T minus 10 days (and we are now homeless)

D day is approaching fast. We are now both unemployed (as of yesterday); homeless (as of today); and very significatly poorer than we were three months ago. But we do have the van of dreams; a set of Michelin Agilis 81 beefy tyres; and visas for Uzbekistan, Tadjikistan, Russia and Pakistan. So that's OK then.

Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary. Michael is celebrating in traditional style by doing yet another bike race. We then have a week or so until we leave London, during which time we have to finalise various bits of paperwork, pack the van and say farewell to everyone. With only 10 days to go, it is suddenly all starting to feel a bit more real.......
