tomorrow is d-day

Monday 13 December 2010 is d-day for getting the keys to our first gallery space.  All has NOT gone well in the lead up to tomorrow and the past 6 months have been a bit of a nightmare (see ‘the property’ post).  Our ‘final’ inspection on Friday revealed a space full of office furniture, files, missing light fittings and a general mess.  To make matters more interesting, the front door was blocked with lumps of concrete, chairs and other office equipment (I think someone was trying to prevent us access but can’t be sure).  To our bewilderment, there were also people moving things into our future storage cage, rather than moving things out!

All of this meant that the ‘final’ inspection ended up being the ‘second last’ inspection.  The final inspection will now be just after 9am Monday morning.  If all is not okay, a fairly large spanner will be thrown into our works.  Hopefully I’ll have good news to report after 11am.  Wish me luck!
