The final week..

Crumbs, it’s been a busy week so far, and it’s only Wednesday! Finished work last Friday, then we were straight into the last mad dash to get the house ready for when we leave.

There have been builders, gardeners, plumbers and electricians, and usually all at the same time! We’ve also been packing our luggage away ready for the trip to Heathrow and the flight to Oz! Also lots of visitors, with our many friends and my family visiting us to say goodbye. Oh, and lots of free meals too. (You know who you are). 🙂

But there’s also been thinking time, when we’ve just been sat around waiting for visitors, and it’s in those quiet times that we’ve been able to sit and think about what’s about to happen, and what we’re going to do. Donna really wants to do performing arts and I’m looking at a variety of jobs that interest me, one of which could be part time Linux networking work which would allow me to start having a go at developing some software. I’ve wanted to do that for a while, but never really had the time to get anything going.

Contact Page Fixed

Oops.. got a bit overenthusiastic with my .htaccess controls on the directory with the contact form script in, which resulted in no-one being able to contact me..

Fixed now! (Actually fixed earlier this week, but been too busy with emigrating things to be able to write about it)

An (almost) empty house..

Well the shipping people have taken all our boxes away that we’ve been packing up over the past few weeks, leaving a very empty house and a real feeling that this is it – we are leaving the UK.

Yesterday we were feeling a bit lost amongst all the space, but we’re starting to get used to it now. I think the real shock will come once I’ve finished work and we’ve got a whole week to ourselves before it’s time to leave. But the main feeling is excitement!

But, before that happens, I’ve got my work to wrap up, so it’s back to the grindstone for another week. 🙂
