15th April 2013 is our planned leaving date. I wanted to wait until the school Easter holidays had finished so looking ahead that was the Monday after that. I'm quite glad we have a planned date, makes it feel real somehow!
So for the next 6 months we'll be saying 'this time next year we'll be doing xyz and this time next year we'll be sat on a beach'. I may bore people before long ;o)
Ooh beaches :O)
A year still feels so long away but when I think about clearing the house of all the stuff then I know it will go by soon enough and I'll feel like I want more time! This will be the hard bit when we're going without and keeping all our money to one side and trying to declutter. Yawn ;o)
Speaking of which, I made a bit of progress with my crud clearing venture (CCV :o)) and sold 5 things on a home ed buy and sell group. So that is 5/1000 and £21/£1000 ;o) I'm laughing at the notion that I have 1000 things I could sell, 1000 bits of rubbish I could throw out maybe, but to sell? I'm pretty sure I will struggle, but it might be an interesting thing to track! James is up for doing some car boots (I'm not sure he's *ever* done one in his life!) so we'll try and get one in for maybe June and then another at the end of Summer. There are a few all year round ones so might fit in a third before we leave the house. I have lots of local friends who know all about car boot sales round here so I shall have to pick their brains. Any money we make is going to be extra towards a better campervan and isn't being counted on. I might even make a page on here with things to sell, which might work if I start plugging the blog and sharing it round. Something to work on.
