  1. TBH it's been a rollercoaster for me. I've only got as far as attempting to sort my bank accounts and going through this: https://www.gov.uk/moving-or-retiring-abroad
  2. But but .. caffeine is everyone's friend? Are you allergic? Me? I fit the definition of a caffeine addict. Thankfully it's legal. However whatever they do to decaffeinate tea causes me to have the most warped nightmare imaginable. Not sure what's going on there.
  3. Ewww decaf ... never again with that stuff!
  4. Probably the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bergamot_essential_oil they put in it. It's certainly an acquired taste. https://parkersbritishinstitution.com in Buffalo, NY has supplies of PG, Yorkshire and Tetley. However I've personally seen PG in places like Vons. I guess it's whatever the local stores are stocking.
  5. It really depends on your file. I went in at 9.40am for a 10am appointment. I didn't get out until 11.30am but my case was one of the more complex ones. Could be sooner, judging from the others around me. 2pm minimum should be ok. You have to think about the 10-15 min walk back to Vauxhall tube station and travel after.
  6. One final update, and I can't believe this ... I was told 7-10 working days for processing and then however long the courier needs. I went from AP to Issued in 24 hours. Today, I got an email from the courier saying they are delivering tomorrow. I think that's unheard of quick?
  7. We've had a few interview reports over the last week or so (mine included). Basically you've got the prep work done. Breathe. Relax. Go confident but honest. Your file will speak for itself. Good luck!
  8. @meji The relevant web page for your situation is now https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/waivers.html As others have stated this is not a DIY thing. My advice would be lawyer up. Take the time, research a few, have a free chat with a few to discuss your case and go from there.
  9. I might be the last of the courier ones then. I got my x-rays back in a Knightsbridge medical folder on a CD.
  10. That's why I was only looking! Yeah, going to need a serious professional on this.
  11. Oh this is why I learnt how to drink Starbucks tea. It's uniformly the same everywhere! Newcastle, London, Los Angeles, Zurich, Amman ... About the only time it got any worse was Barstow ...
  12. Well that convinces me to do two things: Move over in January 2020. Find a bloody good accountant! Looking at H&R Block atm. I am not going to have a simple time of it. I've three media projects that are likely to pay out as investments next year. Thanks for the advice. I've bookmarked that IRS page for review when it's not 10:40pm
  13. You mean 2019? Assuming so ... I will have finished my employment certainly by the time of moving, however I will continue to receive pay checks for 5 weeks after my job finishes because my pay is a month in arrears.
  14. Basically how relevant is this? https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/introduction-to-residency-under-us-tax-law That reads to me like it's best to delay my move until after Jan 1st 2020.
