I think I'm in shock and writing this post isnt helping
We have managed to have one heck of a couple of days.
It started on Sunday. We hadnt told the kids about the australia thing as Meggie has a eye problem and we dont know weather she will get a visa or not. So we were keeping it quiet and not telling the kid's! Anyway on Sunday we were walking up to church and Tim (our vicar) waltzes up to us and says " Hi you Guy's I must arrange to come and see you and see how this emigrating things going!" Tim I must point out is anything but QUIET..
Joey who is of the so laid back he's horizontal type of male, misses all this and carries on is his own sweet little word totaly oblivious to his poor mum going puse in the face shusshing franticly as Tim disappeard rapidly into church in fear of his life! I think he thought if he made it that far he could clame sanctuary.. Meggie however is that sharp she will cut her self immediatly said "Mummy whats emigrating". Oh sh.............oot. We tryed the we will talk about it lator line and Meggie tured into a terrier with a bone she went on and on and on and on and on and (anyway you get the picture). After about 4 hours out of shere exasperation I said look Meg its when someone moves to a different country. My vaine hope was that ,that would be that, and at 8 years old and after 4 hours surley she couldnt make the connection between what was said and us moving. WRONG Que 10 min of tears and hysterics about not seeing her freinds folowed by 20 minuets of bouncing and excitment and cool we can have a pool in the back garden and can I tell my freinds. Then she dashed out leaving mum and dad feeling like a wet dishcloth! Joey through all this was fine he sniggered at the Australians calling your "bm hole" a freckle and wondered what they called freckles!Feeeeew
Now that for me was more than enough. So yesterday I decided to have a very boaring day and Iron. I was half way through when the phon rang It was the Estate agents.
I assumed they were ringing up to book a viewing. We havent had any for a while so I was quite pleased but she insisted I sat down! Not a vieing an offer. You could have piked me up of the flood Morgans work shirt nearly didnt survive. I even said twice are you sur you have got the right house! But yes it was a couple who had been to look round in August and offered £15,000 below the asking price so we said no. It appears they have found some more money and have offered the asking price.
So now the shock has set in. I think they will want to be in befor christmas, we have no visa yet and i am going to have to pack up a 4 bed house with a 8 5 and 2 year old( morgan has no holidays left) get a rental and shoehorn all our stuff int a 2/3 bed house. And still no sign of the visa yet. arrggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh
