So I'm all packed! Amazingly everything fits in and the only things I appear to have forgotten to do are to cancel my LoveFilm subscription and contact lens delivery, not too bad! Think I have everything, bag only weighs 11.8KG which I am very happy with.
Had a lovely evening of Doctor Who, X Factor, text messages, phonecalls, wine and gin :-) I'm nervous and excited all at the same time, a bit teary but I'm sure I'll be fine when I'm on my way and six months will fly by!
Will see you in 48hrs Bangkok
