hello all - checking in from Sydney - long, long, long delayed in Dublin 1.5 delayed in Abu Dhabi 1 hour - total in the air 22 hours - plus a 4 hour bus journey to get to Dublin...and to top it off I can't sleep in planes or buses (or cars!!) so I'm feeling a wee bit spaced out and a bit sick - it's 5.08 Thursday afternoon and I've been awake since Monday (didn't sleep well Monday night)...but dropped LMF off to her college - she was met with the welcome team who were LOVELY!  They took the newbies to the banks to set up local accounts...took them to the cellular people to set up their phones....took them to their house and got them all settled in and are taking them out to dinner tonight!  Totally set my mind at ease.

*falls onto pillow* will sightsee next few days when we come round...long haul is not for pansies!!

Morning all - last (half) day of work before our big trip starting tomorrow....very emotional day yesterday - LMF had to say goodbye to a lot of people...a bunch of her friends, all the guys at church, some family members.  The Big Good Bye is tomorrow where she says bye to BGD and Jenn and family...this is hard! :'(

In mundane news - I've got a pink hot water bottle in my lap as it's so cold here!!

Morning - we've had about 8 inches of snow fall....sitting in work to see if anyone gets in (we have a 4x4 so we got here no bother)  3 cancellations so far but I got 2 of them filled.  Hey ho - we'll see how we get on

(I never thought about allergies Bookie...but I did have a man-flu at the start of this so I just think it's just lingering)

Morning all - my blue bin got blown over last night - and the brown bin (the teeny tiny one!) is now no more as Murray decided it was a chew toy...RIP brown bin.

In work today - we need the money!  Turns out the apartment LMF is going to is unfurnished (not even a bed!!) so we basically have to kit out her apartment when we arrive (we're going to vacuum pack her duvet and bed linen over this way and take it with us.) 

10 days till we go to OZ!  Erhmehgherd!!

Morning all and Happy New Year...hope it's a great one for all of us.

14 days to Oz (makes me feel all of these......mainly cos LMF will be leaving us for a year...)

I hope this year to get fitter (so, so, so unfit at the minute) and finally lose some weight...and to get a better handle on our finances.
