We take a fairly lengthy break in our rooms during the afternoon, that's how we do it. Mind you, I can't do much right on - being on two crutches!

Regarding the Express Pass for the Harry Potter rides, is that they could be used when I was there in October for everything but Hogwart's Express. Can you use it for Hogwart's now. Lines were not bad on the IOA side but much more so on the Studios side.

Wonderful plans, and great job getting everything all rearranged! You simply MUST do Illuminations! It's my favorite thing in all of WDW.

I can't quite believe it 13 sleeps until I fly and I'm packed. Almost close the suitcase packed.

Packing is a bit complicated. As I said I'm flying from Brisbane and Graeme and Rory are flying from the UK. However, Graeme's shorts and tee shirts are in Brisbane and although he is flying back to the UK he is taking back our golf clubs before the big move so he can't take much clothes. So I have also packed his shorts, tee shirts, underwear and swimmers with my luggage.

Added to that I got frustrated with Graeme and Rory last time he was home in Scotland basically Rory has home clothes and boarding school clothes. His home clothes are his newer or more expensive stuff as we know where it is and his boarding school stuff is older and cheaper for hopefully obvious reasons. He got 3 new tee shirts at Christmas time that we brought back from Hawaii. Well what do you know only 1 is in the house despite me keeping them back from the boarding school in January. Seems like 5 minutes in the house and all my organisation goes out the window, So I made Graeme take Rory's shorts and tee shirts here so I have to pack this as well.

Luckily as I'm flying Qantas business class and have status I can take 3 x 32 kg cases in the hold plus 1 carry on. I'm trying to fit it in 2 hold cases and 1 carry on thought as I know I can manage that on my own on their wheels. A third hold case might not be manageable without a trolly and I won't have change only large notes landing from Australia so a trolly seems complicated.

So Graeme is flying to Scotland Thursday night. He has to stay in the house to get my coffee machine repaired the following Monday so I'm getting PJs and underwear for Rory, a couple of shorts and tee shirts for him and PJs for me delivered that can go straight into Graeme's case as well as some toiletries for him to take and a bit of US cash. We tend not to use much cash but a little is essential for tips and tolls.

I have spent the day going through WDW menus and nutritional information. I have been doing weight watchers for the past 9 months and have lost about 11 KG and till have another 10 to go. While I don't really want to lose weight at WDW I would like to stay the same.

The great thing about WW is that eggs, fish, chicken veg and fruit are free and a filet Mignon isn't too points high so I'm planning on omelettes for breakfast, no starters or desserts at dinner. That way I can stay on points but work in a few dole whips, a couple of waffle cones, some maple nut fudge and a Beaches and cream sundae. Not bad going. So on points and a lot of walking and hopefully I won't put on weight. I find the trick is to know each day in advance what I'm allowed to eat.

Good luck with the packing, you have a lot to remember. Congratulations on the weight loss, I am sure with all the walking you can have a few treats.

Wow, that is taking organisation and packing to a new level!

So I take it when you say you're getting stuff delivered, that will be Marks and Sparksies?

And do I gather from this update that you are on your way back from Australia then? I remember you were due to be out there until summer 2017 (I still say those three years flew by! ) and then you were staying for another year, so now you're on your way home? I so hope so... maybe then we can see each other again.

Markie Sparkies and Next, you know me too well.

I'm expecting to be moving to Paris either May or June. However, it will be different from before Graeme is going home and Rory staying at school in Edinburgh so I'm thinking of flying in monday mornings, working until Thursday night and going home then working from home Fridays.

Don’t you get so frustrated when boys (husbands included) can’t keep up a simple organizational plan?! Complicated to pack for someone who is so far away.
Congrats on the weight loss! Good idea having some of the meals planned out ahead of time so you know where you can work in some treats.

Hmmm I wouldn't say husbands included I'd say husbands at the top of the list cos frankly mine is worse than the kids.

How can you lose two tee shirts which were in the house when we left in January and he has only been back for 1 week since. The correct answer is yo don't he will have put them somewhere stupid like my bedroom or something.

Wow, Mark just said you'll be getting some serious air miles! Would that be out of Charles de Gaulle? If so, I don't envy you... and of course come March 2019, goodness knows how it will work with Brexit.

You'll have to let us know how it all works out - we'd love to see you again and I'm sure at some point we can find a cheap flight up to Edinburgh to see you guys again.
