I always said a plan would present itself and I was right!
It was always going to be a big debate as to when exactly we should go permantly but after much discussion - well an hour or so in the pub! (we did continue the conversation for several days after but I think we had really both decided on the first one) we have finalised our moving plans.
My parents have a buyer for their house, and A has no more work on his contract so we are off next month!!!!!!!!!!
Everything is in action, we are packed for shipping, and they are picking up on Wednesday, from that day we will be living out of 3 suitcases as that is all we can take on the plane, well that a puschair, car seat, travel cot, 3 hand luggage bags and a baby of course!
We are having Leo christened before we go, and it will also be our leaving do as we have booked our flight for 2 days afterwards. I can't promise I won't be crying by the end of it!
We are going out for 4 days on our own at the begining of November, something I've given up explaining to people, I can see where it might semm a little strange when we are off only 2 weeks later but aside from the fact that the trip is my anniversary/birthday pressent, it will be the last chance for us to be "baby free" for quite a while and I would really like to see the apartment and get to know it without distractions!
So, just over a month until the big move, lots of stuff to do between now and then - leaving drinks and lunches, well it would be rude not to!
