Finally, we're all packed and ready to go. Just waiting for our lift to the airport hotel. We're staying in a hotel near Manchester Airport tonight. We're going to check-in early and make use of the leisure facilities to have a fun and relaxing afternoon. We'll then go out for a meal tonight before flying tomorrow morning.

Why is packing so stressful? I'm not too bad but Rachelle always stresses before we leave, worried that we're taking too much, not taking enough, worried that we'll forget something.

Lauren bless her hasn't really got a clue what's to come. It's a 13 hour flight to Singapore, where we're having a 2 day stopover, but I'm sure she'll be fine. Singapore Airlines is really good with kids apparently and there's movies on demand, games, etc. In fact, I'm quite looking forward to the flight after the stress of the last few weeks.
