Come fly with me.....
Today has been a quiet day. Just the usual stuff: grocery shopping, cleaning, looking after Lucy...
Tomorrow is the start of the last week before Lucy and I will fly to Germany. I brought her over already three times. But this time will be very different. for all of us. Now, Lucy is walking, is starting to talk and is in general not the same child as on Christmas anymore. My family will have to get to know her all over again. My mum hasn't seen Lucy since her first birthday in February and that was pretty hectic, as we were so busy with the party preparations. She also came as a surprise and was therefore only here for two days.
Now that Lucy is walking it will be much harder for me to bring her over all by myself. Last year I just strapped her into a baby sling and off we went. This time I will have Lucy in a buggy and a suitcase and I have to go from the airport in ha burg onto a train to my Mum's. I also have to change the train once. We will be on the go all day, from around 7:00 am till 7:00 pm German time, which is 6:00 pm our time. Eleven hours. I am exhausted just thinking about it.
So this week is all prepeaations in the house. That means: cleaning, cleaning, cleaning.... I really want to leave the house spick and span for my husband. he works so hard and deserves to come home to a clean and tidy house every night.
Next week will be then all week packing. Well, its only four days really, so that doesn't leave me with much time. I have to wash all our clothes and actualy do a trial run with the packing of the suitcase, just to make sure its not over weight.
I don't want to bore you any more. Just thought I let you know what it's like here. I doubt I will be getting much crafty stuff done from now until the 14th but if I am lucky maybe the elephant.
Hope you are all having a lovely week so far.
