I’ve just signed a lease for a new (well, different) flat in Plymouth, as I’m still working there. I definitely wanted to escape the student areas... students are a blight on the accommodation market. I was also looking for a furnished let, which most owners don’t offer, and a “break clause” and automatic rollover to rolling status - this is supposedly legally guaranteed, but try to achieve it!
So, I move in a fortnight. The new landlords seem to have picked on the market for contractors in the dockyards, so the terms are suitable... press on!
Went up to the Lakes to move the caravan, it’s back in the Peaks now. Walked up to High Cup Nick to christen my new wellies, very pleased with them. Definitely a rural art form, fell walking in wellies... saw the Fell Race, finished with steak and ale pie and beer in The Stag. A good “sign off”, really..
