Sorry for the silence! Packing up the house/getting rid of possessions was quite difficult by the end. But we got out with around 15 minutes to spare! Although I admit there was some last minute ditching of clothes to make space in our bags (charity shops in our small town did well).
We're now in Kuala Lumpur for a few days. It is lovely and warm. I am feeling jetlagged but also so pleased to not be sitting on the floor of our furniture-less yet messy house, which is what I was doing a few days ago.
I'm going to miss the UK a lot. But I'm also excited about going home too. I will try to post more while I'm here in transit!
