So, how are you getting on in your preparations I hear you ask. In fact, I hear that question at least twice a day! No I haven't started packing yet - I have been trying to work out box sizes and how much is a cubit metre. I think I have got it figured so will order some this week. One website recommends not filling boxes with more than 30 kilos in weight so it is easy for those carrying it to do so carefully.
All the admin continues to get done. I have booked the ferry over for Bertie and our friend Lloyd who is kindly accompanying him and taking the car back. I have also got us some travel insurance. Did you know you could buy one way travel insurance? It covers not only the journey (in our case from 23 to 28 July) but also 17 days after...I can't quite see what is different from normal travel insurance! Apart from no return journey of course.
I have purchased a new driving licence, having lost YET AGAIN the paper version. It has all sorts of groovy security features and holographic pictures on it. But unfortunately the picture (now black and white) is awful. Oh dear!
The girls can't read this, so I can tell you that I have got them some new Thomas the tank engine trains for the journey. Molly, Skarloey, Donald and Gordon for anyone who is interested!
Bertie rang the airline to book a skycot and ended up making about 12 calls as it turns out ebookers had put our names wrongly on the tickets. All sorted hopefully.
LissaLou has been given a place at Bertie's old nursery so that is sorted.
Grrr...a seagull just visited our balcony and nudged two defrosting organic chicken breasts over into our neighbour's garden! That has never happened before!! I was just deliberating knocking on their door and asking for them back, when the same seagull swooped down after them...may be a chicken-free chicken curry tonight!
Well, plenty more to do but nice to see the list going down.
