Friday, 5 July 2013



Friday night is curry night, but Jo is out with Archie at a party, so whilst I'm waiting for them to get home, a quick update on this week's developments. Jo and I have been very busy during our first week of unemployment, we haven't done much packing yet, but progress has been made in the following areas:

  • Renting Stonestack. We are close to agreeing a contract for someone to rent Stonestack. The developments this week have been a little surreal (cant say more than that in public I'm afraid) but hopefully we will have a tenant signed up next week. We met our mortgage provider this morning and it sounds fairly straight forward for us to convert to a buy to let mortgage, so that's another thing that should be sorted in the next week.
  • Moving. We have confirmed that our container is going to be packed on 15 and 16 July, so we need to get on with packing next week.
  • Toby. Toby is going on a visit to a potential new owner next Friday, and if that goes well, he won't come back. It will be a sad day, but good to have found a new home for him.
  • Visa. I have finally got the documents needed for my visa application attested by the UAE Embassy in London, and they are on their way to BDO in Dubai now so the application can be submitted.
