We came, we saw, we drove 560 miles through rain, sunshine, more rain, snow (yes, snow) and even more rain, but we made it. One very quick trip to Cornwall later and my flat now has about as little in it as I can sensibly get away with for the next two weeks, where I'll be leaving London at some point over the Easter weekend (exact date subject to much randomness) with one last car-load of stuff and that's it.
It feels really good to have all this done, both in terms of getting it out of the house and getting me another step closer to going, and in that the dejunking of my life is mostly done - something, as I've said many times now, I wish I'd done years ago.
Little brothers - they have their uses. Thank you, AJ.
