    :biggrin::rofl: CONGRATULATIONS

    Its a wonderful feeling isnt it when you get word back ! I remember i didnt know whether to laugh or cry - we leave in 3 and a half weeks and its still not sunk in - i think it only will when the removals turn up to empty the house, when are you thinking of going then ?

    It's when you book the flights (and in our case the dogs flight) and short term acccomadation etc that it sinks in. Most people didnt realy think that we would go through with it until we booked everything. 8 weeks and 5 days to go.

    We booked our flights with Singapore airlines as we are stopping in Singapore for 3 nights enroute:laugh:. Morris our dog flies out 4 days before us and will not enjoy the expeirience.:frown: We used petair as they have had a lot of recomendations. We went with their gold service which is not cheap but takes most of the hassel away and they will also arange a flight from Sydney to Brisbane after Quarenteen . We are stopping with Cal for 3 weeks when we get there.(brisbane relocations). We are stopping on her pemises but i Know she has a house as well so might be worth a pm. We are shipping with Crown(0800 731 4409) at £665 for 100 cubic
    feet but only because the man i talked to was friendly and helpful as most are around the same price.
    Where abouts do you live now.

    We live in a little village called Friockheim, on the east coaest of scotland, so moving back to a big city will be strange! We are hoping to got to North Lakes, but we wont it to be easy for Kim to get to work on the train!, So we will have alot of driving and train rides to sort us out!

    Lee ,make sure they are a good firm before you commit ,the majority of problems seem to be with sub contractors this side thats why ive always stuck with Crown ,not the cheapest but no subbies to pass the book,,
