Preparing for Launch
This morning I took this picture. With a fresh coat of snow, England is looking beautiful and a bit like Narnia - minus the lion. Or perhaps I'm already looking through rose tinted glasses. After a perfect weekend involving a fantastic friend and my super-duper family, it's easy to see its appeal.
And now that I've finished working the nine to five, my Monday morning certainly felt a lot brighter.
But go I must. In a week and a half I'll be making my way to the Southern Hemisphere and I've a lot to organise. To a normal person, this is no biggy. However, to a procrastinating dreamer like myself, filling out forms, sorting out appointments and carefully packing up my life is a little tricky.
No matter how much time I have to prepare, I cannot help but leave 95% of the details of travel until the final hour. Oh what joys this preparation week will bring.
At all times, I must tell myself the following
"...I must not waste my week watching CSI. I must not waste my week watching CSI. I must not waste my week watching CSI..."
Honestly, most days I wonder how I'll make it out of the house.
