Making It Happen
We had set our ideal moving date as the end of April 2008 as we wanted to spend the summer renovating the property we bought as the dream home we both fell in love with had no drainage, one cold water feed to the house, a measly 10amp electricity supply, no heating and needed a new roof… Oh yeah, it was also made of mud and straw!
So we are now somewhere in November 2007 and we had a wedding to plan, family to convince that we didn’t need committing a house to sell and perfectly good jobs to quit. We decided on a small and intimate wedding ceremony at a beautiful chapel in Gretna Green with the most wonderful chaplain who I swear was the influence for The Vicar Of Dibley. Settled in to a harsh DIY regime at our house in the UK before we put it on the market and explained to our employers that we were leaving, as you can imaging during this period of time we had a million questions to answer… None of which we really knew the answer to, it was an adventure and it would not be an adventure if you know what was going to happen!
