Moving Tales: Part 2

In Home & Garden, WTF

In my last post about our recent house move I expressed frustration about a series of relatively minor but annoying problems that we’d had so far. The two main issues were the lack of hot water, and a mystery leak. Shortly after posting I started… read full entry →

Appearances can be deceptive, and other moving tales
