      Thanks for the great advice! We need to have a look at these things and stock up definitely.

      We brought Aaron's Wii and PSP but other than that left everything electrical, I guess it depends if you're shipping your stuff or travelling light. We chose to leave everything and start again (our furniture was mostly from argos anyway) and have found that we hardly miss anything, it's amazing how much crap you accumulate that you don't really need!! After a year the only thing that I miss and I wish we'd shipped is my pictures and photos in frames, but we'll probably send for them yet oh and my pans I wish I'd brought my pans, they're so expensive here for good ones.
      Good luck with it all......there really isn't that much to organise haha Fiona xx
      Thanks. I've heard te bit about pots and pans so I definitely think we need to invest before we leave!
      Thanks for the advice
