Kate has keys...YIPPEE!

Kate went round to her new house today to meet up with someone from the housing department. After checking that all the repairs had been done, she signed her tenancy agreement and received her keys. The back garden still needs clearing but they're behind with gardens due to the bad weather we've had recently.
Since we got back I've sorted out her gas and electricity and she's currently on the phone to BT to sort out her phone line. She's been on there almost an hour and spoken to six different people! What a flippin' palaver! I still need to sort out her water rates, but I'll do that tomorrow before I take her to the hairdresser for her hair trimmed.
After the hairdresser we'll be off to look for paint and/or wallpaper as she got some decorating vouchers, and her maternity grant will be through tomorrow too, so we'll be off to spend some of that as well. We have five weeks to get her house sorted before the baby is due. All hands to the pump...
