Not the tv show/film (though, if you haven't seen it you really should - high-larious), but me and the boy.
On Friday we both had our last days at work. Mine was definitely bittersweet. As much as I disliked the job I loved (most of!) my colleagues, and I will miss them so much. In the four years I worked there I have seen such a change in myself and their support and friendship had a lot to do with it. I know we'll keep in touch.
After the emotion and fun of Friday (they got me a hat with corks on it and a blow up Kangaroo - what more could a girl need?!) Saturday (my birthday) was spent packing up, moving out and cleaning the flat. Our official move out date isn't until 30th but we wanted a head start plus we knew we'd want to spend time back up in the 'Shire with my parents for a few weeks before we left.
The past few days have been spent at my sister's house looking after my Bunny Niece (Phoebe - very cute, but very naughty) and Bunny Nephew (Rupert - not so naughty, very cute) whilst she's been away which we've both loved.
We've also kicked some travel list arse by getting monies transferred to Oz, sorting out banking requirements here in the UK, trips to the Tip to get rid of all the clutter and trips to the Doctors/Nurse to sort out those last minute injections. Happily we also managed to squeeze in time to make a dent in Season 3 of 'True Blood' :).
All in all it's been quite a productive few days, which is good, as it is distracting us from this fact: that we are not just on annual leave, that we are, in fact, now unemployed. How freaking scary is that?!!! And through choice would you believe?!!! During an economic downturn!!!
Ahem. I digress...
The point is, as much as we're enjoying this time off before the 'big event', I am also ready to get going. Saying goodbye is going to be horrendous (especially if Friday is anything to go by) but we are both so eager to go. This whole trip has been a year in the planning and I can already, even now, see how much it is going to be worth it. It's hard to explain but even after just a few days we seem to be in 'holiday mode', laughing a lot as if a weight has been lifted off our shoulders.
This Saturday is our official leaving party in Bristol. All of our friends and family are coming down and I'm really looking forward to it. It's sure to be a fantastic night.
