So with just 5 weeks to go, we are starting to do the rounds to say our goodbyes. We visited some family a few weeks ago in Cornwall which was great, such a beautiful part of the UK too - one we had not visited before.

Tomorrow we embark on the second of our family visits up in Nottingham and Lincoln and then the last visits are all local ones for the last few weeks.
I prefer not to see them as actual 'goodbyes' and more like 'see you later's, with tools like Skype and Facebook it becomes easier to keep in touch. We'll also be back to the UK in the future. It's still tough but I will do all I can to keep in touch.
Everything else is going well too, our first two bags are packed and the others are filling up. There is much less 'stuff' in the flat and I have been busy painting the skirtings and scuffs in a bid to spruce up the flat before we go. We also made a little puja for Ganesh, the elephant headed Hindu God who is the patron of travellers. It seemed fitting to give thanks and ask for our journey to be blessed.
Once we return from our trip away, we'll be moving into the front room enabling us to get rid of the last 2 armchairs, TV, and table that are in there, plus we are dropping off some stuff for storage whilst we are away so I can get to work on the downstairs hallway (might need a bit of help with the spiders though).
Anyway, must get a few things packed for tomorrow so see you later!
