The Week that Was

Gosh what a week.

 

I think I blogged briefly about the moving.  It was a lot of hard work and a bit stressful.  Two Men and a Truck were ok, but the younger dude wasn't very professional and didn't take a lot of care with our stuff, and I don't know that I'd want to hire them again.

 

We were due to have an inspection of our old place on Thursday arvo, so both of us trekked out there to meet them.  However they "assumed" that we wanted the inspection on the Friday since that was our last day, and didn't bother to show up.  Pretty pissed off about that.  Anyway, they came back the next morning without us, complained about some of the long grass at the front (prolly fair enough), and a cobweb in the living room (!?)  yet didn't say a thing about the filthy disintegrating curtains.. go figure... Apart from that they said everything was excellent.  So at least that's a bit of a relief.  No more rental inspections ever!!!

 

I've spent evenings here and all day yesterday trying to get this place sorted out.  Kitchen is mostly done now.  We tried the dishwasher for the first time yesterday.  (I've never had a dishwasher, so this is very exciting).  It was a bit fiddly and didn't start working straight away.  Stu fiddled a bit and eventually got it going.  We also setup the amplifier and associated paraphernalia yesterday.  *And* we did a big food shop.  Finally have a fridge full of vegetables, which I've been craving for a week.  Got very sick of fast food for a while there!

 

What's been with the weather this week?  It suddenly got *cold* !  Top of only seventeen yesterday.  Not good pool weather! heh.  I shouldn't complain, it'll get hot soon enough and I'll be wishing it was cooler :)

We used Two Men and a Truck when we moved from Columbus to the country ... and then back to Columbus.

A year or two later we were surprised to see Two Men and a Truck in Colorado as I'd thought they were local.

I recently saw some TMAAT boxes in a movie (Burn After Reading?) and right about that time a friend in another state mentioned they'd used them. When I told the friend we'd used them in Ohio she expressed surprise as she thought they were local to her city.

You can imagine how I feel seeing they're in Australia as well. The logo looks so non-international.

(Do you think it's the same two guys and truck and that they just get around?)

Congrats on getting moved in and mostly sorted out. That's always a good feeling.

Yes it's kind of odd seeing things you think are local in other countries.

Or seeing companies that you no longer see in your own country. Like Esso was big in Canada when we were there, but they haven't been in Australia for like 20 years.
