We have had Pickfords round, very nice man. Hubby is doing the haggling part, Pickfords have dropped their price. Think they keen for the business. Bet your house looks empty now your furniture gone. We aiming to have ours taken towards the end of January as having the little kids can't be without much for long.
It would be great to meet up at some point after our arrival, we have applied for OAA so hopefully will get that. We hoping to be around the Port Adelaide area as that is where Hubby got a job. Once we got wheels though we will be happy to travel around. Will have to find an internet cafe as not sure if OAA's has internet access. Do you have Facebook? I'm 'Michelle Dimmock' and picture is a of my daughter wearing her Piggy nose and ears look me up if you got it. That my biggest fear, making friends, we a friendly family :) so hopefully shouldn't have any problems and having small children who make friends easliy is great as you can make friends with their moms.
We looked at the 8th for flying but went for the Sunday as thought be less traffic travelling down to London. Be great to find someone on same flight that you can chat to.
All the best with your move and have a great Christmas.
