Which actually brings me to my latest achievement. I have now gone over a week without any chocolate at all!!!!!! This may not seem like such a big deal to some of you, but when it comes to me that is a pretty huge deal. Especially when you consider how much chocolate is on board and readily available at my fingertips. I wondered aloud why I wasn't instantly skinny and was given a reply that it was because even though I had cut out chocolate I was still eating lots of other food! Valid point.
Tonight Digby, our cameraman will arrive so the whole team will be together which is good. I'm also eagerly awaiting the arrival of my aunty and uncle who have come out to help me wave the flag for the Scott family! We've also had Geoffy from the delivery crew arrive. He and Julian are outside attempting to fix something. I'm laying low so that I don't get dragged into some obscure 'hold this piece of rope job'! Look at them though, they're like two men scheming away, I've nicknamed them Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee!
Departure day of Thursday is not too far away and I'm sure will come around very quickly. I just got the sweetest pep talk email from my Grannie telling me that nerves are all a normal part of the process of such an exciting adventure. It's all coming together though, as they say, she'll be right!
