Yesterday was not good but I will do my best today. Frost & sun. Kate said there is torrential rain where she is in Australia. There has been terrible flooding in some places. The weather has become freakish, totally unpredictable.
TWJ has left for work. G is taking me to do some grocery shopping for Mum then he will take A & W to the airport. I haven't seen a lot of them but really have not been in mood for much socialising & they've had plenty of time with TWJ. Jay is trying to pack and clean. She has a lovely day for it, much easier when sun shining. I will be at Mum's most of day until I go to work at 4. Tomorrow hope to stay home until time for TWJ to go to work at mid-day. Monday we have to be up before the birds to be at Mum's 7 am so TWJ can take Os & Jay to airport. Jay needs this break so hope Mum doesn't give her a health panic in next couple of days. I can't go with TWJ as am the only one free to stay with Mum.
The next 2 weeks life will settle into a calmer routine until we get into a frenzy of final organisation for our trip. It is so near now. Time to book our hotel in San Francisco for our first 2 nights in USA 2009. We'll probably book Hertz car for those first few days. We haven't decided yet whether we are going to self drive to Vancouver as originally planned or whether we will look at Amtrack or other & simply hire a car by the day as required in the towns we stop off at. That is not our preferred option as we will miss out on all the places in between our stops.
I've run out of time .... Jaxx if you read this today ....You are on my mind and I do hope things are a little better. .... same for Chris H.
