It's all coming together.....

Before we head off on our final big adventure, I thought I would share our plans so far about our return to England.

Everything has been very up in the air and speculative.  Until last week.  We now know exactly (90%) how our return will work.

We had the delightful lady, Bonnie, round from the packing company last week.  Consequently we now know most of our return details.

So here goes.....

June 22-24 - the packers come to pack our house!  They do everything.  The air freight will be getting packed on the same day.  This is also the day we will effectively move out and go into a hotel.

This gives us a good 6 days to get the house sorted ready to be handed back to the land lord.  I believe he is putting it on the market.

July 1st - fly to Chicago, with a 3 hour lay over.  Then fly on to England. These flights have been chosen to enable the cat to fly with us.  The company have arranged for her to be transported with a pet moving company.  This will cost us, but will also be very convenient.  I have already begun getting her pet passport up to date.

July 2nd - arrive at London Heathrow.  Our plane gets in at 5.55am.  Our body clocks will be telling us it is just after midnight!  We will collect the cat and get our hire car.  We will then drive on to Chichester, where the company has arranged for us to have a 2 bedroom apartment for 6 weeks.  This gives us time to wait for our container to arrive, and time to find somewhere to live.  We will probably rent to begin with, until we get our finances sorted out.

So there you have it.  The only thing we don't know is what hotel we will be in at Greenville, and what kind of hire car we have.  I'm can't believe we are going back.  I knew it would happen eventually, I just am amazed it has come round so quickly......

Best go on holiday then.........
