THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS

Happy Monday blog friends,

I am finding I have an extra spring in my step this morning. I have already been and walked 10 laps around the local football oval, dropped a dozen parcels at the post office and visited my local doctor for some prescription refills.....even being told I have tonsilitis didn't put a dampner on the day (antibiotics will fix that easily enough).....

I have not wanted to count down to our trip, but today, being less than a week away now, I find myself doing just that. I am laying out bits and pieces on the bed, mixing and matching scarves, hats, shoes etc with very carefully selected clothes, and I am buzzing all the while.

Simone and I made a bit of a goal to pack extremely light so that we can cram purchases in our luggage to bring straight home, even taking an extra duffle bag each to fill also.....so I have been very careful to pick the clothes that will come, and have even (don't laugh) taken photos of all the different ways I can mix and match these 10 items to make 15 different outfits.

I also decided that it had been way too long between bag purchases and headed to Melbourne on Friday in search of a new bag, big enough to be carry on and pop all my flight essentials in....


Here are all my little bits and pieces....new bag, notebooks and pencils (love my notebooks), i-pad, coin purse (thanks Sal) and make up bag fresh out of the washing machine, oh and gorgeous chevron style luggage tags (thanks Mum)

It will be an exciting and busy week, a little anxious about leaving my 3 gorgeous boys behind, but my big boy (husband) is extremely capable and will have things running ship shape not doubt. I will spend the next few days doing all those little last minute things and will have a few sleepless nights (damm should have asked Doctor Steve for some sleeping pills)....in the end it will all be O.K.

So, now we hope you will all follow our adventure as we blog our way across the globe. We will be sharing our journey, our days at the fair, our purchases and our mishaps (hey there are bound to be more than a few) so do check in next Sunday 6th May for the beginning and keep checking daily for updates.

One more piece of news to share......stumbled across this ad in the Age on Saturday for The Vintage Shed which was great to see, and even better that the photo on the left was our Vintage Girl stall! Yay!!


Have a lovely week bloggers...
