Tearing my hair out with DNS changes on a website

Having a frustrating morning trying to move one of my websites from a free Weebly hosted account to the proper domain name for the business (www.podcreateuk.weebly.com to www.podcreateuk.co.uk - don't bother clicking the link, at the moment neither are working!).

The frustrating thing is that neither the web host : Weebly or 123 Reg who look after my web domains have particularly clear destructions for pointing the right DNS address at the right host (or whatever ..... my web design skills are good but I'm still just a dabbling layperson).
As a result I think I have it set up right - I have the advantage of having done this process before between 123 and Weebly so have the template of another site to look at and compare but still the changes don't propagate instantly so I might have to wait up to 48 hours to see if the damn thing is working or not.

Probably should have waited and done this at the weekend !
