Many thanks for the near magical (quart into a pint pot) packing skills of Jem. Equal thanks to very magical sandwiches and coffee provided by Jo and for providing extra pair of lifting hands.
Picking up the last of the stuff on Monday then hand my keys in, and due to some odd quirk of accounting there's no overlap ofrental period and I get my deposit back. So that's the first month rent for the new one and one van trip paid for.
Now off to the pub to thank Jem properly.
