Well today I have started packing the cases. Can't believe it has come round so quick. We leave the UK on Saturday - our flight is at 10.05pm.
I am knackered (already!) from organising and last few days of 'goodbyes' have got me quite upset. Aaron, my eldest (5), has his last day at school tomorrow - I know I am going to cry in the playground! He has some friends coming round afterwards to try and distract him from being too upset. He was really excited about the whole thing but these last few weeks he has been saying he is scared and doesn't want to leave his friends. I am having visions of having to drag him on to the plane kicking and screaming.
The other two, James (2) and Leo (1) are too young to know what is going on. I'm feeling absolutely terrible about taking them away from my husband's parents (for those that don't know, my parents are in Glenelg!). I can't even think about those goodbyes on Saturday.
This all seems negative what I have written but we are all still excited at the same time! We are really looking forward to seeing our family out there and to starting our new adventure. Just have to get past this horrible bit first.
