    Hi all, well the title says it all. Its our last night in blighty. The last few days have been manic, with packing (only taking bags no container) and repacking twice.Being as we visited oz to activate our visas were not entilted to a weight upgrade. so with a ebay special bag scale weve mangaed to get our lifes into 3 bags weight just under 80Kg (providing the scales are correct). The other important things that wouldnt fit into our hold lugage has been squashed into our hand luggage (only 7kg per person) so if this scale is incorrect then it could be a repack at the airport lol.

    All a bit scare but exciting at the same time and where really looking forward to our new life. My two girls are really excited, my eldest recons shes going to have a huntsman as a pet so it will eat all the other spider lol. We dont fly until tomorrow night so a day of waiting around just wanting to be on that aircraft.

    Those who have been here will know how it feels, those who havent its a emotion that is hard to put into words.

    Anyway enough of my rambleings and look forward to meeting the fourtunate ones that have already made the move, and the one that are fortunate enough to be following us out.

    Craig.

    So excited for you all. I almost had a few tears imagining the emotions you must be experiencing right now. Have a safe and stress free journey.

    I wonder if you will sleep tonight?

     

    Just spoke to my Uncle in Adelaide and he's saying the weather is perfect, really beautiful. Not envious at all as I hear the rain lashing at at window!

     

    Have a good trip down under! WAHOO!

    OMG, loved this post as we will be following you in late March and will be experiencing all your same emotions.

     

    Good luck to you and watch out as there might be a strange, round, orange thing in the sky you might not recognise!

    Aww the best bit is about to begin. All the best for the flight, i think its forcast rain next week, so bring the sunnies shorts a tee's and the thongs (you will get used to that one) it's forcast 1mm of rain so no worries.

    Good luck with the huntsman, if they are lucky they find a blue tongue lizard to keep the other things away (only joking)

     

    Have fun and a safe trip
