Wolves at the door

I always forget how much work is involved in moving into new places. Last week I spent pretty much the entire time sorting out all kinds of new house things; previous tenants' unpaid bills, setting up new accounts with gas, electric and water companies, cleaning out the washing machine and finding out that the output pipe was blocked, unblocking the output pipe, mopping up a mini flood after a heavy rainstorm and getting the landlord out to fix the kitchen roof, the list goes on and I haven't even started to clean the place up yet or take an inventory of basic things that are needed.

Took a short break to come home for a friend's 21st this weekend so am taking advantage of the internet as much as I can (our house as yet doesn't have a phone line and bt are being very annoying and costing me a fortune in phone calls trying to set one up) but it's back down to it tomorrow. Just finished making a CD of my most listened to songs at the moment for my drive down. For anybody interested here's the track list:

  1. Sofa Song – The Kooks

  4. Just Another Love Song – Dead 60's
  5. Fire in Cairo – The Cure
  6. Naive – The Kooks
  7. Picky Bugger – Elbow
  8. Biggest Fan – Brandon Benson
  9. What If – Coldplay
  10. Landslide – Fleetwood Mac
  11. Pin Me Down – Luxembourg
  12. Matchbox – The Kooks
  13. Life and How To Live it – R.E.M.
  14. Mirror in the Bathroom – The (English) Beat
  15. Spit it Out – Brandon Benson
  16. Flavour of the Month – The Posies
  17. The Coast is Always Changing – Maximo Park
  18. White Girls – Five O'Clock Heroes
  19. We Get Low – Dead 60's
