Thats great news - bet you feel over the moon
loads of luck, Lisa
Your fabulous Mum
You're so lucky to have such a wonderful mum. She obviously loves you to bits to let you go (and to help in the process). My Dad knew he had lung cancer when I left for the UK and never said a word, as he knew I would never have got on the plane. Hopefully she'll have many happy holidays with you when you get to Australia. I just hope I'll be that brave when it's my turn to let my kids go.

The kids are excited as they will see all their friends go back to school and they aren't. We leave a week and a half after they go back and as they said their goodbyes at the end of ;ast term it doesn't seem fair to send them back for such a short time. Just got to get them into a school quickly when we get there as they are already driving us mad!!!
We have booked with Singapore airlines and it was dead simple. Booked online then had to phone up and book Joe on as he is under 2 and you can't do that online. If anything the lady on the phone was too helpful and complicated things but got it sorted in the end. Just got to book the transit hotel in Singapore airport now. Also got to find travel insurance but struggling to find a company that will do one way insurance. Any suggestions???

When I returned to Oz last week I used Down Under Insurance (offices in Oz and the UK) they were able to do one way travel insurance although their minimum period is for 5 days still worked out very cheap though. I did it all on line so don't have a phone number to hand but can look back for it if you need it

Good Luck Tracey Pete and kids.
Cant wait to catch up with you all again. Seems like a lifetime ago since we last saw you in Lincoln. Happy-jools and the clan.
Wooohhoooo, you go for it galpal!!! What a fab mother. Hope to see you on the other side. When I visited Adelaide I go my insurance via Travelmood, over the phone, I find it easier over the phone. I booked my flight with them as well, you should be able to book insurance with them though.
Hope you have a great flight, keep us posted to your trip etc and let us know how it all goes.
Ive had a quick quote for about £120 for 4 of us, does that sound right?
