36 hours to truck loading day

Just posting one last time before I lose my internet connection at midnight. We are going pretty good with the packing, in 48 hours we will be bunked up in a caravan park, hopefully getting a good nights sleep before the big drive on Saturday. I think it'll take about 8 hours.
After we get the truck unpacked we then have to drive it back up here on Monday, and I will get the train back down on Tuesday and get on with sorting the new house out. The kids will be staying with Grandma and Granda on Saturday night. I will miss them. But I have to say I am looking forward to sitting on that train for 6 hours ALL BY MYSELF. I already have packed the books, mags to read and I'll probably have some knitting with me as well (a scarf, surprise, surprise).

Telstra have assured me that I will have my internet connection back on Monday. But I'll be heading back here Monday, won't get back to the house 'til Tuesday afternoon so don't know when I'll be back on. And really - it's Telstra. If I had my connection all sorted on Monday I would just about die from the shock.

Can't post without a picture so I have this one for you. I found this little knitted dress at the op shop and just couldn't resist it. I think it's probably made for a little girl about 18 months old, but it fits Ruby perfectly as a top and looks cute, I think.

Hopefully I'll be back to the block in about a week, minus any moving horror stories.

I hope by now you are getting settled and the worst is over. I need your new address too. I have a little something to send your way.
