Back in 2006 we've just found out where we are going to be for the next two years. It can be quite strange sometimes knowing that you are going to be uprooting your family but having no idea where you are going to.

Now we are waiting to be told where we'll be living (please let it be a house) although our first look at the new place will be when we turn up.

Would you move to a house you'd never seen?

That would be scary, but at least your family could be with you. :)

I can safely say "yes" because that's what I'll be doing this coming January!

I've done so when on my own, but on thinking the question through, with family its a wholely different picture.

In a word, yes.

But, having been through much the same thing a time or few, I'd be sure to pack everthing in good sturdy boxes, and put the boxes in plastic bags. Some roofs tend to leak a bit more than one would prefer. It's always good to be prepaired.

One of the reasons I binned it

I was "lucky" to spend most of my 12 years in based in the same camp which is great for continuity, however at the end there were changes afoot. Makes life very hard especially if you are on the property ladder (or not in most cases)

My best mate is bricking it when he leaves in about 3 years time, currently a WO2 and still living in a pad, ife, 2 kids and nothing saved up or prepared, no wonder he's praying for RSM and LE posting, buts thats just delaying the inevitible

Looking on the bright side, at least you don't have to find the place, which would involve dealing with letting agents/estate agents, who are all, without exception, evil.

So, is it a good place?

Will it have a pool?

Staff quarters?

In December I am moving to Dublin without having been to Ireland at all. I don't even know anyone who lives there.

Except, er, The Corrs.

So, I can say - YES.

Shirley - definitely.

D34D - same here - it doesn't make it easy though.

GU - cheers love.

Kath - good luck!

TheBoy - yes it's uprooting the kids that's getting harder.

Greavsie/Four Dinners - we're somewhere in between.

Zoe - the only real say is to leave. A lot of people do at about the point I'm at.

SPC Freeman - welcome and I guess things aren't so different over the pond.

Grimmy - we get a moving firm who come in and do it for us.

EggBanjo - we're hoping to get on the ladder in the next two years. It's weird when you want a six month tour (house deposit paid for).

Blaez - welcome, like I said to Zoe the only real choice is to leave (which I don't want to do).

Annie - it's a good town, we'll have to wait and see about the house.

Mr Angry - of course it will - didn't you know what your tax goes on!

NF Girl - a round of Guiness is on you then?

LouLou - most of the tours are two years, although that's changing for some people. Guess away!

CookieMonster - that sounds like a challenge!
