When the nice young lady from Pickfords telephoned me last week to finalise arrangements for 'the move', she asked if we would require the full packing service. After much thought I replied,
"I'm not sure really. It's all rather personal having someone poking about in your drawers. What would you do?"
"Well they are professionals, and they are very discreet when dealing with clients." She replied.
"Hmm, let me get back to you."
And so I made myself a nice cup of tea and started to ponder. Then I started to have a little look in some of the said drawers. Then I started to inspect the contents further, and as I had emptied the drawers, I decided to clean them, and then as everything was out of the drawers I thought it would be a shame to put everything back in the drawers. So I packed it into boxes. Several days later and umpteen cups of cold tea I am now surrounded by mountains of boxes and immaculately clean drawers.
The professional, discreet drawer rummaging service is no longer required. However I shall retain their card, purely for reference you understand.
