lindylou78- thanks, I managed to find angelanathan and have a quick chat and the other threads, took some hunting tho.. good luck with the new car and the road trip, they are always fun, fingers crossed for you in january.
Crofty- thanks for that it would be super helpful, I've gotten most of the costs I need by phone I just want to make sure I haven't missed anything. How many appts have you had to have with the FS? Or it just the initial one?
Fingers crossed I can make it all happen soon.
