We reduced several large items: a hoover, a monitor, a large chair with lots of mechanical bits, a set of drawers and an old record player into pieces small enough for us to sweep into rubbish bags.
We used 2 hammers, a screwdriver and a pair of pliers to accomplish that and it very fun and cathartic! A symbolic farewell to the house :-)
I still haven't been able to ascertain whether NTL (broadband connection) is available at my new address. Contacting NTL is very hard and their website gives contradictory statements, saying broadband is available at my new address on one page and a different page says it isn't. ADSL isn't available... so there is a small chance I'm going to end up on ISDN connection. Which is poo!
