Preparation

It’s approximately three months until we leave the UK for Zambia.  We knew that we’d wait until getting back from Canada to start preparing and in my mind this was ages away.  Well, Jacob has arrived, Mum and Dad have visited, and our time in Canada has come and gone.  We are back now and it’s time to prepare.

We’ve made a long list of things we need to do to get ready: international drivers licenses, sort out of flat, sell our furniture, figure out what to do with our car, book flights, find somewhere to live in Zambia, immunisations and the list goes on and on…

As part of our move we have several things we need to invest in…

I bought a Kindle this week.  I know we won’t be taking any of my books to Zambia so I got a Kindle so I can read until my hearts content, without any of the space or weight of books.

Dan bought Jacob a blow up bathtub this week as well.  While we’ll have running water in Zambia, we want to be conscious of how much we use, so a little bathtub for him should do the trick.

We are also scouting out a Peapod tent for Jacob which will be his bed when we get there.  It works as a mosquito net as well.  Friends of ours recommended this so we’ll be investing in one of these soon.

So basically we’ve been shopping and haven’t really been sorting out much on the rest of the long list.  We’ll get to those things eventually 🙂
