The flights are booked!!
I'm waiting to hear back from my absolutely fantastic Travel Agent that the accommodation is booked!!
I've ordered my currency!!
And I've still got a million and one other things to do before I go!!!!!! This afternoon's plan is to go shopping for the bits and pieces I need for all the Little Prince activities everyone has suggested. I've started packing and I've just got to check through what Summer clothes I've got and see if I need anything else, and I'll shop for that next Monday.
OH SH*T!!! I've just spoken to the DCSF and they haven't received anything from our Local Authority!!! I'm just waiting to get hold of the LA Team Leader and get her to fax or email a copy of the form to DCSF!!
ALMOST sorted out!! I've just spoken to the LA Team Leader and she is going to fax a copy of the form to the DCSF. And I'm going to get in touch myself to ask the DCSF to Special Delivery their Permission to Travel letter back to me!!!
Think its totally sorted out!! I managed to speak to the DCSF (miracle in itself!!) and they have received everything they need from our LA. BUT they have never heard of the Permission to Travel letter that a previous adopter told me I need?!?!
UPDATE:- Little bit more sorted!!! Hopefully!! I've spoken to the previous adopter who told me I needed this letter, and got the gist of the wording of it and the date it was sent to them and who signed it. I've emailed the DCSF with all this info and asked them to get this letter sent out to me Special Delivery ASAP!!! I'll be ringing them on Monday to check if they NOW know what I'm talking about!!!
OH SH*T 2!!! Chased up our Notary for the Power of Attorney I need to travel without Mr Messy and although it is confirmed as ready, the Embassy haven't returned his calls and so he doesn't know when that will arrive!!!
ITS SORTED OUT!!! Just heard from our Notary again and the letter is back with him and he's sending it Special Delivery so it will be with me TOMORROW :-)
Everything was going well WHY does this have to happen NOW!!!!!!!!!!
