It has been a long time since my last post, but at last the house has sold, 12mths on. So anyone out there still in that situation - hang on in there! Things have changed quite a bit, the main thing being that both our boys have decided they are now staying in the UK to finish their education, I guess it will give us time to get sorted, I do respect their decision but it would have been nice if they had come with us. All we need now is an improved exchange rate!!
