They're easily grabbable so just let me know. I just hope that I haven't
either moved or tidied before you get the chance to give the machine the
once-over. I had a photographer over from The Independent today who spent 90
mins or so taking pictures of some of my collection for an article in
saturday's edition, so this morning was a tidying frenzy to actually get
some floorspace back :)

I've got space if you get stuck.

You'll be stuffed when you get another job :oD
