My husband and I were currently short of money but had hatched a plan to move to the south of France to start a new life in just under two weeks. We were discussing: (a) banking our giant glass beer bottle of small change; (b) how to cash in my husband’s (Roman) pension; and (c) how to partner with Virgin Galatic to do yoga retreats in space. All foolproof plans!

But when you are one week and four days away from moving your entire life, two little boys and cat to another country your brain starts to do funny things and we started to panic.
