Where I stayed

It's 4 days till lift off and I've forgotten my bloody password the the blog. Great start. Makes me think of all the things I can forget on the trip.....passport, bank password, ATM pin number, flight details, where I last saw Ashley. I'll try not to think about it. That usually works.

So, state of play. I am packed (have been for 4 weeks) and Ashley has clothes on the bed ready. We have all our bank details sorted and have just returned from mowing the lawns at Currarong. The more I think about it, the more things I think of that could go wrong. I'll try not to think about it. That usually works.

Darryl hasn't moved in yet. He's cutting it fine. So much he needs to know that I just don't see me being able to tell to feed the dog, where to buy the food, why you have to jiggle the freezer and how to fix the gas bottle under the sink. Does he know that our sewer reguarly blocks up? Has he got his computer devices configured to access our WiFi? Lots of details need to be covered and he isn't here. I'll try not to think about it. That usually works.

I had some teaching obligations to fulfil but I have written my ESSA questions now and sorted the BOS stuff. Finished applying for marking HSC (to keep me out of trouble when I get back) and sent my expression of interest for writing support documents. Hope there's nothing else I have to fill out. wont be here for panelling so the final OK will have to happen without me. I'll try not to think about it. That usually works.

OMG. This holiday better be worth it.

Now why aren't I surprised that you were packed four weeks in advance? Let me guess, you have several sets of everything, probably in matching colours.

Are you going to be passing through the UK? If you are it would be great to catch up.

Have a fantastic trip! I'm not jealous ... no really, I' m not ... of course I'd rather be stuck in a classroom.

How can you forget anything when you have spent the last 12 weeks telling the iPad what you need to bring so that you don't forget??
Remember the iPad, and all else won't matter I'm sure.... if nothing else Cooper will love playing on it.
See you soon.

very Scarlett O'Hara of you ...she always said "i'll think about that tomorrow"
