You wouldn't believe how much organising this Oz trip has taken (a bit different to a weekend in Skegness!). I dread to think what it will be like when/if we actually emigrate.

I think I've made a bit of a screw-up. I've booked day flights which I thought would be best but now it's dawned on me that the flight to Singapore gets in at 7am and we can't check in to the hotel until 2pm (after a 17 hour flight!). I've sent an e-mail to the hotel to see if there's any chance we can get an early check-in. I really don't want to have to pay for another night just for those few hours in the morning. We might be ok, we may be able to sleep on the flight. I think it would be a first for me if I did, without alcohol involved anyway. I don't think getting rat-arsed is a good idea on a 17 hour flight, I'm far too sensible these days! I suppose we could always sleep by the pool when we get there. I'm more worried about the return leg when we get into Singapore even earlier at 5:45. I haven't booked a hotel for the return leg yet as I thought I'd see what it's like on our stopover on the way out first.

Listen to me, it's usually the missus who does all the worrying, I'm the laid back one supposedly!
