Now, the countdown has well and truly begun.
All efforts, going forward, are concentrated on moving out the flat where I've lived for 9 years... 9 years... do you know how much stuff a girl can accumulate in 9 years? well, let me tell you - a lot. I've got stuff in cupboards that I haven't seen since I moved in.
So today I'm enjoying, what will probably be, the last Saturday in our flat
Moving out is a scary thought. I've lived in this area all my life, so packing up and moving on is quite sad. Ever since I handed my notice in and we sorted the flat stuff out I've been paying attention to everything that you'd normally ignore - the trees outside our flat, looking up at buildings instead of just walking past, just soaking up everything around me that will be gone very soon. Although it's sad and I will miss everything loads, I just know that there is tons of other exciting stuff out there waiting for me.
Tickets will hopefully be purchased sometime in the next couple of days, once we've sorted out US car hire, which is no mean feat. why is it SO complicated? No hidden charges? Hmmmm, yeah, right... not unless you read the teeny tiny small print - size 4 font, white text ;)
Anyway, right now I'm off for Pizza with a friend. She's getting married the weekend that we leave the country, which I'm really gutted about because she is the friend I've known the longest in the whole world. But, we're going to have a little celebration this afternoon to say goodbye and good luck. Although after the amount I drank last night, the forthcoming wedding will be toasted with Lemonade rather than anything alcoholic!
