I was just coming in to let everyone know about these dates - and knew you'd be happy Sare! The party will be on at the same time as the AFL Grand Final though, but I don't think we Collingwood supporters will have to worry about that this year unfortunately! We will be going to the party on October 1st (DH is a Hawks supporter so will probably want to watch the GF!) and will be staying at GCH by then so it will be very convenient.

Our ESTAs have now gone through

I've just changed our seat assignments for the flight home. Moved us to the other side of the plane so we could book the Skycouch and then the two seats in the centre aisle. The reason? The other end seat in the centre seats has already been booked so I'm hoping nobody will want that one, lonely seat squished between two strangers. Probably wishful thinking, but I'm willing to give it a go!
Then your ds3 is nothing like my dd2, who is completely egocentric (when do they grow out of the the ME, ME, ME stage?) and whiney. But conversely can be quite loving and kind. We never know what child we will get on any given day

Good luck with the seats. We've Pre-booked ours too, but we're flying qantas so no skycouch. I have dd1 and ds sitting with me and dh and dd2 are behind us (yep, intentionally separated from her siblings in the hope that she will create as little fuss as possible on the plane).

I forgot about the time difference. Bummed that I will miss the GF, but unless some miracle change of form happens over the next 10 or so weeks, I'm with you in thinking that the Pies won't be there. Plus I can't say that I want to see the Hawks win another flag...not a fan of them at all.

I believe at about age 24 they finally grow out of it...

I hope the separating plan works and the flight isn't too bad. That's one of my biggest worries too. Small, confined space - yet, lots of interesting things to explore We might have to tie DS2 down!

Never mind - it'll be another red and white year I miss the Semis and Prelims (I think), but home in time for the big one. Won't be going this year though - can't afford another GF trip!

it's exciting isn't it I am happy that the first party is not the 30th that's our arrival date back at DL and it will be much easier going to the party on the 1st we are thinking of doing 2 party's if only the NBA would release the rest of the preseason game dates I could decide

This is so funny- we had to schedule our entire trip so we were back for the grand final! We arrive back the day before!!! Poor DH will miss all the finals games though and looks like the Hawks are going to have a fair crack at it! I can just see us being dragged into every sports bar!

AustrianKaren, we recently paid the balance of our entire trip - such a great feeling seeing the words 'Paid in full' at the end of each item

9 weeks today - 2 months tomorrow For some reason two months sounds a LOT closer than 9 weeks

I've swung back to the freaking out side of the pendulum now, next week I'll probably be back to excited The dropping dollar is reducing all our spending money by around 10% so that's not cool We might have to drop one of the character meals because the cost gets a bit high x4 (thankfully DS3 is still free) especially when I'm not sure that any of them will even eat!

Grand final day is our lost day. As always hoping for Collingwood not to be there.
