- Back up to Newcastle to stay at Lorna and Bill's while they are on holiday. They are very trusting obviously. Has been great to feel like we have our own place and unpack a bit.

- Dave's parents came up with colds to help us then for a week of sorting, unpacking and repacking, loading and unloading. We went through all our stuff in storage to sort out what to take to Australia and what we will need when we first get there and then later on. Chucked not too much out (most of which filled Tony and Joyce's car for unsuspecting car booters in Essex). Then had to collect our massive painting from the Arts Council in Newcastle (we lent it to them) and Tony kindly crated this up while we dismantled furniture ready for all remaining stuff in Stanwick Street to be collected on our final hectic day. During the process also borrowed the van from my old work and caught up with people there which was great and lovely to see everyone again.

Were shattered by the end but relieved. Celebrated with wine in the sunshine knowing we had Easter 'off'

- Are in Newcastle until tomorrow where we do another round the country set of visits before ending down south for a bit. Tomorrow is another big day as we complete on our house (fingers crossed)!

We have in the interrim also been working on our businesses, I have finished our business and marketing plan for our first one - watch this space plus Dave is now fully trained in Dreamweaver. Also investigating other possibilities and as a potential fall back option looking into jobs in Oz in case we wimp out completely.

Current plan is to move out mid/end Sept and spend a few weeks in a campervan from Sydney to Noosa confirming where we want to live. Then rent for a while and then buy somewhere. Anyone that has any advice, opinions, mates out there, etc we would love to know as is a bit daunting!
