The final countdown

‘nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah nah..’ well you get the gist – if you don’t then you’re clearly not a child of the 80’s 🙂

Two weeks left of work, feeling like the work ‘to do’ list is getting under control while the big trip ‘to do’ list seems to be ‘tick one off, add another two’. It’s all very exciting though and the kids and I can’t wait to get going.

Some of the lingering pages of my unsavory start to the year have been overwhelming me this week and I’m looking at the countdown clock like you’re counting down the seconds on the microwave as it heats up your screaming hungry child’s dinner (cos let’s face it, it’s only been an hour since they last ate something!).

I’m hoping to close that chapter of my life for at least the next four months while I’m away and just concentrate on myself, my kids and our little trip of a lifetime.

My apprehension and nervousness about free camping (BYO power and water) have subsided after my Easter long weekend girls weekend away (me and the fur baby on the rather green Murray).

While not quite ready to change my name to ‘Brooke Callinan 4 x 4 Adventures’ I reckon I’ve got this stuff pretty sorted and the rest I’ll learn along the way (with the help of the land of camping groups on Facebook and Google!).

The final countdown is on and I can’t wait for what lies ahead!IMG_0405
