Greg has landed. No problem getting equipment through customs­-he looks so trustworthy.

Day 6: Route planned. Up most of the night with a jet-lagged Geordie drawing and then re-drawing about it.

Cops turned up at one point. They stayed outside our block for ages. Really scared me. Thought someone had been monitoring me. Turns out there was a domestic across the street.

Greg had brought everything around with him. We were told it would be a doddle but we donıt have a clue what to do with it.

Had to Skype Benjamin in London. Thank God for geeks. He may know a little more about Star Wars than is right for grown man but he makes anything simple for simple folk like me.

Day 7: Plans all in place now: we know the route we're taking, we know when we're doing it, and I even know which button to press.

Greg managed to sort out a helicopter. Was amazing to look down on the city one last time ­ totally amazing perspective. Made me realise how incredible what we're about to do will be.

Need to get a good night's sleep ­ if that's possible. My heart is racing and my brain feels like I've had twenty quadruple espressos in the last five minutes.

Will put Hunky Dory on and see if I can drift off.

Day 8: D-Day. I can't really believe that this is happening. I won't have time to write today. I hope it goes to plan. It's going to take hours but as long as the satellite stuff works everything will be fine.">
