Isn't moving FUN?

Phew, it's been a long day... and it's only 4pm! Dan and I have spent all day attempting to sort out our TV, broadband and phoneline when we move to Bristol - on top of sending letters informing every company under the sun of our new address, of course. That was OK, but it turns out we'd have to pay £125 to BT if we want to use their phone service - which isn't great, as we need a BT phone line for our current Internet provider. Plus we'd need to pay Sky £60 to install a new dish, so the whole thing isn't looking cheap... we're tempted to give up and go with Virgin Media for everything, but I'm fully aware that that means no more Sky 1! Dan is currently talking to "tech support" (AKA his step dad) on the phone, and it sounds like there might be another solution... we'll see...

Anyway, in an attempt to do something much more enjoyable (and avoid writing my dissertation as well), I've hidden in the spare bedroom, updating my next newsletter and adding photos to the website of our recent trip to Marseille. The newsletter's half finished, and will be due out at the end of the month - if we have managed to set something up by then! Anyway, you can see the Marseille photos on the Photos page of our website.

Moving is fun!!!!! Compared to getting BT to install a working phone line....

No, because moving ALSO involves attempting to get BT to do something useful... so you have that ON TOP OF all the other shit!
