I know – things are very quiet on my front – but we are moving soon again and are back to the normal process of packing up our house. We’ve been unpacked for all of 9 months now and I’m gutted that we are having to rebox everything. Fortunately this time, we are only having to move house (the owner of our house wants it back for the World Cup!) Needless to say – I will be offline – more or less again – so that I can focus on finding a house and then moving again. Gutted, Gutted, Gutted but such is life
