This weekend our flat was a hive of activity given the steady stream of frugal gumtreers and mooching freecyclers. We shifted most of the stuff we chose not to take with us to London. There’s only bits of furniture left – bookshelf, 3 tables and bedside cabinet – plus other small pieces of junk. We’ve made £80 selling various bits through gumtree, which will pay for the petrol down to London plus a meal at some dodgy, expensive motorway service station.
All we have to do now is clean the place from top to bottom and pack our bags. All our stuff is in storage in London already. On Sunday, I’m selling my car to my dad. I’m dropping the car off at the airport where he’ll hand over a briefcase of notes, which will go towards something extravagant like paying the rent.
