So, I've finished work for good now, sorted out all relevant documentation and visas etc, had all the relevant jabs (over 4 seperate visits and £350 later!) and I'm ready to go. Just currently trying to unlock my old Sony Ericsson mobile so i don't have to keep switching sim cards but other than that, I'm sorted!
I love flying, but dreading this 28 HOUR beast of a journey to Auckland... but at least that's the longest one done out the way first. I've pre-warned Sarah that if i don't sleep I'll be ratty as hell and not very nice, to which she completely understood (she's seen me in these moods before) and will do her best to ignore me during these periods! Bless her.
Leaving do at the weekend was such a fun night and I greatly appreciate all family and friends who could make it. It really got me excited about the whole trip (as i had been working and stressing up until that evening) and made me realise just what decent people i have in my life. Not only realising how much they mean to me, but how much I mean to them too.
OK, so i should probably try out this case now, and make sure it's not going to cripple me before I even arrive!
Love you all xxx
