Getting ready to leave...

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 13 October 2012 | Views [253]


Well it's only a week to go until I leave and the reality of leaving my family has hit home today. Ethan and I had a coffee and a milkshake and we were talking about me getting on the plane on Saturday. Suddenly he burst into tears, so of course I did too. We had a bit of a cry and a cuddle and he said it was the second saddest thing that could happen with me- the first saddest was if I died......poor boy he was so upset. I haven't been away from the kids for more than 2 nights in a row, and then only a handful of times. It will be a big event in our little family, but I'm determined to make the most of it.

My plan is to record what I do each day I'm away here so the kids and rest of the family can check in to what I'm up to and get to be a part of it too.

Next stop: the plane to Beijing
