My DH is taking his IELTS today. Why do I feel so guilty! If I could have done it for him I would have...honest! He didn't seem too impressed when I spoke to him at lunch time. I'm just praying he get's the scores we need so he doesn't have to put himself through it again.

Have to get up at 5 am to collect my brother from the airport.

 

It's all good. He is coming over for a week. He worked as a manager of a big removal firm in San Francisco for 10 years. He will hopefully know how to condense 700 cubic feet into 500 without losing too much gear. I shall have to sweeten him with the black stuff and a few meetings with Mr Jameson. (single malt):wubclub:

Dropped off a load of art work at the auctioneers. Sorry to see it go but it won't cope with the climate in Queensland. :-( Measured the cubic footage ourselves (the quotes said 700) and we can get well under 500 for 2 x 250 crates. Cheaper. Time for a birthday barbie now to get in the Oz spirit :cool:

Go together like fish and chips Millie,good call! even just the ordinary triple distilled send's some of the "better" single malts for the Liverpool Echo imo,i know i'm easily led/corrupted when presented with such a wonderful pairing:notworthy:

 

Just thought i'd drop in and wish everyone all the best with their various Aus headaches............

Well part of our chattles thats going to Melbourne has been packed and put into storage (a BIG tip make sure you keep the tea/coffee/cakes/butties in good supply, as you get the best out in return out of the removal team), We have told our employers we are going, but not handed notice in just yet, as the visa paperwork has not arrived yet, also found more items for the car boot, and think not many more weekends for them to be held..
