Counting down the days

Well, we’ve been checking the weather and things are looking positive for my launch on Thursday (Sept 28).

We are drawing up final plans and if all goes well I will be going up into space at 6pm.

I’m a little nervous about it all but I am also very, very excited.

This time round I have better equipment and more experience so I am sure my next adventure will have even better results.

Phil Jones, Head Geek at Pool Academy, has told me there could be lots of children coming along to wave me good bye. It would be so wonderful to have a big crowd to see me off.

I hope you all can come.

Thank you to everyone who entered my competition. Just reading all those entries gives me hope that I will be in safe hands.

I look forward to meeting the winners Miss Meakin picked too.

See you soon.
