On Saturday I'm hoping to take Lily to Lapland (which is at the very top of Finland) to see the 'real' Father Christmas.
I took Seth a few years ago and it was amazing - he had such a great time and I got to see the Northern Lights which was just incredible. We both had certificates for Crossing the Arctic Circle which Seth thought was really cool!
My only problem is I hate flying. I'm terrified and have already got a headache and an upset stomach.
I know I'm a fool to put myself through this but if I didn't I'd never get to go anywhere plus Saturday is all about Lily and her having a truly magical and memorable day. I know this may seem an extravagant trip so I'm keen to point out that we are not 'flashy' people at all - as I've left it til last minute to book there's a big discount and it's such a fantastic experience for children that I'm willing to make sacrifices elsewhere - beans on toast for me for the next few weeks!
I never used to be scared of flying but since I've had the children my anxiety levels are through the roof.
Anyone else out there with an age induced fear of flying (or just anyone with a ton of common sense) who can offer me some advice to help ease my churning belly??!!
This is no joke - I need some serious shaking and a good slap to sort myself out!
