Until now, it's been but a distant thought. Something a long way away. Something that will come in time.

Today.... It's real.

I didn't sleep. I COULDN'T sleep. Right now, I'm excited. Like Christmas Eve or something. I'll definitely be needing nightol if I don't wanna look like a Zombie by Friday!

My god guys it's on us!!!

Ok, so I need to make this thread at least have SOME value... Hmmm let me think....

Nope that's it. Just really really excited now! :-D

Anybody else not able to sleep? :cooldude:

It's sort of sneaked up on me and I'm not organised enough :oops:

Couldn't find my car insurance docs anywhere so had to call for replacements. Then had to endure a 15 minute arguement with someone I couldn't understand (and he couldn't understand me either!) debating whether I had European cover :bad-words:

I've no idea what to pack clothes-wise either .... oh what a dilemma! :lol:

I'm feel quite nervous about it all now..

And I'm sure I'm going to forget something

(just had a vision of Sharky chasing the car up the road shouting stop :lol: )

I've got to much going on at work to think about it at the moment. My passenger is excited. But on friday I have to:

Buy 4 new tires as all are gone
Change number plates to euro types (front plate is cracked so might as well)
Change money up
Pack last of belongings

and many other odds and sods

But on a good note, my area manager wants to sit down with me on thursday and talk about a possible promotion to works supervisor :WOOT

Im not payed until Friday, hence why its all to be done then, but got day off work so its just a matter of running around town.
Dover is only 50 odd miles, so wont need to convoy like the rest of the group.

Ladies and Gentlemen.

I am now officially in a state of some mild excitement and anticipation. There is also potential for giddyness.

Just thought you should know...

Oh my goodness... :shock: :lol:

I'm just watching the clock tick down now so I can leave work and drive down to South Wales to hook up with Salem... *taps fingers*

I must admit I'm now faintly excitable and growing more so by the hour. By the time I reach Salem I'll be ripe to burst. :oops: See you guys soon...

That's almost as late as me - I don't finish work till tomorrow lunchtime - then need to drive 200 miles north to get home, and start packing the "first" of my belongings!

If i get home reasonably early, I also want to swap my rears

Then i'll drive back down sometime sat morning...

at least i've picked up my money, & headlight converters today, and got the car serviced yesterday, so it's not like i've not started!
