Hi, no the animals have their own kennels up on deck. You are allowed to visit them but they are definitely not allowed in your cabin.

At least you're allowed to visit. That probably helps. I'm just trying to figure out whether it would be less stressful for our cat to go via QM2 or fly. I know the price will probably change by the time we would be leaving, but would you mind giving the cost of what it was? Thanks!

I love this threat, how inspiring. I'm so impressed with the conviction you and your wife had in moving. Would love to know how it's going in Manchester. Are you working yourself?

We love being back. I got a job in November that fits completely with my values so I couldn't wish for more.

Spent Christmas in Vienna with family and the week after New Year at a lovely old folly in Scotland.

Spent the last weekend of January in a cottage in Wales which was idyllic.

Went hiking locally couple of weekends ago; rugby at Murrayfield the weekend before and a terrific long weekend in London this past weekend.

Got plans for Italy in August and Christmas in an old property in the South West.

I'm taking in as many motorcycle race meetings as I can (spoiled for choice) and will be riding to Italy for the August event (a gathering of 18 or so friends and family).

Do I sound happy? We all are! It's the right move for us.

I can't recall; maybe a thousand dollars per animal?

Definitely worth it!

We are enjoying it. I think we might consider buying closer to Chorlton as we prefer the town centre there but for the moment we can't fault Sale.

Are you coming over from NZ in May?

Yes we are, but location is very much job dependent just now. Our girls are moving to Edinburgh but we are looking for best opportunities

Best of luck.

Edinburgh is brilliant but I'm a Scot so I would say that

I'm not a Scot but I agree that Edinburgh is brilliant. My wife's sister and family have lived just outside of Edinburgh (Balerno) for over 20 years and we love visiting them.

We enjoy hiking and love Scotland (lived in Dumfries for a couple of years in the 80's). We like to bag the occasional Munro (Munro bagging) but over the years have discovered a strange quirk of that pursuit. Munros are hills over 3,000' (close to 300 of them) but cloud coverage in Scotland is usually below 3,000' so the views are not often that good.

Small world indeed, one of my work colleagues in Dumfries used to commute in from Dalbeattie.

Not done hogmanay in Edinburgh but I'll bet it is brilliant. When we lived in Dumfries they had recently re-ordered Scotland's Bank Holidays so that the 2nd of January was also a holiday, thus providing an extra day to recover.

I thought 2nd January was a bank holiday in Scotland since forever.
