It pretty much echoes what I've been thinking.

So I'd like to think that if they were no longer interested - they would have made this clear then.

The whole of this year has been geared around the move and relocation, so with it potentially around the corner now and being an organisational freak I'm pretty much pulling my hair out! 7 Weeks may seem like a long time for them - but to up sticks and say goodbye to everyone and everything I love is not long at all. Especially as my wife and I both have jobs out here. Even more so that I'm a consultant and take contracts as they come. When do I stop taking contracts??? Aaaaaauuuggghh!

I'll chase up with another email this afternoon and hope for the best.
Something else to keep in mind before you make your final decision and actually pick your entire life and move. What you see now is likely how things will operate with the company once you get here. So before making this big move, ask yourself are you willing to put up with a company that is run like this? If they are a start up, how likely is it that they will be successful? Do you trust that they will actually pay you on time and in full?
