Tomorrow evening we are due to leave here on the first leg of our 4 week trip down to Tasmania, via London, Copenhagen and Melbourne.
I admit to being a little OCD when it comes to preparing for anything. I packed our two carry-on size suitcases yesterday and they are sitting on the spare bed while I continue to double and triple check that nothing is missing before I lock them up. Although they meet the airline carry-on size requirements, we usually check them into the hold as we can't be bothered with the scrum for overhead locker space on boarding the aircraft.
The things I need to take with me on board are all laid out on top of my dressing table so that I don't forget to put them into my tote bag tomorrow.
Passports and boarding passes have been checked several times, to make sure they are still where they were the last time I looked.
Tomorrow will be spent quietly fretting in case our flight off the island is delayed or cancelled for any reason - weather, airline schedule issues, eco-rebellion protests, whatever.
I shall only be able to start relaxing once that first flight is in the air. The worry will then start all over again when we get to London, just in case the next 2-3 stages of the trip don't go to plan.
I managed to work out why Mail2Blogger wasn't working so be prepared for a few boring blog posts showing our progress - wifi availability permitting.
If any would-be burglars are out there reading this post, our friendly house-sitter will be here to thwart your plans. Just saying.
