Leaving on a jet plane

Well, see you later, folks! I'm off to China for 10 days! (Actually, I leave at 5 to 10 tonight but I've got so much to do today that I'm pretty sure I won't have time to blog.)

Last night was interesting... I started feeling off in the afternoon just before I had to go and pick up Dante from school. Driving home was a struggle, trying not to feel sick. Got home - Atticus was happy to see me, but must have sensed that I wasn't well as he wasn't too clingy, and actually quite happy. Dante was incredibly well behaved and helpful, too. Maybe because I was too sick to get mad at him. Anyway, after depositing my lunch in the toilet (yuk!) I felt a little better and went to bed almost as soon as Dan came home.

Ack! I'm about to go overseas to a place where we're not sure of the hygiene, especially in the rural areas. And I get sick! Hopefully it's just a 24 hour thing - Dan said I've probably picked up what Atticus had on the weekend, combined with the stress of getting ready to leave. I hope he's right. This is the last thing I need right now! (Plus, it's almost 3am and I'm wide awake because I went to bed so early... but at least I don't feel too ill at the moment).

Anyway, I'm sure that was way too much information for you. I'll stop whinging now, and hope you all have a nice, safe Easter (and don't eat too much chocolate - apparently Australia is the highest consumer of chocolate over Easter, per capita... something like 20 eggs per person. Gee whiz!). I don't know if I'll be able to post blog entries from overseas - not sure if I'll even be able to access since the Chinese censor everything (don't they?). So we'll see how things go! Bye!

Have a great time Jen. I wouldn't worry about getting sick. You'll get sick so there's no need to worry. Maybe arriving sick will keep you from getting the local bugs! Take lots of photos :)
