Final days before departure
What else can we say, these have been the most stressful days we have endured so far. We had internet problems and so were unable to advertise Kirsty's car for sale, panic time but alas, we need not have worried, we advertised it on gumtree at 7am on Tuesday nearly 2 weeks before departure date thinking that hopefully we would be able to sell it before we leave, it was sold within 3 hours!!!! leaving us with the enviable task of myself still working, Kirsty working 2 jobs (including opens at 6am and closes at 11pm at different jobs) and getting kids to school, I still don't know how we pulled it off but we did. John finished work on the Tuesday before we left, he spent every waking moment doing those final repairs and adjustments to both the car and van, finishing 1 job only to remember 2 more that needed doing. We have to give a huge thank you to Jim and Karen for putting us up for a week and to the Bray Family for 3 weeks we could not have done it without your awesome hospitality, thanks heaps guys.
