TOO MUCH INFORMATION

I was watching the Hurricanes vs Highlanders match on Prime TV (delayed telecast) and, during ad breaks surfed the net to find out how many Smiths were playing on each side,
I entered " How many Smiths Highlanders vs Hurricanes".
The Google options came up with at least the first three 'shouting' out "Highlanders beat Hurricanes".

This was before the first 20 minutes were up.

Bugger!

I hate watching sports when I know the result.



Bastard!


"...COULDN'T ORGANISE A PISS-UP IN A BREWERY"

I guess we won't be having a house warming party then.

The Old Girl is going to check out a 2 bedroom apartment to rent tomorrow.

It's in a refurbished brewery in York.



By all accounts it's pretty nice so with luck she'll decide to take it for a 6 month lease.
She says that it's on the third floor with no lift so moving furniture in will be a hassle.



Still, that's what furniture removal people are for. With luck her stuff from Canada will arrive before I do and it'll all be sorted by the time I get there.

TRAVEL PLANS

I'm arranging things for my imminent move to UK for 6 months and the list is seemingly endless.

I went through this two years ago before going to Canada so you'd think that I've got it sorted.

The problem is that there's just so many things to do:


  • Cancelling services
  • Emptying the apartment
  • Putting things in storage
  • Arranging to rent out the apartment
  • Arranging with various service providors to not send physical mail
  • Packing
  • Arranging finances
etc.

A newspaper article I read talked of safety when travelling to and living in another country so I looked up 'self defence' on the web.

I discovered this helpful video which is apt as York where I'm going to is most likely a few years behind big cities.
