Default Our flights are booked!!!!!!!!



We have booked our flights. I can't believe it. I feel really excited, and all of a sudden a bit sick at finally doing something concrete towards our move!

We are flying from Manchester on 19th October with Singapore Airlines, as I read on here they are good when you have little nippers.

Just got to decorate, de-clutter and sell house. Save some dosh. Look into areas, schools, kindergartens.......................... I had better get a wriggle on!

Great time of year to be flying and you've chosen one of the best airlines so that's a good start .

Busy few months ahead of you, sometimes it'll feel like a doing a jigsaw without knowing what the picture looks like or which pieces should be done first ...... but it does come right at the end .

I know! You just wonder where to start don't you!

I guess a list is going to be my best bet. I love lists. never get down to the bottom, but it makes you look organised!

Have you got to see your house too?

Hi Tan

Thanks!

Yes, you're right. Once they are booked, you just feel that that is it. you are defenitely coming. I just thought about Hubbys Nan who is in her 80,s and felt sad that he amy not see her again. I haven't thought about her up until now. Strange.

When are you heading to hamilton then?

We too would be leaving Hubby's gran....and kids great gran Is a very hard concept to get your head round so understand your feelings entirely.

Leave on the 20th May with Singapore and have a stop over. Arrive 23rd

...and all this whether house sells or not

Good luck with the planning!

Very philosophical reply
I feel a bit like that just now, heads all over the place and no matter how i try to plan things none of it seems to be a very good plan just hope someone up there looking down knows what the picture looks like cos i feel like im going round in circles (bit like the wee guy on the left).

Hi nearly Nurse,

I know just what you mean. It's hard to plan for somewhere you have never been, and something you have never done before!! It's not for the faint-hearted thats for sure! We are a brave bunch aren't we!

What area are you looking at?
