    We found a Lover’s Guide video tucked behind a joist in our under stairs cupboard when we moved in

    Lift the carpet, write “I WILL KILL AGAIN” on the floor in red paint, put the carpet back. They probably won’t find it immediately.

    Have you released the gimp from your fetish dungeon? ๐Ÿ˜†

    Other than that, liking SundayJumper’s suggestion ๐Ÿ™‚

    More serious suggestions:

    Insurance(s)
    Utilities
    Mail
    Keys (new and old)
    Instructions for new owners of your house – alarm codes, boiler etc
    TV licence

    Beers for when you get finished!

    write the new owners a little list of things that are peculiar to that house, eg, the shower always leaks on the left hand side, the bulb in the hall always goes pop after 2 weeks, the neigbours are ****: don’t discuss ‘foreigners’ with them.

    You’re sick.

    We forgot to retrieve about 400 spare keys from relatives.

    Read the meters.

    Pack all your valuables / holiday cash / handbag (yours and the wifes) put them in a bag and lock it in your car.
    Also passports / ipads / ipods etc – but they are identifiable so less likely to be nicked.

    Yes our removal men stole from us ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    & take a photo of the meter readings now – you wont remember on the day

    Buy a new house?

    Oh – the keys thing reminds me – our new house had been rented so we did not know how many keys were around with various agents and cleaners.
    Pretty cheap to replace the locks – both the cylinder type and yale, you can replace the key bit only.

    Put the kettle and some cleaning supplies in a separate box so that you can have a cuppa in your new place without searching through a hundred other boxes? Include teabags and biscuits as well.

    Meter readings +several.

    If it’s not too late pack overnight bags for everyone. Pack all the stuff you would normally take for a few days away. Keep those bags in your car and then put them somewheere easy to access. It means you can get showered and changed without searching everything looking for towels etc.

    Remember your cast off house is someone else’s exciting new life. A bottle of fizz and a card hoping they will be as happy as you were is always a nice touch.

    Then leave a gimp mask and a cow bone ‘hand cuffed’ to a joist in the loft.

    Did they hammer you on the price? If so …. top deck before you leave ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Buy a isolator valve thingy in case when the house you are buying from has had the washing machine yanked out, valve broke and water turned off…..luckily not hot water not a huge issue in June. No heating in Dec however equals grumpyness

    If you’re Philip Hammond – try to remember which of your houses to send your furniture to.

    Well the packers are almost done – just the garage to do.
    Just had the ‘how many bikes?’ conversation ๐Ÿ˜†

    good luck. I/we hardly ever move. moved into a flat in 1984, about 12 years later into a house, 12 years after, this house – that was 12 years ago. Hm.

    But to be fair out movers were very good.

    Everything out of the loft? When I bought my house from a couple of lovely gentlemen I found a box of Christmas decorations, a game of trivial pursuit and a large black dildo in the loft ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    Good luck with the move. The hardest bit, dealing with estate agents and solicitors, is done.

    I’m hoping this is my last move until we downsize.
