Good to hear from you Gus. I had been thinking about your journey and hoping you would post an update on here for us all!
Im very glad the weather is glorious for you. It makes doing all those arduous/necessary jobs so much more pleasant, and you know the weather you left behind don't you??! ( I write this as I sit listening to the roofer replace our missing felt, tiles and boarding from the Xmas storms!!)
do keep us (me) posted on the job situation. We have submitted the first of our Vetassess documents, so that's the first part of the process done, but we have been advised that the waiting time from start to end is now around 10 months, so it looks as though we'd be looking at early next year now. It's a bit of a blow tbh, but I'm going to get some contract/mat leave sales work to help with the finances and of course by this time next year you will be an old hand and hopefully able to give me some advice!
all the best and enjoy the sun!
