    It would appear to have either gone brilliantly and they are off somewhere wallowing in the new beast, or so badly they wont talk about it :)

    Most people lines their shelves with non slip matting (does what it days on the tin) like this. Lots cheaper at B & M Bargains though.

    Congratulations
    Enjoy the travel

    Good idea with the shelves

    We always line the shelves.
    Also make some for the glass over the hob & sink.
    Easy to cut to shape Iuse the thicker one for the glass
