What would you start doing today, if you thought you were going to move from Boston to London in September 2012?

My wife and I are beginning to think about moving to London in August/September 2012. We would both be 32 years old. She would be going over as a PhD student (full time enrolled in a UK university). My plans are up in the air, but could be either as a fellow PhD student, or as a full time professional employee.
We would probably plan on staying 5 years, then moving back to the US.
She would be over on a student visa. Quick scans of the UK immigration scheme say that I’m qualified for a work visa. So far, that’s about as much as we’ve thought about this!
So: If you were moving from Boston to London in 24 months, what would you start thinking about now, and what actions would you start taking to best prepare yourself for the transition?
