Well, whatever isn't done now won't get done. Our suitcases are packed, the stuff we couldn't fit in is put away. Everything's looking pretty bare now with nearly all our belongings packed away either in the lockup or in the caravan. The fridge is cleaned out, the bathroom's been cleaned, the pantry is empty, the grass has been mowed, the weeds sprayed, the washing's right up to date and.... our boarding passes are printed.
We've had our leftovers for dinner, fielded some farewell phonecalls and text messages (thanks so much everyone), and spent a lovely couple of hours with our favourite neighbours from the old place. J & J we'll miss you guys. Thanks for coming over on our last night.
It's amazing how calm we are tonight. I thought we'd be pretty stressed. I'm not even fussed that I've not completed everything on my list. It really is the most surreal feeling to think that something we've dreamed about and talked about for so long is now right on our doorstep. We're about to go and live the dream!
Good Luck Guys, You will be fine when you get here! Look forward to meeting you on the cut, enjoy your dream that is soon to be reality! Safe journey and we look forward to reading your blog when you are this side of the world!! Best Wishes
Have been following your blog for a while. Had to smile yesterday when we pulled into our marina and there was Parisien Star up on its blocks waiting to be put back in the water. It feels like a brush with a celebrity.
Hope you have a fabulous year ( or two ) here in the UK.
Best, Ian and Christine (NB Kaysera)
Have a safe flight and see you soon.

looking forward to reading your blog from this side of the world!
Hi Elly and Mick
Welcome to your new life. You know we still hanker for the life on the canals. The best thing we ever did.
Have fun and enjoy it.
We're all packed up and ready to go. I'm just waiting for Mick to come back from mum's (we had to take her car back) and she'll drive us to the airport.
Ian & Christine, we'll look out for you!
I can sense the excitement!
It's 1 in the morning as I'm reading this can't stop here!
Ade, that was a day we will never forget! E
