We're moving soon, so I'm up to my neck in boxes and crap; and I'm busy talking to removalists called Brett and Scotty and Jack, who hopefully won't poo in my toilet and clog it like one of the last removalists did.
(Yes, this actually happened).
And I'm also stressing Big Time, because the kids and I are going overseas in Two. More. Sleeps.
Yes, we're off to Fiji on one of those daily internet deal thingies I booked earlier this year. It was the result of an internet-fuelled fit of madness after one of my BFF's did the same thing and posted it on her Facebook Status Update.
"So it's not takey?" I think I commented. She replied that she'd done a few of those deals, and they'd all been fine. Not only that, she'd stayed at this resort - the Warwick Fiji Resort and Spa - before and it was lovely. And very kid-friendly. I was sold.
A few mouse clicks later, and we were on. (Has it ever been easier to book a holiday? Dangerous days indeed. Thank goodness for credit cards!)
The kids have been counting the days, and bombarding me with questions:
Will there be horse-riding? Yes, but you are very allergic
Can they go swimming? All the time
Is it five-star? Who cares? It's Fiji?
What will they get to eat on the plane? Really?
Can they each have a camera? Nice try
Is there a kid's club? That was one of the first things I looked for! Seriously apparently Fijians love kids and the kids clubs are The Bomb.)
So next week, instead of moving, thinking about moving, or stressing about moving; I intend to bare my white skin on a sun lounge (sunscreen applied and under shade of course!), read a few good books, get a massage, eat and drink far too much, wear sarongs, and build happy memories with my wonderful kids.

We've added on a few nights at the Shangri-La's Fijian Resort and Spa, Yanuca Island. Hopefully the view from our balcony will look a little like this!
Cannot wait to get Beached As ...
And lose ourselves ... (the Shangri-La)
We're flying with Air Pacific Fiji, so unfortunately there is no chance of us being marooned in Fiji as there might be with other airlines. Ahem.
We'll be back!
