Well, accommodation has been sorted, new clothing purchased, apart from the Anzac floppy hat with the corks, because apparently they are only available to buy in Australia.
Flight has been booked (middle of next week now) and sleepless nights through needless worry are getting more infrequent.
Girlfriend apparently taking over his car, but we're taking the cat and fish tank, along with half a ton of storage stuff going up into our loft.
The Oz accommodation has AC, power, pool and gym all inclusive.....nice to see these students roughing it!
I've told him all about the expensive gadget situation, and he has confirmed this with his Prof in Sydney, and is therefore stuffing anything and everything electrical and useful into the suitcase, as he was 5 kilos under at last weighing session.
He's also taking his best laptop with him as carry on luggage, as per Hinge's suggestion.
He's a bit of a pasta/healthy food freak and by all accounts, Italian and seafood are big out there, so he should at least be pigging out properly whilst there.
All we need now is the mega rich brewing heiress to turn up and sweep him off his feet!
The cat has not been informed of her pending move yet. This will take place at a formal briefing session over the weekend, and only AFTER she has had a large bowl of her favourite fishy things. I am buying sturdy gloves, just in case.
