Two weeks to go

Why is it that the closer you get to departing the slower the time goes?!

The gorgeous Erin, in anticipation of our arrival, has sent a list of essential requirements for us to transport to her including:
  • 65 small (!) koalas complete with boomerang and lifesavers cap ( and dare I say it made in CHINA!)
  • 2 Australian cookbooks for the teachers she has worked with (what exactly is Australian cuisine anyway? Who knew that Masterchef would result in a plethora of cookbooks!).
  • her reading glasses ( obviously not a lot of reading going on for the last 6 months)
  • a tube of vegemite ( for one of the hostel kitchen staff who loves it)
  • Jigsaw puzzles for the kids (they don't have them in South Africa???)
  • books for the kids (ditto)
  • connecter pens for the kids (ditto)
  • ipod headphones (ditto)............
So by my calculations, once I have packed all of these essential items I will only have space for my toothbrush, 1 T-shirt and a pair of shorts: the rest of my clothes I will have to wear onto the plane I think!

Your impatient correspondent,
