I am so happy at hearing this!

It's wonderful that you and your beloved will be together, and that you will get the chance to explore England as well!

Will you be partying to celebrate, and shall we party here as well?

Now: will C_ris and his compatriots consider throwing a welcoming party? That's the bare minimum, I reckon, that our sweet AnnMarie needs. No?

Good news

Tips for packing - write a list of what is in every box, bag, suitcase etc. It's a pain at the time, but believe me as a serial mover - it's well worth it at the other end

Oh don't I know it!

Right now, we cannot afford to ship even half our stuff over. I will be packing up what we don't HAVE to have, and leaving it here with my mother in marked boxes. I am also making HEAVY use of those SPace Bags! The cool thing is, I can put cds/tapes/knicknacks and little boxes (Jewlery) in those with the clothing, and they will be safe on the suitcases.

Excellent!

When's the big date? We should have an extended party here until then.

Such is life, dear friend.

You can have fun buying books when you get there, you know that?

May I recommend, in the verse, the Dowson.

Think of it this way:

You books are delayed and not fled
forever, and now, if you don't lose your head,
you can find books of all sorts of kinds,
maybe those mentioned in a Meeting of Minds,
maybe those rarities, poets and such
giving you pleasures you've not had that much.
Think not of loss, and sorrow, and pain,
think instead of what you stand to gain.

Do you want some E E "Doc" Smiths' Anne-Marie? I brought some and didn't like them much-not my sorta book?

I rather they had a good home that sit mouldering in my bookshop!

Charity shops are good here if you want good books... Got all my Asimov's that way!

I'll happily take them off your hands, if you'll mail them to me. I have always been partial to the Doc. PM me if you want my snail mail addy.
