Last post from England!!!

I have spent the whole day running round getting last minute bits sorted out!! And here was me thinking I was ready lol. But now I really AM ready :-) Mr Messy is on his way home after picking up Baby Sis. Little Prince is fast asleep in bed. And me and Drama Teen are going to watch a dvd of her favourite comedien while having our tea :-)

We leave for the airport at 4am tomorrow EEK!! So I won't be updating until I get to Addis Ababa, if I'm able to!! There have been internet/phone problems in the area of Addis we are going to, so I'm not sure if I will be able to update or not. But I'll try my best :-) If not I'll post LOADS when I get back :-)
