    In a drawer, under the telephone book, I've found another letter addressed to a Mr C..... which looks to be from April so maybe he moved in after she moved out.

    You will have to have another chat with your new neighbours to throw some light on that tenant. Could be that the lady was the last one and the letter arrived whilst she was in residence, hence the reason it was in a drawer.

    Moving van is coming Wednesday morning for the furniture and then apart from a quick clean here that's me moved.

    I've been taking smaller stuff across in my big (85 litre) rucksack - and doing my back in.
    So yesterday I went to Argos and got a 50 litre shopping trolley for £25, much easier job now and well worth the money.
    When you think that movers charge about a tenner each for the same size box it's already paid for itself at least twice.

    In fact some of the stuff that's going on the van I could probably have taken on the trolley with the bag removed, and saved a bit more money.

    People on the main street must wonder why I'm constantly back and forward with it, no one could be doing that much shopping.

    Not realy spoken to the new neighbours much other than introductions but the guy in the bungaloe next door is friendly enough.
    He's got a 3-wheel 'easy rider' scooter: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Drive-3-Whe.../dp/B0816YCTVD
    Says it's great except for a wet bum, the bucket type seat fills with water if its raining.

    I've always fancied one of those scooters but the 3 wheels put me off because of stability. Another one I would love is a Gatsby scooter but I couldn't warrant paying the price just for the novelty. https://www.eden-mobility.co.uk/eden-gatsby

    Hope all goes well with the move.

    Good luck with the move NC - I hope it all goes well for you.

    Beau, you're completely right about the stability of three wheeled scooters. IMO, they are plain dangerous and shouldn't be sold. The main problem with them is that the narrower front end lulls you into thinking you're further away from the kerb than you actually are - the result is that the back wheel goes off the kerb and tips you into the road.

    I do have an automatic folding one that has 3 wheels but it is only good for flat surfaces such as supermarkets and shopping malls

    Now in my new flat and posting this from here.

    The furniture move took a whole 45 minutes from the guys turning up at the old place to them driving off from the new place.

    Still got some smaller items to move, meters to read and power/gas to shut off - I expect to give the keys to my old landlord tomorrow or Friday.
    And still deciding just where to place the furniture here.

    Nice and quiet, apart from some ground works out back on the flood defence scheme which is still quieter than living on the main market square which also has demolition/building work going on at the moment.

    A few little niggles to sort out with the flat, broken trickle vent, vertical blind slat hanger broken, drawers and cupboards close with a bang, etc. but nothing major.

    Upstairs neighbour seems quiet enough, we'll see after I've been if for longer.

    All in all I'm made up with the place and no longer mind that I didn't get the last one because of my old landlord - this is much better.

    Thanks for all the good wishes.

    Everything & I mean Everything happens for a reason Nuke. We may never know why or like now it's because something better was waiting for you round the corner

    Huge Congratulations again Nuke, if there's anyone who deserves it it's you for all the help you give me & others on here

    I hope this also gives you more money than you have had to go on too

    Next step new PIP claim for someone who can go unconscious at anytime for hours at a time there is no way you can cook safely or take care of yourself reckon you should go for it. What is there to loose? apart from lots of money you could be claiming & in your pocket every month
