Good to hear from others on this thread. I know we have a fair few people in the process of migrating lurking so if you want to join us, jump in
I took a heap of stuff to the charity shop yesterday. Didn't realise we had so much stuff (read crap ). Kids puzzles that are outgrown, some more books, knick knacks and all my wheat heat bags (can't ship as grain inside).
Today I am sorting out excess baggage with Singapore airlines (we don't get the migrant visa allowance but have found out you can get a good deal on an extra bag if you manage your booking online ahead of time). Its arriving at the airport and doing it there that costs more apparently, so am giving this a go.
