Well it's now nearly here, two weeks to go before we fly off for three months in Australia and New Zealand. :)
Since booking the tickets in January it's been planning, researching, saving and it's all finally kicking in that it's actually happening! Scary!
Andy has been working away in his landscaping job and and I have been doing various things to save, working in the florist for a while, setting up a little business selling planted arrangements and last week doing a car boot. I managed to negotiate a good deal on my old Hornby train set which I haven't used in years :)
I think I am 'over organising' now though making sure I have got everything covered! But I need to make sure I'm prepared with my medication & diet. Managing eating gluten-free will be my main challenge as I have managed fine at home and ok in Europe but Australia & New Zealand are unknown territories for me being Gluten Free!! Hopefully I should be ok :)
So I'll try and keep this up to date as much as possible to let everyone know what we've been up to and where we are. Apologies if it's not updated for a while though ...
As for now I'll leave it for a couple of weeks as no big travel stuff will be happening until Saturday 19th April at 22.05 (hopefully 22.05- if Heathrow's not still in chaos!) when we fly out to Singapore, then Darwin and finally arrive in Cairns on Monday 21st 8.20am local time...
