are being checked and they move in as soon as old ones move out. And I have a sneaking suspicion I know the people, not very well just on nodding terms. Very relieved as I think the next few months could be expensive for me. And this would be the worst possible time for my income to halve. I'm thinking of getting digs near the hospital my uncle is in when I get back to the UK, my car is due for a service and MOT and I may have to clear out my uncle's flat, if he really is serious about going into a residential care home.
And, apropos to nothing what so ever, my 60Gb mp3 player is full up.
