The Final Countdown...

Picture courtesy of   
If after that title you are now singing a song by a big-haired Swedish rock band, I do apologise!

A swift update as I shouldn't really be on here, we have pages of German contracts to study this evening...  Yes, with just over two weeks to go until we bid Denmark adieu, we have official confirmation that the house* in Munich is ours to move into!  Hallelujah!   Nothing like leaving things to the last minute, especially when the removal company is desperate for an address to eventually deliver your belongings to!  

(*NB.  This is obviously not the actual house.... It is though, I think you will agree, a very pretty Bavarian house, and considering that I didn't take any pictures of the real house the other day, it gives you an idea of the local style at least!)...

Fifteen days to go and counting!  We have a family wedding overseas inbetween, so our new adventure commences at the beginning of November.   I am hastily touching wood whilst I type this, but I think that things are slowly, slowly beginning to fall into place!...


  1. Oh I started singing that song as soon as I read it and I have a feeling it will be there all day LOL I am not embarrassed to admit that i have that song in my itunes.

    Looking forward to reading about your new life when it starts

  2. Thanks Kellogsville :)

    The Expat Wife, thank you! Yes it's not the worst eighties song in the world. I remember a friend of mine MADE me go to a Bon Jovi concert about 15 years ago and I was most disappointed that they didn't sing this, then she pointed out it was a different group entirely... waste of £20 that was! :)

  3. I know that song by heart and don't even know who it's by! Very best of luck, that makes two of the initial Brit Mums comment group moving this season, I'm wondering if it's contagious?

  4. Thanks Mari... maybe it is contagious... Would you mind if it was?!?!? :)

  5. 2 weeks? wow! how exciting and nerve wracking too!!! before you know it your new house will be your home... take care x

  6. Thanks hopefulmummy! 2 weeks and far too much to do! :) xx

  7. It seems your new adventure will begin when mind over here is about to end.. Will look forward to reading all about it.

    Viel Glück xx

  8. You do realise that when I need help with German I am going to be asking you with that sign off don't you? So excited for you, it was meant to be! Emma :) xx

  9. Sp pleased you got the house you mentioned last time.
    Best of luck with packing, wedding etc xx

  10. Thanks so much Trish! I am going to need all the luck I can get I think! Emma xxx
