This is the first (and experimental) post for the Farrells' blog.
Tommy officially left work yesterday at the Parkside Federation. A very strange day - saying goodbye to some really nice people and excellent colleagues. We are now madly trying to get organised and packed in time to go. We still haven't bought any luggage - although that should be sorted tomorrow. Sarah's got an appointment at the hospital for half of Monday and it seems like we have a lot to do in not much time.
We fly from Heathrow on Thursday at 10:25am to arrive in Dallas at 2:30pm local time with an hour and a half transfer to the Mercy Ships base. We will be flying back from Dallas on Monday 28th July to arrive back in the UK on Tuesday morning.
At the moment that is when all of our plans run out. After that who knows? At some point between then and Christmas we hope to join up with the Africa Mercy in Liberia or (later) Tenerife.
If you want to write to us (snail mail) in Texas then the address is:

We will try to keep this up to date with information and pics from the states. Neither of us have blogged before so lets hope we keep at it!
