Oscar's passport arrived this morning, the tickets are booked - it's official. I'm very nervous but I think we'll be fine (Thanks Beege for the tips below!) We fly out on the 7th and come back on the 21st. I know I'm going to miss Rob so much and he'll miss us both but I think it'll be brilliant.
I've already got plans to go out to a proper bar with my friend Tiff who is going to pretend to be British too and be called Camilla! I want to go to the kind of bar I've seen on TV where they have popcorn in little bowls and the bartender talks to you. I want to be awfully awfully british and see how many people tell me my accent is cute. I need to get drunk. And have a laugh. So Kirsti - you'll be babysitting if that's ok! (And morning sitting if I'm hungover.)
I've also got a gathering to go to on the weekend of the 15th in Peoria - a harvest hog roast with 100 people - 20 of whom I know and love and can't wait to see.
Oh I'm so excited and scared and happy all at the same time! I want to start packing now!
I also want to buy Oscar the tackiest halloween outfit I can find. Maybe even get a matching set for me and him....hee hee!!!
