Bags packed, house sorted…all pigs ready to fly

With such a short time left, and so much to fill our time between now and then, we’re trying to squeeze in a lot. On Saturday we’ve got the local BBC TV station coming to film an interview with us, to be shown on BBC South Today on Monday – how depressing will that be – me seeing myself on TV, which will make me look fatter – and for other people, who’ve just had a ‘Monday morning’, realising that some people have escaped the rat race (temporarily).

We also had a reporter round from BBC Radio Oxford on Wednesday, and apparently they’ve edited that into a report that’s going to be broadcast on Monday morning at 7:50. Time to set up the tape recorder. Charlotte is beginning to enjoy her role as ‘roving reporter’, even though she hasn’t done any roving yet!
