and so the search begins

So, after a few years of talking about it, it seems the final count down has begun! I have 6 weeks left at work, Mark has passed his final exams with flying colours, and (fingers crossed) the house goes through court a week tomorrow. Despite some people telling us that in the current market we would never sell, we were really pleased to be offered above the asking price AND get to stay rent free until end July - that was the clincher for us!
So, it seems we have trawled the internet for boats for MONTHS now and have narrowed it down to a couple of catamarans in Greece - Mark is heading down on Sunday to have a test drive, get a survey and hopefully put in an offer and I AM SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!
The plan is for Mark to go back down to Greece mid June and sail it back to Jersey, so we can kit it out and start our adventure from here. Hopefully, I can join him first week of July and we can do some serious stuff - like learning how to sail. It'll be good to do that whilst the kids are still in school so we can be super confident by the time they climb aboard!
