Good list Karen - don't forget Aussie Post if no-one is at home! I get my neighbours to dispose of the junk mail, but being away for 4 weeks I'll get Aussie Post to hold the mail!! Makes for good reading when you get home...!!!!

I'm not sure how i'd go with a kindle (i'd be afraid i'd drop it in the bath )

I'll be grabbing a good book before we go (only 1) and we'll see how we go with that.

omg, my parents used to do this when they left on holiday too

i was the only one of the 3 of us who followed it though i took great pride in ticking things off the list

funnily enough, when i went on my holiday, i gave a house manual to my mum and she was like 'what do i need this for? I know what I'm doing!!'

yes. turnabout. fair play. i'm sure there was a lesson in there somewhere hehehe
