The countdown begins!

This time next week i’ll be in China! Crazy!

Seriously need to start packing but i’m so super busy at the moment it’ll probably be a last minute job, i actually need to buy a suitcase… that’d be a good idea now wouldn’t it.
We found out yesterday that we have 30kg of luggage allowance which may sound like quite boring news to receive but we had thought it was 20kg and i was starting to worry at how i was going to be able to pack enough for a year on the other side of the world in one tiny 20kg suitcase! But all is fine, i can take as many pairs of shoes as i like now πŸ˜‰

For the past month i’ve been making the most of my summer time in the UK by seeing friends and family a lot, i went to London for about a week which was super fun. On Saturday my whole family and I are going to Splash Landings at Alton Towers – a big water park/swimming pool complex – for a last family get together and nice day out. Tomorrow i’m back to London again for just the day which i’m really excited about although i won’t say why on here πŸ˜‰

Yeah so my last post was pretty open and honest, i’ve never really written so truthfully or personally on here but it definitely helped at the time and i’ve had a lot of positive feedback from people going through similar emotions or just needing some advice – i’m glad it’s helped people as much as it helped me and that this blog has gotten new readers as a result. The post is now protected and you need a password to view it – just ask me for it if you want to read πŸ™‚

I’ve been the happiest i’ve been in a long time this past month Β – my friends and family have been wonderful and i am so looking forward to the coming year!!! A soppy blog post saying just how wonderful they all are will probably follow.. just to warn you!

The next post after that will then probably be when i’m settled so i’ll see you on the other side πŸ˜‰
