The final countdown to Beijing
27.05.2006 14 °C
I cannot believe how quickly time flies! We are off to China on Thursday - 5 whole days away - l really need to start getting my ass in gear and sorting myself out!
So l have sorted out my clothes (ie pulled out likely candidates of stuff l could take and dumped them onto the spare bed!), our passports are currently in Dublin having themselves had a week long vacation in the Chinese Embassy to get our visas, Paul picks those up on Tuesday.
We will lift our travel spends on Thursday at the airport before we fly to London - just need to pre book that online.
Gotta sort our travel insurance - our annual insurance runs out about now so that needs renewed although it will see us through for the Austrailia trip and some inital searches are coming up with quotes for about £60 for the year for both of us!
Tomorrow, Purdy the cat goes on her holidays for almost 2 weeks to her grans - she doesnt know yet cos l dont think she will be amused about the car journey!!!
So today l really need to focus on packing and ironing and seeing if there are any last minute things l need to pick up! AND, lm trying to ignore a cold which is trying infiltrate my system!!
More to follow!
