Flights booked, accommodation arranged and all clothes ready for packing (two weeks in advance). Christmas presents have been bought and wrapped (four months in advance…)
Goodbyes have been said.
My beautiful nephew gave me a heartfelt smack in the face during our farewell. I guess he’s not too pleased with the whole thing.
The last item on the to-do list was to help my hamster, Captain, achieve his lifetime dream (in case he kicks the little hamster bucket whilst I’m in Canada, although he’s more likely to eat the bucket than anything else). And so Captain sailed his very own pirate ship on the mighty blue blanket sea… that was until he started eating the helm.
