and I'm not ready and not sure I can really be bothered leaving the house for anything.
We've just spent 4 hours at a scout den. The New Zealand Scout Jamboree is in 5 days. We've packed and packed and loaded and loaded. Everything from a entire kitchen (which the scouts have to build!), a washing machine powered by a bike, army size tens, tresle tables, seats, wooden bench seats, huge number of bamboo poles, equipment like camp stretchers and pillows for the Australian troop we are hosting - the equipment and packing is something else - incredible to watch! All the boy's gear has been packed in big 60L plastic containers as a lot easier to freight down. They are chartering a plane and no luggage is allowed on the plane.
it took hours and hours and hours of packing and labelling clothing with not just a name, but a troop name, a site number and a number. On it went. One kid has truly got zero underwear left now and barely any clothes left for the next 5 days.
It will be an adventure. Now all I really want to do is sleep. We have a kid with zero Christmas gifts. I still have not done any food shopping for tomorrow... Dad had open heart surgery 2 days ago.
I think I've run out of Christmas inspiration/interest really!
