What I should be doing:
- Walking around the house with rubbish bags collecting garbage (basically, everything that is left barring some furniture)
- Finishing the nightmare packing (trying to live out of suitcases for the next 2 or 3 months until our shipped goods arrive and we manage to find things in the boxes – I’m not even trying to keep within Air Transat limits of 23 kilos, I’m actively trying to heave as much stuff in as possible to 2 pieces of baggage and just pay for the excess which will be massive)
What I am doing:
- Drinking coffee
- Watching This Morning
- Eating Cadbury Fruit and Nut
(okay, I might have gotten a few things done this morning other than that)
We spent the weekend having quality time with Mark’s family. We took Mark’s mum and stepdad out for a posh lunch (read: overpriced and pretentious, we’ve had better for less) here to say thanks for all they have done for us. Sunday was a roast lunch as Mark’s aunts’ house where we hung out with the cousins and Katie and Oliver played and I forgot my camera again. We’ve got dinner again at his mum’s tonight – we were going to have a take out anyway as it’s more and more difficult to cook with less and less in the kitchen.
So this is it – wish us a decent journey. It’s all I can ask for, decent. I’m going to overdose on Bach Rescue Remedy before the flight hoping that I don’t end up in tears again due to Oliver screaming etc. And Mark and the animals come on Friday – he might have more hassle at the airport but at least he gets to watch the inflight entertainment!
