:scared::pray2: I think you have most of it covered Chris! It tough isnt it trying to remember everything you need to do .... a bit like thinking youve missed something out ouf your suitcase when packing for the holidays only on a MUCH BIGGER SCALE !!!

Best of luck with the move and Im sure you will be putting your feet up with a nice glass of wine or something similar very soon !

Sue :love:

:smokin:Will this do...lol!? Well, you have been busy and organised! It's surprising where the energy comes from isn't it when you're excited about something. I can't think of anything you've missed. You must be counting the hours as well...lol?


Good look and I hope Spain gives you what you want.

God you are trying hard this Summer X ! :D:D:D
Well as you know Sue....I hate to see newcomers here make the same mistakes that others did in the past!

Statistics show that not one of the people who ended up going back had a nice website and a donkey!

And here's me....nice website....nice donkey.....and I'm still here!

What can we learn from this? :)
