Weekly Round Up – Week 4

Weekly Round Up – Week 4

Well what a busy week last week was!  Here’s my weekly round up from last week.

We completed on the house – a complete mix of happiness because we’re moving a step forward in our Australian adventure but sadness too as we were very happy in our little house.

The couple we sold to seem to be lovely though and I hope they will be as happy as we were there – I left them a bottle of Prosecco to enjoy while they settled in.

Family Life

We’ve moved in with my parents until we fly back to Australia – it’s going well so far I think!  Don’t ask them of course.

Our big news is that we booked the flights.  We leave in early October – ah everything is going so fast now.  I can’t decide if I’m looking forward to flying with a toddler and a baby.  Let’s be honest, I’m dreading it a little bit.  I think we will probably have to cave in and invest in an iPad.  Let me know if you have any tips on flying long haul with 2 small children.

•  My Most Read Post was – Emigrating from the UK to Australia!

•  My Favourite Post was – Why is my baby crying?  Solely because since turning 4 months old, Mini M appears to be clear of any random crying episodes now :)

•  My Favourite Archived Post – “Sleep when the Baby Sleeps” and other ridiculous pregnancy and parenting advice – as yet another random stranger felt the need to offer me their stupidity pearls of wisdom.

•  I’ve been Reviewing – Choc Nibbles – remember them from your childhood?  Win a hamper of them here!

On my To Do list for next week

•  Since I’m on a roll with organising things for Australia, I’d love to get our accommodation sorted.  You know, so we actually have somewhere to sleep the first night we arrive.

•  Get some more quotes on sending our excess baggage to Australia – it’s so expensive!  If you have any suggestions of companies who can ship or fly bags over, let me know please.

•  Walk walk walk – although I’ve been busy with the house move, my exercise has taken a back seat and I need to get back into walking.

I hope you all had a lovely week last week and enjoyed the rest of the school holidays, for those in the UK with school-age kids.

    WOWWIE!! Sorry Lovely, I missed that you are moving to Australia. That is amazing. For the flight I would definitely say iPad – they may have some kids films but when I flew to Tokyo in May the choice was very limited and the screen is really awkward for little people to see. That or pop some films on your laptop maybe?

    Gosh, how exciting!! Good luck with finding your accommodation love and everything else! Thanks for linking up to #TheList xx

      Ooh thanks lovely! I think you’re definitely right and we’ll end up investing in an iPad, we’re going to have so many other journeys and destinations to justify it too :) Mim x
