Its happened !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At last we have moved out of our house in Sheffield and into rented accommodation in Shetland. It was quite something , we are glad that we had arranged for the removal company to pack all our things, it took 4 men 1.5 days to get all our things into the containers which will be stored in Sheffield until we buy a house, which we hope will be soon.
                                                                                            We are now on cloud 9

It was a sad occasion to say goodbye to all our family and friends but at least we managed to get them together for our leaving do, it actually turned out to be 6 separate leaving do's. Its not the last time we will see Sheffield as we will be back for visits when money allows.

                                                                                               Its fireworks at last

Now we have arrived it seems as though we are on an extended holiday. We are due to register with a doctors in Levenswick and also with a dentist in Lerwick although for national health treatment it is generally 5 years (YES 5 YEARS!!!!) to wait for a check up, so we are hoping that we have no problems. they will see you if you are in pain.
                                                                           A sign that we are going in the right direction

We are actively seeking to buy somewhere asap and have put the feelers out and have contacted the five estate agents in Shetland who will keep us informed when some come on sale in the areas we are looking at.

  1. Congratulations on being so close to attaining your dream. It is ours too, but we have the last two children at University just now so realistically it is now more likely to be something we will have to wait another 3 or 4 years to make the jump from Nottingham. In the meantime we are counting down the weeks till our summer visit and hoping to fit in a winter visit too in the next year or two. Good luck with the house hunting.
