I thnk top of you list of things to pack should be


I know this is your first flight and all but really the more anxious you make yourself the less you will be able to cope. Don't worry about getting every last blessed thing down on your list of things to pack, if you ain't got it you ain't got it and that's that. You will be amazed to discover that in Australia you can buy pretty much anything (and more) that you can in the UK so it will be OK

Chill out and just think of the sun and sea, stop making yourself dizzy with the flight, it's only a small part of your holiday HTH

WOW you are flying to Oz for your first flight!!! I am going to Florida (not for ages) and have told DH that I need a practise flight. I plan on Bristol to Exeter.......maybe an hour at a push .


moondog · 14/08/2005 19:58

Is the wedding vow renewal the only reason you're going??

Wishing you the very best with everything
You'll be fine and best of all your kids are old enough to behave.

Wow, you will have a great time, dont worry about the flight, it will all go smoothly, I went in Nov with a 9 months old and 2 1/2 year old so I'm sure your kids will be fine. Enjoy

not that brave, went to a big family wedding and the 2 1/2 year old was a bridesmaid, flight was ok but jet lag was a bit rough, how do you tell a 2 1/2 year old and 7 month old that they really do need to sleep, but would imagine with the ages of your kids that will be a bit easier, I would be lying if I said that I wasnt jealous, we had such a great time and I'm glad that we didnt let the long flight put us off.


AlmostAnAngel · 14/08/2005 23:16

every single person we have told says are you mad!!? lol let you know when we get back !
