2 weeks to go

Oh dear….  there’s just 2 weeks to go before we fly out for Melbourne and then Brisbane…. and you should see the flat, actually no. you shouldn’t see it!

My husband is working long hours starting at like 2am and my diary is full with last minute clients. I was at a training all weekend til late, and this week am helping a good friend with her stand at the Publishing Expo in Earls Court, London. That is 2 days and one night away as well.

This is what I have to do… dig myself into the big cupboard that goes right across the wall in our bedroom and get out everything that has been stored in there in boxes of all shapes and sizes so I can see what is there and then decide what I am taking on plane, sending as unaccompanied luggage, sending by sea and what I am chucking out. This has to be drastic and involves not only shoes and clothes but golf clubs and god knows what else has been shoved in there to create space elsewhere. For instance I found a pile of knitting needles and my favourite knitting patterns and I havent knitted since Aiden was just about to be born 9 years ago. The shawl is still unfinished and I have promised to complete it for his 21st!

We came here to England, from Australia, just 10 years ago this week. We brought our 20kg each on the plane and 3 small boxes of unaccompanied luggage plus my sewing machine.  We need to condense back to something similar. Ouch!

So, I better get back to it all.
