'Where's the airport?'
England
'Where's the car?'
Saturday 8th September 2001 West Molesey, Surrey

Sold the car today - Very sad :-( ...

But Deon, Shelly, Ollo, Kieran and Griffo came visiting which was great. Had a good chat with Deon and Shelly who must have been exhausted as they flew in from Greece at about 5 in the morning.

Sunday 9th September 2001 West Molesey, Surrey

Another day of rushing about. I am getting pretty stressed and don't seem to find time to stop and think about what needs to be done. Thinks are a little trickier today as we sold the MGF yesterday so are car less and we need to pop out and get bits.

Fortunately Mum, Dad, Ollo, Gus and Chloe turned up at lunch time so we immediately hijacked two cars and rushed to Kingston and Walton to get some essential bits.

People were turning up all day, Griffo popped round again (twice in two days Griff and not a hob nob in the house). Spit, Joy and Sylvia came round at 6 so we went for a Chinese which made me relax and I felt a lot better.

Mum, Joy and Spit arrived on the Sunday at about 6.30pm in a cloud of bedding and bags ready to see us off on the morning.

We all went out for a lovely Chinese dinner and were quite nervous about the morning and how we would all feel.

Monday 10th September 2001 Heathrow Airport, Middlesex

Got up at 5 to get ready to leave for the airport at 6:30 but found myself dreaming away the morning in the bath which made everyone late - SORRY

I then got us lost driving to Heathrow which made us even more late - SORRY AGAIN.

We had a very emotional farewell.

THANKYOU everyone that have helped us over the last few days. We couldn't of done it without you!

The alarm was set for 5.00 in the morning supposedly giving us enough time to get our stuff together and be on our way.

But not surprisingly we were late so it was all hands on deck with Toby getting very stressed and not knowing his arse from his elbow.......

We did get to the Airport and everyone was waiting for us, my dad, Jacky and Rebecca, Toby's mum and dad along with Joy and Spit. After a brief coffee we made our way to the departure gate and said our goodbyes.

It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be but tears were shed by everyone apart from me and Tobes as I think we were both still in shock that it was actually happening at last. We had a very good flight in the Business class area which was a bonus... so we had lots of leg room and comfy chairs...
