    That's fantastic news, I bet time really does start to fly for you now, you'll have to let me know when the nerves start kicking in. How long is your stop over in LA for? I'm going to be wanting every detail of your flight over with the kids, mine are 3 and 1 and I'm dreading it. I'm having a celebratory chocolate biccy for you now.

    Hey Gina- i to am dreading it with the girls- they are at the age now where they keep winding each other up all the time now- just what you need for 29hrs.

    We chose the direct flight via LA so it's just a couple of hours stop while they re-fuel and whatever else they do- no changing planes.

    Think we then have a couple of hours in Aukland for the flight to Welli.

    Wow - it seems to be rolling along so quickly now - at least when viewed from the outside. We'll be going over about the same time on our final recon mission. Not sure if it will be feasible to connect long enough to wave "hello", though.

    You've got something solid to hang onto now and to remind you that you are going. Get the winter behind you and time will pass quickly.

    Wahey Beth, that's great news!

    Enjoy the last few weeks in blighty, and really hope the flight goes smoothly for you. Must admit, I'm dreading that part having 2 young children ourselves.

    am very envious, although hopefully we won't be too far behind you!
