Pots in the kettle and socks in mugs!

Sixteen days to go! Seven bags and two boxes all packed and weighed! And it's some pretty amazing packing if I can say so myself!! All our clothes (except those we have left out for the next few weeks) carefully laid, rolled and vacuum packed to easily fit in one bag with room to spare! And things packed inside other things so that every empty space and little nook and cranny is filled! There are pots in the kettle and socks in the mugs and cappucino mixes used like bubble wrap! I have to admit I really do love the art of packing! But I also must admit I have completely had enough now! I am getting a little stressed with the weight of books and the never-ending pile of "stuff" still waiting to get in a bag!

We had a lovely day yesterday at the wedding of my cousin, Ben to Sarah! It was a beautiful wedding and it was so good to see my aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents before we leave! The girls thoroughly enjoyed the fun day and being with all the cousins, big and small!

Amisadai and Louisa with Ben!

This week we will have our last jabs! Typhoid and Hep. A/B on Monday and then we are done! The girls have had no strange reactions from their malaria tablets which is good news and means we can continue with these tablets! Tim and I will get our tablets on Monday. We are going to be moving in with Tim's parents this week and also having two days in London, for the girls to see the sights of the capital before we go! Meanwhile we keep praying for tenants for our house and a buyer for our car! And we keep packing .... and packing... and packing ...
