Five Days to Go!

I think it is beginning to hit me. Everything feels incomplete, nothing feels settled. I don't know why I am surprised, I should have been expecting this!

I think we're finally prepared to go. All bills have been cancelled, all relevant parties have been notified, and plans are in place to visit our nearest and dearest one last time. I can't help wishing we had one more week, just to make sure. But that is maybe just delaying the inevitable.

I've not felt like this for a long time. Perhaps the only thing that comes close is how I felt before an all day interview - knowing that it would be over before I knew it, but needing to make sure to come up for air - to take stock of what is going on.

It's our last Friday night, and we're spending it with our old friend Julie =) (she's actually younger than me but I've known her forever!). The rest of the weekend is reserved for more visiting, with our remaining days next week being spent with family. It will no doubt be teary, and I know I've got lots of things I want to convey, but I think we are just now really looking forward to Wednesday afternoon - knowing that the initial hard part is done, and our wee adventure awaits =)

The Day After the Party

Wow that was one fun party! I think we eventually got to bed around 2.30am. If you know us, you'll will be as shocked as we are hah! But time really flew past at the party. We were so blown away by the turn out - I was particularly pleased that my old uni friends came along (although they aren't old of course!)

To finish off the evening, we had a couple of my friends from work stay over. There were a number of innuendos about the inflatable animals being left in the living room but Stuart managed to behave himself =)

Anyway, we've recorded a little clip about the party so please have a look =) (If you are reading this on FB, you'll need to click the "View Original Post" link to see the video.
