What to take?

Well once one hurdle is passed, along comes the next, now we need to decide what to take with us and what to leave behind...

oh and find a removals firm that won't rip us off!

the car is a definate yes, it is worth NZD$33,000 but if we sell it around here we'd be lucky to get £8,000.

well I will have more time to decide in April... along with all the sewing of bridesmaids dresses.

Wedding plans are also coming to ahead.

Tickets are booked!

Well I never thought that booking some flights would be so scary, it took me 4 hours to finally pick the flight time.

I had to decide if we should go a few days after or a week after the wedding!

In the end I booked them for the 31st May! well I thought, pick the last day if you cant decide on one before!

I must of sat hovering over the submit button for 10 minutes! ha ha.

I booked them through Travelbag, they were the cheapest that I could find - Direct flight from London - Hong Kong - Auckland (I decided that we would rather save a few pennys than stop over a few days somewhere we are eager to start our new life, and we want to have a holiday in Auckland anyway)

Well I have a lot of sorting out to do now, I better get an action plan done for what I need to get done!
