Ready and Raring to GO!

Going on Holiday!
Mr Jummy is packed and raring to go!

In a little less than 12 hours, a mean taxi driver is going to be ringing our doorbell at a quarter to 6 to pick us up and take us to the train station. Why is the taxi driver mean, you ask? Well, I think that -anyone- ringing your doorbell before 6 in the morning is mean!!! After he drops us and our two suitcases at the train station, we'll drag ourselves up the stairs to the train and begin the 2-ish hour journey to the airport.

THEN THE FUN REALLY BEGINS!

10 hours, 40 minutes in an airplane seat designed for people who've had their legs amputated.
7 hours, 30 minutes in an airport which conveniently sits in the middle of NOWHERE so we can't really get anywhere fun and have time to sight see.
3 hours, 17 minutes in another rotten airplane seat.

But then! I will see my mom and dad at the airport and the hugely lengthy travel time will all be worth it.

We all miss you and look forward to seeing you soon... oh and by the way I have no problem with airpalne seat and there lack of leg room... Maybe its cause I'm 5 feet nothing =) I guess there are advantages to being short =)
