    I feel like I should have packed more by now but we're still wearing things.

    Sunday 8th August

    Steven has come through all his karate lessons unscathed. :mental:

    I started packing. Then I unpacked again.

    Now my packing room has Steven's butterfly poster spread out on the floor so I can't get to anything. :mental:

    I find the last few days before we go very frustrating - you want to pack but you cant because things are still being worn and used!

    Just been through the big rides with Steven. He is 48 1/4 inches in barefeet. Rock n Roller Coaster has a height restriction of 48 inches. He wants to ride it. I said we'd try but if the measuring stick says no then he can't. He accepted that without fuss. :unsure:

    OK cancel previous comment. Must have misheard at the hospital - Steven is 4ft 6ins tall and is raring to go with a bit of Aerosmith. :mental:

    Monday 9th August

    It's going to go wrong. It will be too hot, too crowded, we won't be able to do anything and Steven will be in perpetual meltdown. :mental:

    And I'm going to miss the morning sofa snuggles with Willow. :unsure:

    Or alternatively....there will be a freak snowstorm and you'll have to buy lots of winter clothes, all the rides will close because of the frost, and Steven will be bored with the whole thing ;)

    I always get upset about this time before my hols about leaving the furries :(

    It will be great!!!! Thats if you EVER get packed!!!!!!!!! :mental:

    OK the dining room AKA Packing Central now has no floor. The floor is covered in small piles of things to pack. I keep wanting to pack but Thursday has been designated the grand packing day so I must resist and do small jobs like smell the dollars.

    It is pouring with rain here and has been doing so for several hours. Adrian left the sunroof open on his car last night. Guess who's driving to work sat on a towel. :point:
