Getting ready to go

Hello, it is Nicola here. I have finally found five minutes to write an update on this what have we been up to? Well, we have exchanged contracts on our house, which was a big relief and we move out just before we leave Guernsey. We have started packing, sorting, tidying, emptying etc...we started with a lot of enthusiasm but to be honest that got a bit boring after a while! We have arranged some storage in Guernsey for the things we want to keep (okay, really mainly things I want to keep) and have started gradually moving boxes into the store.

The current task is that we need to sell our car, so David spent three hours cleaning it on Sunday (thank you David!), so if you are looking for a Citroen Xsara Picasso then please do get in touch!

We are starting to go through some of our 'last evers', which has been quite sad. We have had last swimming lessons, judo lessons and last day at school is tomorrow for Peter. The saddest goodbyes are yet to come though!

Despite being sad to leave Guernsey, which has become our home over the last five years, we are very excited about the adventure ahead. The next challenge is to pack all the stuff that five people need for a year into two rucksacks...
