One More Sleep

Its 7:00 pm on the eve before we depart for our two week holiday to Ontario to meet our beautiful niece Clara, spend some long over-due time with family and friends and enjoy a properly crisp, Canadian Autumn that by now, should be bursting with vibrant colour.

This is what my to do list looks like:

Leave my office in a condition that shouldn't be too out of control when I return
Christmas shop for the family in Canada
Sort out food for Alex to last two weeks;  Andy sorted this out, thankfully
Buy presents for my gorgeous niece - stopping was much harder than I thought!
Manage to have my hair coloured by someone other than my stylist and not get the result I was hoping for
Get the bedding washed and dried  (Gotta love fresh sheets!)
Make sure we have everything ready for our 7.5 hour flight
Pick up the items from my mother-in-law to deliver to her doggie friend whilst in Ontario
Take Molly on a long walk
Enjoy a glass of wine
Pack
Get Molly packed to take over to Dawn and Roberts for her holiday
Have a few drinks with Robert and Dawn when we drop Molly off

Because we are due at Dawn's in approximately one hour, I better get my arse in gear and go start packing my bag.  When we get back tonight I'm taking a long soak in the bath.  Tomorrow will be a long day but I don't think anything could detract me from this high... Internet, I just don't think I've been clear enough in letting you know just how ecstatic I am to meet this little girl. Or maybe I have.
