You leave tomorrow!!!

OMG that is so lovely of your parents! I'm sure you'll find some really nice jewellery over there if that's what you want, and you might even be able to do an activity that you had ruled out due to expense.

Have a great time, enjoy the pixie dust and I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back

Worked my last day today with kindy & we discussed things we wait for in religion and Halloween came up so I took off on a tangent about my trip and where/ who I will be for Halloween they loved it but we had to get back to work lol

Got my legs waxed today, for a first timer not too bad, thought it was funny though because during the appointment at the beauticians house I found out I had taught her son all day in kindy he was slightly confused when I walked past him to leave lol

1 movie left on my countdown for tomorrow night, Tangled have to get my travel card tomorrow no matter what the exchange rate it, fingers crossed it stays put or goes up, then off to blissful heaven for a massage

Then stopping at Bec's to weight my suitcase with her travel scales please be under!

2 sleeps
So close now! What a wonderful gift from your parents They are obviously very proud of you and all youve achieved .

So...one sleep to go still doesn't feel real!

Organised my travel card today finally (at 0.9844 so not too bad for under equal) and exchanged another $500 cash. Then I bought some new Christmas picture books so I don't miss out while I'm gone

Ohh then I had the most relaxing 90 minute massage It was just heaven! I could have fallen asleep while she was doing my back but I don't like sleeping on my stomach highly recommend the Natural Beauty Bar to anyone who lives in the Penrith area, just opened on the 8th of October they are on Facebook, opened by a girl I went to school with lol great way to really get relaxed though it still does not feel like its happening tomorrow

The one sour note of the day is that my bathroom (which I used to share with my brother, now its all mine ) has some sort of ant problem. There has been a few around lately but I left them alone and they died. Today they came out more and more each time I cleaned them up no clue where they are coming from but I've surface sprayed everywhere and now there is another batch of dead ants around the shower, go figure I do not lke ants, they make me itch!!!

Well on that note I'm off to watch Tangled and hope that I have packed everything (with 4 things to go in tomorrow morning). Fingers crossed for some sleep and I'll check in again tomorrow before we leave

1 sleep

omg. i cannot believe it's only 1 sleep to go. have the most amazing and magical trip ever!! i can't wait to hear all about it when you get back

i too have the ant problem in my bathroom from time to time. i thought they might have been coming up between the grout in the tiles near the drain, or up the drain itself... little suckers seem to come out of nowhere. i bought just cheapo coles branded surface spray and sprayed once during the day, and haven't had any return for the last 4 weeks or so... good luck with that too

omg, so excited for you and so happy to hear you had a great massage. that can make all the difference
