It’s 7.50 on Monday morning and today is the day I fly away. I’m blurry eyed and a bit queasy. I’m desperate to rush upstairs and wake my babies and gather them in my arms and squeeze really tightly.

There is a silence in the house, a waiting. I am almost holding my breath. Soon there will be the thunder of many feet, cupboard doors will be flung open and breakfasts consumed. I will be rushing around making sure everyone is sorted, making sure I have everything and then…

Goodbyes are so hard to say.

Adventure Begins. Time to make a difference.

Please follow me as I begin my journey! I will be blogging here at Thinly Spread and vlogging every day at In The Powder Room. This is our chance to make a difference to so many lives, to make our voices heard, to stand up in the face of injustice and shout NO! We are mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters…hear us ROAR.

Use the hashtag #passiton on Twitter, retweet like billy-oh, join in memes and twitter parties, blog, vlog and flog. We have reached 7 million people already, local and national media are very interested in what we are doing…let’s whip up an on-line storm and help those world leaders to make the right decision.

If you have no idea what I am talking about either because you have been hiding in a cupboard or because you don’t hang on my every word (and who can blame you? I waffle on an awful lot of the time…my family filter me) Look here and then go here and sign the petition. Thank you.
