I've bought sturdy bags of the type people use to transport duvets or their worldly goods if they are unfortunate enough to be homeless.
The plan is as follows. I get the keys to the new considerably smaller flat on Thursday. By then I want everything to be packed up and the current place to be clean and ready to be handed back with no quibble from the letting agent who can then inspect it and give me my deposit back.
This was going pretty well until I was hit by a wave of ennui dahlings. So strong was it I had to go for a walk.
It looked like it was coming on to rain. Frankly I didn't care. I needed to get away from the cleaning.
So I strode in the direction of the supermarket and bought an "Acme Supersplosher Pro". Or something similar. In a world where everything is getting more and more expensive it is gratifying to note that buckets are still comparatively cheap.
The bucket was £3. Less than the price of a pint. So next time you are out pouring beer or exotic cocktails down your neck on a Saturday night. Think how many pails that purchases!
