I'm spending a couple of days helping a friend move house.

Back in my Uni days I spent a week doing removal work for a bit of cash in hand, and found it be one of the toughest jobs I've done.

Not only because lugging stuff down spiral staircases is tough (which it is) but because the lady of the insisted on giving a potted history of every piece of her beloved antique furniture supplemented by a detailed explanation of why my life would be over if I scratched anything.

My other abiding memory of that job was that the boss insisted on drinking four pints of Guinness every night before driving his van home at great speed. If anything, those journeys home made the furniture removal seem a relative breeze.

Anyway, it's darned hard work as I've discovered today.

When I move these days I just call Bondi Removals or Two Men and a Truck.

Gents, I salute you.
