I am cautiously optimistic...to quote my favorite movie, "The party of the first part and the party of the second part have commenced negotiations." Verbal agreement has been struck on the new rental property in London and now the devil is in the details, i.e. getting a lease agreement finalized in writing. Keep your fingers crossed all goes well and the contract is signed by end of month.
Now, turning my attention to the 6th move in 8 years. Gotta love it!
