OK – so we’re moving 450 miles. And there’s a ferry crossing involved. Access is admittedly a little tricky at both ends. And we probably need two vans, because we’ve collected a lot of stuff in 50 odd years…

Finally we can talk a bit more openly about the move – look for more updates here soon…

Well that’s it – we exchanged on the old house today, so we’re defintely moving out! Just hope we have somewhere to move into soon… 😮
