We're on the move ……………………….hopefully

After being on the market for about 6 weeks we have accepted an offer on the house and the offer we have put in for the property we like has also been accepted. 

So the ball has started rolling in all that is involved in moving house, the joy of dealing with estate agents, solicitors, surveyors, mortgages, building societies and all the fees involved. 

So if all things go to plan we will hopefully be moving in August sometime.  However the cynic in me says to be cautious and don’t book the time off just yet!!!!!  🙂

All Change

Well in some areas it is,…………….

 I have been released from the bishopric and have been given a new role in the Church.  I have been asked to serve on the Stake High Council with responsibility for Family History and also another unit in the Stake. As one of my areas is family history it seems appropriate to mention that we have been working on a family history section for our website for a little bit now, the beta release can be found at familyhistory.thegilmours.net.  I was waiting until we had some more info before putting a link on the website but now is as good a time as any. 

and in some areas it might be………………………….  we hope we have sold the house and we have found a place we like, so hopefully it will all happen…..

Back from America!

It is now nearly a week since we got back from our trip to America to see Aunty Jenny get married to Gerry. It was a really good trip as all of Lisa’s family were able to be there together for the first time in nearly 5 years. The wedding went really well even if the weather decided to get a little windy that day it certainly didn’t spoil the day at all. Jen looked fantastic and Gerry didn’t look too bad either. Some Pictures from the wedding

We were very kindly lent a house by the brother of one of good friends who we were desperate to see again but they couldn’t make it from Boston to Utah at the right time, which was the only dampner on an excellent holiday. So we stayed in a really nice part of Salt Lake on the Eastern side of the City near to the University of Utah or the U as it is called. I really liked the area, a very leafy suburb. We shared our time between staying in Salt Lake and heading down south towards Provo where Jenny lives. We were able to go and do the temple square thing and see all the sites aswell as go horse riding, swimming etc. Some Pictures from Salt Lake and Jenny’s , Here are also some pics from Dave & Claire’s website

We got to meet up with Matt & Bev again which was so good to hang out again with such good friends and Matt took Scott, Sarah and myself down to Arches national park for the day on Memorial day where we were able to do a bit of hiking and 4×4 driving off in the mountains. Some Pictures from our Trip to Arches.

While we were there also we even got to do a bit of diving which was quite unexpected, you can read about that over at the diving blog.
