9 weeks to go guys for my trip to Oz and i havent sorted out my accomodation.

Can anyone come up with a lil check list, i have a backpack, money is sorted-well that cant be too hard to sort! lol, have the sun cream hehe! clothing-now i dont have any shorts, just skirts and 3/4's.

But i am veering off here, footwear i have a pair of day/night wedges, not sure whether to go for trainers or walking type boots and i will have a pair of flip flops.

I cant believe how close this is-i'm sooooo very excited!

I should really start to make a list, i just can't think at the mo!

Jas, where have you been??? We missed you!;)

9 weeks!! god, the time has flown hasnt it?

I'd say if you're not planning on any serious trekking Jas, dont bother with the hiking boots. I dont even want to bring mine because they are heavy but I'll need them.

A really comfy pair of good flip-flops, like Tevas, would do probably. Wedges sounds like a good idea *mental note to self*

So, are the nerves starting to kick in yet?

oh very funny james.

I found a great pair of wedges Eve-just right-go with almost everything and they're not chunky one's. Well i lil person needs height-i'd be lost without them!!

Sometimes i get nervous when i think about stepping off the plane and being in Sydney but right now i can't wait to have some freedom!

And it's 6 weeks to go now!

Where have i been-well here, there and everywhere-had a lot on, been very bust working in diff towns for work (diff company) It's all been going on. Just been getting things sorted. Ive been sooo tired i have been like a zombie. Get home and go straight to bed. But i'm gonna try and take it easy now and have some me time!

Nice to know you missed me! I'll always pop back-no worries on that one. it's weird reading all about what's been going on. I havent been on the computer for months! But i have the house to myself so i'm making the most of it!!!

YOU'RE ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, you have been the topic of conversation for awhile now. We were wondering if you too, had been a victim of a TP kidnapping!!! People keep disappearing and not heard from again for long periods of time. Are you guys all just hanging out on the TP Island and not telling the rest of us?????

Isa hands Jasmine a kiwi fruit martini to help relax for a bit!! And yes, Isa knows the difference between Kiwis (NZ) and Aussies (OZ) - but she's never heard of an aussie fruit
