- kids to school
- puppy to vets for last shot
- hair appointment
- start packing me suitcase ! I keep putting it off....
- make sure I have train ticket/plane ticket/passport in handbag

I think that's about it!

I stayed up rather late again last night, I didn't intend to but got carried away with the sewing AGAIN... I so want to finish the top of the quilt before I go away.....might even get it done today!!!

Now lets get going, and NO MISHAPS today ok? Just have to be more careful!
Been to town....puppy has had his last vaccinations, so he's safe now. Spent 2.5 hours at the hairdressers... fell asleep on their couch while the colour was processing! Looking forward to sleeping on the plane tomorrow! YES.
Nearly time to go get the kids, the day is just flying by ... and I still havn't finished the top section of the quilt, BUT IT WILL HAPPEN TODAY! I can't wait to put a photo up!

MRS C: here is a photo of the Flat Stanley's with the Postal Lady ...at the Post Office, saying goodbye to the parcel that is on it's way to your family! They wanted to come home until I told them they were coming to Melbourne with me... so they decided to stay a bit longer!

It will take between 24 and 28 days for this parcel to reach you all.

End of day: I am finally packing! Feeling a bit excited now! I hate flying too... the takeoffs and landings really shit me! I'm hoping to sleep during the flight... so I'm not too tired to enjoy my holiday! OOOO I am going to get to sleep in! No kids to bug me! BLISS.

NSV: Feeling good! NITE NITE.


  1. Hey Chris, I know a few people that are going away on great vacations in the next few weeks. So far no one has agreed to let me stow away in one of their suit cases! I'd love to go to Australia!
    Can I use your suitcase? I'll pay the check in fee for the bag I swear it!

    LOL j/k, have a great time!

  2. Counting down the sleeps Chris... haha

  6. Pack your bags NOW!!!! If you wanna stay up all night sewing then at least you can sleep on the plane tomorrow. Put your tickets in your bag now. then it's done.
