What an emotional few days its been, I can't believe we have actually got to thois point where we seem to be next in line for the plane!!
Since Christmas day its been almost a continual stream of goodbyes, ending today with our parents.
We are still sorting out the last few binbags of stuff in the house to go to the tip in the morning, then at lunchtime we'll start the journey to Heathrow being taken by our friends, in 2 cars - half the family in each car. Tea at Heathrow, a look around the shops then time to get on board ready to fly at 8.50pm.... and fingers crossed the little ones will sleep - particularly the littlest one who will be occupying my lap for the next 26 hours or so
Any way, better get stuffing more binbags.... hang in everyone waiting for Visas, you wont beleive how quickly it flies by once you've been given the OK!
And a last 'thank you SO much' from the UK to everyone who has helped in any way at one time or another on this site... all those pearls of wisdom have been invaluable getting us to this point.
See you on the sunny side :D
