    Default 44 sleeps till we fly

    Eeeek, not long to go.
    We've booked our removals company, decluttered a fair amount, and I've started sorting some of the stuff ready for the packers.
    Camping stuff and some shoes are all cleaned.
    The to do list seems to get longer every day.

    We're also squeezing in a last European ski trip and a bit of a road trip so 10 of those sleeps won't count as packing time.

    Good luck! Remember to make lists of all of the companies you need to contact/contracts you need to cancel and keep a record of when you've done it. Saves a lot of last-minute panics!

    Best of luck to you! It can definitely be a stressful time, but stay focused on the end result.

    Thanks everyone!
    Already very stressed and trying to wrangle my way out of everyone's "but we MUST have a last weekend lunch together" invitations We are having one big farewell bash though, which will help.

    Thanks Manks for the tip, we've contacted almost everyone we need to already, just a few left, and they're on our spreadsheet

    JagerLeaves, that makes me feel better, I did that task with all our DVD's and CD's about 2 weeks ago

    Had our farewell at the local pub today! Loads of people made it, and it was lovely to see everyone!!!! 17 sleeps till Heathrow!

    Packers come on Monday, and everything is cleaned and ready for them/ We just have to dismantle two wardrobes. We are debating flat packing our dining room table but it is a nightmare to do. Hoping they can deal with it whole.
