Last post from England.. we fly in 10 hours!

    Recommended Posts

    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.:wubclub:

     

    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 :arghh:

     

    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

    Have a good flight. Make sure you're wearing light clothes when you land or you will frazzle in all this heat.

    If you can mess up the time now wait till you get here and you can not work out the time difference back to the UK when you want to phone a friend!!

    It gets worse when they phone you in the middle of the night.....

     

    See you soon!

    Hi Hazel

    Just wanted to wish you all the best on your last few hours in the uk. I remember all the madness on the last day before we set of on our journey and it was pure chaos. It was nice to just get on the plane to sit back and chill for a while. It will all seem a bit of a rollercoaster for a while when you land and try and sort everything out at once. Just take your time with everything. It will also be rather emotional for a while, but then you will start to appreciate Adelaide and all it has to offer. It truly is a lovely place and I truly feel blessed to live here. Loved Wolverhampton as it was where I was born, but makes me appreciate Adelaide all the more. Lots of luck to you and your family and Enjoy your new life here you will be truly amazed.
