I thought I had better do a quick update between the chaos of packing and our imminent departure on our two week road trip on Friday.
The last week or so has been a little stressful...The removal men came on Thursday and in the chaos, our passports managed to get packed! (Something we have since discovered many people have done!)
As a result over the last 4 days there has been much talk of getting to Cyprus on a 'NATO travel order' and altering the route of our road trip to keep us in Canada, but thankfully after a 5 hour round trip to Calgary, Jim has managed to get them back. Would you believe they were in the first box he looked in?
We are also selling off everything we can't take with us. I was particularly sad to see our dishwasher go today, but as we only have about 17 days left when we will actually be in the house, it had to go!
Blackie the cat is very unsettled by it all. As I have mentioned in this blog before, she had had at least 4 homes before we got her when she was about 3 years-old. I am still not quite sure what the best thing to do for her is when we move. We have had a quote to ship both her and Macy the dog, but the flight to Cyprus is long and potentially stressful for an animal (particularly a cat I think) We would love to take her, but I need to be sure we are doing it for her best interests and not ours. I could probably find another family for her in the village here and then we could rehome another cat in Cyprus... But in my mind, neither option is particularly satisfactory...
