We are off on our holidays tonight!  The whole family are flying to Hong Kong to visit my grandparents and extended family.  Lauren and Jocey haven't met my grandparents before, so we are all very excited.  My grandparents have told my parents that they can't wait and are coming to meet us when we land on Saturday afternoon.

It's also the longest plane journey that the girls have been on so we are a bit nervous.  Last time coming back from Chicago, Jocey refused to sleep for the entire flight, which was tough.  We were all shattered by the time we got off the plane, as that meant that none of us adults had any sleep either.

I have just about finished packing now but as always, I have that nagging doubt in the back of my mind about whether or not I've forgotten to pack something.  I suppose I'll find out soon enough!

So glad that the holiday has finally arrived.  Yippee!

Rapid catch up…

I have been chasing my own tail for so long over recent months that I’ve hardly had time to breathe. I’m certain that this adds to the sense of frustration that I have felt on a day to day basis. There seems to be an impossible mountain of tasks to complete and not enough hours in the day.

To add to this, I sprained my back whilst moving boxes over the weekend as some of them were very heavy after I had packed and sealed them. I am trying to keep moving and do some stretches, but it has been a set back in terms of packing today on my day off.

I’ve put the girls into nursery full time so that on my day off I can organise all the house move stuff. Whilst I was a bit reluctant to do this at first, it has certainly allowed me to get things done which are normally impossible. Even at the weekend, we have little opportunity to do chores as the girls are still little and require a lot of our attention. I miss them but console myself that it’s only going to be for a short time until we’ve sorted our move.

I’ve finally got up to date with our photos online – our photos from the last three months are all uploaded and can be seen by clicking the link to my Flickr albums.

Now, highlights from the last three months’ family activities!
