Good luck with the house sorting. My mother has been slowly trying to sort out her house; it's 3 years this week since my father died, her health's not great and the plan is to sell up and move back to the UK where my sister and I now live. She's found it really slow going but some of it is sounding promising now. My aargh was when talking with her earlier this week I realised she's starting to think in terms of being able to move around Christmas, which would be lovely - only for complex inheritance tax planning reasons, we've been advised to coordinate her move with the tax year and she had forgotten, what with everything else she's been doing.
We need to work out what to do for her (big) birthday in June, too.
