The packing is in full swing. The garage is now almost full of boxes to transport. My machines are packaged and also ready to go. We have packed so much that life will be a little difficult in the remaining four weeks.
My car is coming along nicely and I hope to take delivery in the next two weeks. I now have two cars to sell. The better half wants me to sell her car first. I asked her to clean it for photos as I already have too much to do. Wish I hadn`t. She used one of those cleaning sponges with the green scourer on the back. She used the scourer side on the Seagull mess. Oh dear!!!. T Cut needed immediately. Not too bad now. We will have another go before advertising.
The first two machines were removed from my factory today. I will finish the last tool this week. Feels a little strange knowing that this is nearly it. No more having to be at work by 7.30 and no more customers demanding quicker deliveries at lower prices. Bliss.
The house is being prepared for the tenant. I have put a new roof on the shed and painted it. Still lots of things to do but slowly getting there. I have just had the gas and electric inspections done. Gas was good but a couple of things to do with the electrics.
I had to arrange for the final bills for gas, electric, council tax, water, TV license and Vergin Media today. It was easy to do all of them except for Virgin Media. They have you on hold whilst transferring you to the leaving team then cut you off. I was not happy. I got so fed up with them that I wrote to them and sent it using registered mail. I hope that will make a difference. I looked them up on forums and this seems to happen a lot.
The cats go for their final health check at the vets in two weeks to get the necessary health certificate. They had their Rabies shots before Christmas. They will not like being in the car for 24 hours but they will love the new home by the river.
I now have to concentrate on getting all of the required self assessment documentation together so that I can drive through several European countries. We have to get 24 hour Covid tests done on 29th April. I have to go to Exeter for these. They cost £210 each.
