Andrew ran from Islington and I cycled from the Isle of Dogs to meet in the depths of the Barbican at lunchtime today. We were tasked with the removal of a recliner chair, which on the face of it didn't seem all that tricky but you never know when it comes to other people's furniture.
We easily found the flat and identified the chair, which was in superb condition, and the hardest part of removing it was getting it out of the room initially as it had a very narrow entrance but with some creative thinking and enthusiastic manoeuvring we had it outside and in the lift to the basement in only a few minutes.
Quickly we established where it needed to be left and with a combination of wheeling and lifting it was quickly in place, and just before departing Andrew took the opportunity to enjoy some very brief respite (on the newly located chair) before his jog back home.
With this being the third time I'd picked up medicine for Ms J from Qrystal Pharmacy and dropped it off at hers nearby, it's become very routine and today was most straightforward.
She was in a typically appreciative mood and after a quick chat at her door while she checked that all was expected, I was back off to an afternoon of work.
Leo is extraordinary; they've received 1000 cheers. That's some serious noise and some serious support. Leo is an apostle.
It was nice to see JC again, just around the corner from the last mission we did together.
Today's mission billing was similar in that we needed to move a bed, although this time from Miss I's flat to the bins.
It was a particularly heavy mattress, with no handles, so absolutely a two-person job. It wasn't all that far from the bins but JC had a superb idea to bundle the mattress over the wall which was very much in the way, after which point it was a case of just dragging it over to the bin.
All done in under 10 minutes, so a very rapid, successful mission.
Laura and I met just outside Mr P's flat, in the City. We'd been warned there was a big job, and more than we'd be able to do in one go but were told that we could help advise on next steps as well.
We were greeted by Mr P who was very pleased to see us, and we loaded up with boxes to take down to the lock up shed a couple of floors down. Upon seeing the shed we realised that it was in much need of a reorganisation as there were many boxes haphazardly strewn meaning the small shed didn't have much available space for more of the boxes of items he wanted to relocate there.
We spent a good half an hour taking items out, and putting them back in again, in a more snug, organised manner. It resulted in a lot more space and we were able to fill some of that with more boxes that had he filled already with items from the flat.
Back at his flat there was more shunting and shifting to be done to make the requisite space. We discussed a few ideas, making some progress but ultimately Mr P was keen to mull over the ideas before taking any further action.
He was most pleased with the progress and could foresee how the rest would be addressed, so everyone was suitably pleased at the end.
