We have to be in Perth by mid January as Kate is starting school on Friday the 28 Jan. She's not looking forward to it at all. She's really settled at the local comp but we're trying to look at the bigger picture and we're really hoping, along with everyone else that's been through or going through this precess, that Oz can give us all a better future. As ever time will tell.
We haven't booked our flights yet as we are just waiting for a completion date on our house we're hoping for the 14th Jan. The packers are coming in on the 12th and 13th of January to pack all our worldly belongings which to be honest is mainly made up of pure rubbish to anyone else but to us it's all our memories. Then the container arrives on the 14th and we wave 'Goodbye' to our stuff as it embarks on a sea journey across to the other side of the world.
We're still not ready for Christmas. Every year I promise I'll be better organised next year but I never am. Who know next year I just might keep my promise.
I've just been to watch Kate's Christmas ballet routine at her dance school which in the middle of Nottingham city centre and to say it's the last Saturday before Christmas it's very quiet. Seems very strange. Is the recession that bad? Mind you it's bloody freezing so perhaps some folk aren't as daft as me and have decided not to brave the freezing temperature. This weather makes me understand why the Russians drink so much vodka. Mmmmm nice idea!
Anyway, we would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
