Six sleeps to go

I'm trying really hard not to get too excited about our departure because it seems to make time stand still (even though it's only six more sleeps, 5 days, 9 hours and... I'm not soooo much of a freak to work out minutes and seconds, nor is my fuzzy brain able to cope with that sort of mathematical equation right now!)

There are loads of things I'll miss about New Zealand but the main one is the comfort of my friends and family. I think this is the thing I will struggle with most.

My only survival strategy at this point is to block it out completely, which seems to work a treat (most of the time). I've been trying super hard not to think about leaving my darling kitties, but as time creeps by, it's becoming quite difficult.

My other plan is to keep busy which shouldn't be a problem, seen as though there still seems to be two hundred and seventy three things left to do on our list and three new things appearing for every one we cross off!

Wish me luck!

A Minor Glitch

It's been an eventful couple of weeks.

I survived the final assembly on the last day of school where teachers, children and parents bid me farewell. It was actually really lovely, and no where near the terrifying ordeal I had built it up to be in my mind. Silly old me.

I managed to pack up my things and farewell my first and only classroom :( bit sad closing the door on that chapter,but very excited to be opening another!

We've had a small issue to sort out for Bighead's business, which has set our trip back a few weeks. It was actually a blessing in disguise, as we both feel a bit more relaxed now that we have extra time to get things set up properly before we head off.

I still have heaps more stuff to sell, a baby shower to organise, Bighead's new employee to train, and a jumble sale to sort out. Lucky I'm unemployed!

Stay tuned for new departure date...
