Xtra doing its bit to help. The bags aren't touching the ground, honest.

Moving house is a rare event here: unlike the UK where some people seem to move in rennovate, change jobs, or just get bored and move out after a few years, families here stay in one place, and often occupy several pages of the telephone directory. However, one of my work colleagues moved house a few hundred yards up the road this week, so the Xtra and I went along to help. As it turned out the local carpenter had loaned them a van so the Xtra was of limited use, but I at least got a picture in.
