Move Of House
Well, since I last posted the Vulture family has moved house and relocated 150 miles north in York. Unsurprisingly not a stress free experience, but one that we have lived through. Frantic packing paid off, because the removal van was absolutely chock full. It's one of the only occasions I can think of where having my old CCKW truck has saved us money, for without using that the removals firm would have had to employ a second van and a couple of extra guys. Help has been provided in the shape of my brother Bruce who did a dash over from Crewe for a day to help us assemble three new wardrobes and an old friend Theo Street who spent a couple days boarding out the centre area of the house loft for storage, sorting out a dodgy water-damaged floor in a bedroom, and reinforcing the garage loft. The loft activity was essential as the garage gas been (and still is to a degree) full of boxes of my gaming gear !! :) Anyway, after 4 days hard work we managed to get the house into a respectable enough shape to host my in-laws on X-Mas day. A pleasant day it was as well, with a bit of PC gaming thrown in in the evening as Mike (brother-in-law), Alex and I took on the AI in a satisfying 'Dawn of War' PC bash.
