Now, however, my mind has moved on to organising and clearing out as well as trying to keep the children entertained!
So far we have booked the flights to Iceland and have a provisional booking for our self drive staying at B&Bs around the country. We leave London on 25th Aug and return back on 1st Sept. We now also have our flights to Auckland booked. We leave Gatwick on the 2nd September and make our way out via, Orlando, New York, San Franscisco, Hawaii and Fijii.
The container is booked, with the packers coming in for four days, week commencing 3rd Aug. It still feels like a dream and is still not sinking in !!
Today has been spent sorting and making phone calls, cancelling this direct debit and this direct debit and I think there will be more of this tomorrow. As the days are passing, the house is becoming more and more of a bomb site , much to the delight of the children. They seem to see it as an excuse not to put their toys away.
What is sinking in, is the problems we face regarding our beloved pets. We started the long and expensive process of getting them to the other side of the world today. They visited the vets for microchips and jabs, well, Emma and Lou did. Thelma managed to escape from the cat basket just outside of the vets and ran off into the woods. She has thankfully just arrived back home now it is getting dark, but I can't get any where near her! I am going to have to give her lots of good things to eat tomorrow morning to try and get back in her good books as I need to try and get her to the vets for hers tomorrow evening!
