Left work, found tenant for house, agreed shipping agent.  That's enough for one day!

I think one of the curious things that I'm learning from this whole process is how a big change is actually made up of lots of small ones.  People ask if it feels like a big leap, which it does, but the small changes that we are making on the way to the big leap are more poignant at the moment.  You have micro relationships with people, where you say hello and have a brief chat every week for eight years, then relatively suddenly you don't see them anymore.  I guess these will be replaced by other micro relationships in new jobs, social circles and so on.  I wasn't expecting that.

So today is all about, shipping, letting and storage!  Steep learning curve on all!

I'm struggling to enable people to comment on the posts without being Google+ members. Can anyone suggest a solution please?  Although how will you do that if you can't comment....

It's amazing when you start a project like this because you don't know what you don't know until you try something new!  I had never heard of EPCs before and as for international shipping, it's all very daunting!

I guess if you have to move a mountain you do it one small bit at a time, but it's a bit scary when the mountain is still there every day!

Even an journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, but that still leaves 999.99 miles....  Doh!

You know you're on a mission when you've got the garage cleared out before 8am on a Saturday!!
Here we go, the first weekend of embarkation prep, as I've decided to call it!  How much can we fit in to two days!  Strange how it's less than a week since we've found out about the trip and we've already learned so much about what we are going to have to do in just the next 11 weeks!

All of our belongings are now being put in to one of five categories:  keep, sell, take, give away, dump!!
I'm not sure this is going to be of interest to anyone, but on the request of Matt I'm willing to give it a go!
