... but not for much longer! Welcome to our last post before we leave the country! Here are some things we know about packing up your house:
1. No matter how much you get packed beforehand, there will always be more to pack at the last minute.
2. Parents are fantastic. They clean and drive cars and all manner of useful things.
3. You will find some form of sweet orange marmalade that you had at your last house, which has been spiked with vodka. OK, so you might not, but I'm sure you'll find a pair of skimpy stretchy orange-check shorts.
4. You will need lots of boxes - but not all of them should be big, or else you won't be able to carry them.
5. Your house is much bigger than it used to be. Also much dirtier.

So, you won't hear from us again before we leave Australia. We are both looking forward to the 24 hour flight - we have Duel Monsters (the YuGiOh card game) and Snatch (courtesy of S-J and Esther) and Uno to play... also a number of books... and Rachel is highly excited by the prospect of airline food! Squee!!! Lots of little packets of stuff!

Thanks to everyone for your well-wishes and cards and gifts and drinks and company and good times and great classic hits. Keep in contact with us by checking this site, leaving comments (they are NOT private comments), or emailing us at our gmail address.

Looking forward to seeing all the UKish people in about 5 days (their time) or 4 days (our time)!

    Boo. Whores. Daring to go away without certain people who want to come along.

    Anywho, I hope the cleaning went well — well, as well as cleaning can go — and that everything is sorted.
