Stress of leaving something behind. 

So in a couple of days my little amazing family are joining my extended family on a holiday for my Uncle and soon to be Aunty for their weddings not Vanuatu. We are stay in a beautiful house which has five bathrooms. I’m feeling a bit stressed trying to organise everybody to be ready to go. I have written lists of what we need to take. 

First priority is the PASSPORTS, PARTNER ,CHILDREN and MAGIC BEANS wouldn’t be here now if it wasn’t for the magic beans they have saved me from getting lost in the world of motherhood. I can’t recommend these these little beauties as they have kept me sane, healthy, happy, motivated, energetic. I would be able to walk everywhere without these as they give me life and without them I get run down and a bit sad, lonely, emotional is the word I need there. 

 They have also been able to keep me afloat with being a mum and working two days a week. I’m hoping that they will be paying for themselves soon as my biz will take off and be helping my family by providing another source of income for us to use to save to buy our first family home. I have always dreamt of owning my first home so that I have a stable roof over our families heads so we don’t have to continue to move and look for rentals. 
In a couple of months the housemy famliy currently live in with my sister and my main man (best friend) will be getting knocked down and on the block they will construct three town houses. We are currently looking at rentals to rent but the owners are not picking us to rent their amazing properties. I’m not sure if there is enough houses for the growing number of people who need to find a rental to live in. 

These are my lists of things we need to take. If you know of things that we should take please Let me know so that we can have a nice stress free holiday together with my extended family.  I have a double stroller or two singles which ones would be better to take. Help me!!

I think that’s all we need to take. I will be starting packing our bags tonight so I don’t forget anything as I have never been to Vanuatu and don’t know what is available over there. I have already put all our passports into the bag so I don’t forget them as that would be devastating if we forgot those as we wouldn’t be able to get on the plane for the holiday. 

I have to go back to do some more last minute shopping as my partner and I don’t have shoes for the wedding yet. I’m struggling to find a good pair as its a beach wedding and don’t know what type I should be trying to find. I just have to find a size 13 in mens for my partner in a dressy shoe. 

I wish I had all the money in the world as it would be easier when buying things I need and like.
