We sold our house and the completion date was the 17 December 2009. Over the week or two leading up to it, we put all our effects into storage just keeping the minimum that we would need to live in the caravan (together with my essential scrapbooking stash). The caravan had already been put on site at Greenhill Leisure Park. We moved out on the 16 December and got to the caravan at 10.55pm just in time as the gate closes at 11.00pm!
This now meant there was only minimal housework to be done - mmm this does have its pluses :):)
