Default It's that nearly 1am feeling and I am strangely feeling CALM

Well - this is where we are:

House on Market
First load of stuff in storage
In the stages of closing down my UK company (Not as emotional as I thought)
Finished Resume
Reopened discussions with HSBC Canada, still have accounts from 5 years ago.
Flights Booked
Insurance sorted
Dog cages ordered

All in all - things developing nicely ... SO ... what can I not sleep ? Excitement? Underlying anxiety ?

Who knows ...

Bit of both probably. Get as much sleep as you can before the move... Emigrating is exhausting...

I reckon it's excitement.

I can normally sleep on a bed of thorns during a thunderstorm while being hit by rocks, lol, but since we sent our stuff away in a container last week I'm wide awake.

4 weeks on Thursday for us

I'm exactly the same. 12 weeks tomorrow for us. I get to 2:30am precisely every night and wake up buzzing.

It's probably the missus bedtime toy. Remind her to switch it off before she goes sleep next time

If he keeps waking up buzzing, she needs to switch it off and find somewhere more, um...hygienic to store it?

If that's your photo..lucky her!

OP, I didn't sleep properly for at least three months before I left, and the month before when all my goodies were in transit, I'd go to bed knackered and wake up in the middle of the night with my mind in a panic then guess what? It all gets much, much worse! Before calming down eventually. I'm really glad I moved, and I really hope you will be too....but I'm really really glad I don't have to do it again for the foreseeable future. Best of luck.
