well we moved out of our house on Saturday and now are staying with my son and his wife ... quite a crowd but comfortable and not too much of a schlepp. Got rid of my car as well. Things are moving along. It's weird not having a house anymore ... never been in a situation like this before - feel a bit like a nomad. Trying to find a suitable rental in the UK now, been looking since August and we have found a few that are really nice ... but still think it's too early and should only look from mid November.
Transfer of our house sale went through today, so money should be in our account tomorrow.
