removals in to-morrow
well finally it is all happening, removals coming tom, been at it for weeks, getting everything ready. Should have been moving out tom and rental moving in, but as most of you know it fell through. Also found out container not even leaving before end of feb (only taking part container), so we wont be getting stuff till may at least!!
4 weeks to-day i will just have arrived at singapore, although i can't wait, i am also scared. Recent threads on here have made me even more scared about the big move, money wise, worried about paying bills both side's until house rented.
Think with it know happening and being so close the scared side is hitting in, it has always been me who has wanted to get out of this country, kids never happy about it, and feeling guilty about what i am doing, knowing it could be me that want's to come back after everything i have put them through...
Deep down i know it is normal to feel this way, and can't wait to start living my new life. Knew i could vent my thoughts on here and get some support.
Thanks in advance
Good luck with everything Cara,
We know exactly how you feel. When we left the UK we had no tenants and we left the house empty. We arrived to government accommodation on arrival which was just the ticket and cheap rent.
The day we found our long term rental we found a tenant for our house back in England.
So it all fell into place and we must admit it wasn't easy but we have no regrets what so ever.
All the best
How exciting Cara Don't get scared. Its an adventure. Its a great adventure to be looked forward to not dreading. The challenges that lay ahead is far better than stuck in a routine of school, food, bills to pay, work, etc.
There is so much to explore, see and do here. Its a big country full of unfamilar animals, shops, laws, lifestyle, etc, etc, etc.
As the only rapper that can sing once said 'don't worry, be happy.';)
love it pete.. don't worry be happy. could rely on you to make me smile...Thanks mate

It won't be long and you will be here help out those just coming over. Thats the way it works.
good luck with everything and petes right you know ! we are all here to help just shout !
feeling exactly the same way at the moment. were due to have shippers in next Monday but our completion date has been delayed by two weeks, so that is now on hold. Still planning on 23rd Feb but flights not booked yet.
I had my car stolen and written off on Boxing Day, my beautiful pink one, so have got all the hassle of the insurance claim as well as the packing, planning, bill cancelling etc.
My OH and daughter are devastated that the internet and Sky TV will be disconnected at the end of next week and they will have to live without it for a whole month!!!!
Chin up girl, it will all work out.
Best of British to you, you will be fine x
Most people seem to have these last minute doubts and most get through it but it doesn't stop you worrying does it.
Our packers come next Wednesday and so far I'm OK. Maybe the reality hasn't hit me yet and will only come to a head when I say bye to my kids (18 & 22) which I am not looking forward to.
