She’s About A Mover By the Sir Douglas Quintet Released 1969
By 08:15 we were on the road, a few minutes behind our man with a van, Mike, who was carrying all our bits and bobs, beds and mattresses. All this was going to our new home in Laugharne, The Showroom, No 1 Clifton Street. About four hours later and some two hundred and fifteen miles we were in our new home. Mike was only about 15 minutes behind us.
It was a quick time of unloading, Mike was paid, and he sped off back to the Badlands of Buckinghamshire.
An afternoon of bed assembly and mattress fitting and sheet tugging and we had somewhere to sleep and we kept all the polythene for dust sheets. Downstairs stuff was stored and we tried to figure out how to get the heating and hot water to work. This was one box unticked on our first day.
Sun streamed in through the front windows and we sat for a moment round our table absolutely exhausted. Rising, for one last push, we walked down to the Select Convenience Store for some potatoes and a bag of salad. The microwave was working, and jacket potatoes had never tasted so good. And so to bed. Day one, tick.
