The whole ‘moving into a new flat’ thing is turning into one huge pain in the rear. My electricity and gas are buggered up, I may be getting gas sometime next week, no ida whn my electricity will be fixed. There is dust everywhere, and no matter how much we sweep/brush/vacuum, there just seems to be more of it than ever.
