Eurolet are claiming that my notice period is a) 2 months and b) takes place from the first of the month.

This is marginally annoying, but having finally managed to decode my contract, has been the case all along. For me to have caught last month's date would have required writing the notice letter pretty much on the day I made the decision to go, and probably wasn't practical.

I can ask them to remarket it earlier - in fact I think I will - but of course that'll cost me extra.

Paying two sets of rent for more than about a month doesn't seem the best idea I've ever had (I can afford it but I'd rather not waste the cash). The options, however, don't look all that great either. Commuting will cost me 80-90 quid a week, and completely knacker me. And frankly I'd like to move ASAP anyway.

The best laid plans...

Aside: This would also appear to be the (annual) day that the world factionalises into hot-weather people and cold-weather people.

Aside 2: When we finally get our new place there will be a warming party. And I shall be laying on much alcohol, oh yes. In fact, while not wishing to encourage anyone to do anything to damage said pad, I may be forced to purchase a simulacrum simian to watch over said beverages.

ack! What a bugger.

If they remarket the place early they should't have any problem getting a new tenant - after all, places as nice and central as your flat don't come up very often, and tend not to hang around.

Aaah, a housewarming. I'm good with those. I hope I can make it, if that's OK? :)

If I had more than a vague idea of who you were that might be easier to answer.

Yup, fair point. Keep forgetting that lurking doesn't make you instantly known..

I'm a friend of dennyd's, which I'm sure you already know. I added you after the icon-swapping incident after I met dennyd, and after you and the other camgoths kept posting about how similar you both were in some ways..

That's about it really. Other than that I'm fairly outgoing and friendly :)
