Cannot believe it is finally here!!! We have all been going through the whole range of emotions and saying goodbye to good friends on a daily basis has been terrible. The kids have been very emotional and each time they have left a friend they have said they do not want to go to Australia, leaving us feeling guilty for taking them away.
We know in our hearts that it is the right decision and have absolutely no thoughts of changing our minds but just want to let people know what to expect as we never thought it would be quite so heartbreaking. I dont really think we realised how much we think of some people until we have said goodbye and it surprised us even more how much they think of us. We have yet to say our goodbyes to our closest friends and relatives and really are dreading it but again, we know we are doing the right thing.
We are now busy packing and bickering on a hourly basis and dont understand where all the stuff we have got has come from. We are now on our seventh case and we have still got masses of things to pack.
Cant wait to get over there now and get settled into our new life just wish we could bring everyone with us.
Hope this post does not sound like we are moaning just wanted to prepare everyone for the big moment.
