Feels like this whole packing business is taking FORfreakingEVER!!  However by then end of tomorrow with a bit of crossed fingers and fairy dust we should have everything out of the house and be ready for last scrub-down and carpet clean.  Then off to crash with the wonderful Mike and Anna for a couple of days to actually organise our new upwardly mobile accommodation, then we’re off!  We put Narelle on the plane today, which was very sad as all her help has been majorly appreciated – without it we would be so far into the panic zone it would not be funny.
