I feel so positive, its the best I've felt in ages. Someone actually said to me the other day that I look younger, didn't realise I looked that old in the first place

Anyway just wanted to share, off to do a silly dance around the room, again!!
Can't wipe the smile off my face, not sure about looking younger, more like the village idiot at the moment, but I don't care because I'M GOING HOME!!!!
Dear TT
I hope you will have a safe and happy jopurney home and the time just flies by til you're on that plane!

Kath...house sold??? Whats this??? Havent been on here a while, so apologies for seeming not with it. Is East coast out of the equation now, or are you still going to try there first?
Again, sorry to sound thick!!

GOOD LUCK

Hi all,

Just to say that when we flew back to the UK 2 weeks ago with Singapore, we were only supposed to have 20kg each and 10kg for the baby. I know people say unofficially you are allowed 25kg each, but the bloke that checked us in told me we were allowed 27kg each and if it was a few kgs over it would be ok. Ours was actually 16 over but we got away with it. We had 2 big cases, 1 medium and 1 small + a Britax car seat (checked it in wrapped in plastic as baby was in bassinet on plane). We also managed to get 4 hand luggage bags (2 full of toys and photos in frames, one with baby stuff for flight and one with the all important laptop) as well as the 3 wheeler for the baby and a Mclaran buggy for Flynn as I suddenly realised at the last minute that even though he's nearly 4, Singapore airport for 2 hours walking in the middle of the night could be a problem, thank God I took it! I did phone and tell Singapore that were were moving to the UK and had one way tickets but they wouldn't up the baggage like they did on the way to Oz. Hope this helps.

Jo

Ah fishfinger, I was thinking about you the other day and wondering if you had sold yet. It'll happen and you'll soon be on that plane.
