In the beginning of May we have spent two weeks in England to prepare ourselves further. We have had a wonderful time.
We had hoped to view some rental houses, but now our house has not definitively been sold we decided against that. We did see a letting agent to inform about our possibilities as foreigners. We were told that we can rent a house, but that we will have to pay the rent 6 months up front. Also, the rental period will initially be 6 months. Apart from this the usual terms apply.
Another important event was our visit to the River School, the school we hope to send our children. First we visited the school for an interview with the Director and a tour. The next day Vanya had a taster day in Reception class, whilst Issa spent the morning in Nursery. We are convinced the River School is a good choice for our children. We will be informed about the admission, sofar we expect no difficulties will arise.
Of course our trip was also a chance to relax and we did. On the farm where we stayed a calf had been born that we could see within 15 minutes after birth. The children enjoyed the farm animals, but were also a bit afraid at times. Feeding the pig was very adventurous!
