A Major Depression Approaching From the East

Oh dear, oh dear, woe is me. Hubby & I are depressed. We can now commence the game of 'where were we this time last year?', for today is the one year anniversary of the start of our seven month trip to North & Central America and Europe. I can't believe it's a whole year. Hubby has just said 'If someone had said a year ago that today we would be heading off to antenatal classes and you'd be seven and a half months pregnant we wouldn't have believed them'. And I wholeheartedly agree with that statement.

So, this time last year we were awaiting the arrival of the carpet cleaning man and the oven cleaning man; we were rushing around maniacally trying to find homes for all the things that we still hadn't put away so that the house would be ready to be let out to our tenants. Then at 12noon the taxi arrived to take us to Heathrow for our flight to Los Angeles. Once we were on board, that's when it felt like the trip we'd been planning for several months had really started. Until that moment it was hard to believe we were actually going to be travelling for quite a major length of time. We were soooooo excited.

After landing at LAX, we picked up a hire car (henceforth known as Misty), and drove to Santa Monica where we spent our first night.

If you want to read about our travels in more detail, you can have a look at the blog I wrote when we were on the road

Otherwise, you can tune in here for (possibly) daily updates of 'Where were we this time last year?'. Bet you can hardly wait!

And now, instead of jetting off to LA, it's time for hubby & I to head off to a five-hour antenatal class. That's enough time to actually give birth, isn't it?!
