"i think its all kicked in" was my sob to a friend on my mobile yesterday morning.  I was sitting in first class (my first time! cheap advance tickets = genius!) tears pouring and holding on to a huge backpack, not surprisingly i got a few odd looks.  I had hardly slept all night saturday, nerves or excitment or both..not sure.  I had not even let myself think about saying goodbye so suffice to say it was a bit of a shock to the system. I can't thank my family enough for being hugely supportive, I don't know where i'd be without them, but this makes it so hard to say goodbye! Thank you so much to everyone who has helped on the way to this trip, you all know who you are and I am so grateful, thank you.

Once in London (makeup redone and a newly pulled together self) me and steve met and compared our backpack sizes - his is smaller, just, humph! Before rambling through london, picking up people on the way and leaving pizza express staff wondering what they had let book a table when we showed up with our packs. It was so so so lovely to see everyone and eat lots of food! too soon we had to say our goodbyes in the National Theatre gallery where they serve huge cups of coffee and we headed to the underground making our way to my family's house.

We've been jumped on and cuddled non stop but its been totally wonderful to see my little cousins and of course my uncle and aunty who have been so kind and welcoming.  They have a wonderful open plan house surrounded by an old vineyard and we are very much looking forward to going out for our last meal in England with them tonight!

We've spent today in Reading, picked up some last minute necessities and have just checked in online.  This time tomorrow we'll be in the air!

Lots of love to everyone,
P xxxxx
