I only have four weeks to go before I fly to Melbourne. I'm starting to feel quite nervous now. It's a really weird feeling because I really can't wait to start my adventure, yet I feel like I am running out of time in the UK. There are still a lot of things I would like to do and people I want to see.
I have done a few things lately that you might consider exciting. First of all, for Lewis' birthday on 14 March we went to Colchester Zoo. We have made a little bit of a tradition of going to the zoo on his birthday. Hopefully next year we can go to Melbourne Zoo!
Getting into the Australian spirit…
The most exciting thing I have done recently though is go flying in a propeller plane. Our friend Luke is a pilot and he took us flying over Essex and Kent last Sunday.
When I first got to the airport and saw the plane I was so scared because the plane was so small! It was literally like a Mini with wings! I'm really not a great flyer but once I was actually in the air it was nothing like what I was expecting.
The weather was beautiful and we could see for miles in all directions. We flew over Leeds Castle and the White Cliffs of Dover. We even flew over my house! It was probably the most amazing thing I've ever been able to do.
