Up, up and away....

We're almost organised...I'm always a bit stressed before we leave for overseas: what did I forget, have I got the right flight times, what if we breakdown on the way....I know, silly things, but my control-freak nature is at its worst at times like this! My head is buzzing with all the things I have to remember, but at least we leave at a sane hour (lunchtime) tomorrow, so there's plenty of time.

We've got an hour to Sydney, then 8 hours to Singapore, then 12 hours to Frankfurt. Then about 2 hours drive to The Village. You can check out the main town nearby, Brilon. They have a webcam on the town square looking at the Rathaus (Townhall), so I'll wave each time I go past! (I just looked, and its raining and 13oC....better pack another jumper I think).

I'll be posting as regularly as I can, so watch this space....Jawhol!

tschus!

I'm quite sure that worrying about all those details isn't 'control-freak' stuff - sounds perfectly normal to me. Hmmm, but maybe *I'M* a control freak, in which case... welcome to the club!

Hope the travel goes as smoothly as possible with a toddler (don't envy you there - did Oz to USA with my 2 under 4s many years ago - won't regale you with the gory details).

Looking forward to German blog updates! :)
