Off to Italy tomorrow! I am very excited, even if I cannot keep my eyes open a second longer to pack. Half my clothes are still scattered on the floor. I am doing the sort of tired packing which, when my suitcase is opened later in a smart holiday destination, will reveal a snorkel, flourescent cycling shorts, a fleece jumper and a sparkly snood.
And I think I have packed too much - after all, it's only a week, right? J will have one rucksack, and I (so far) have accumulated five bags, including a small suitcase. It's a good thing we are driving, as at least I can stuff bags in around the sides. At least that is my plan. Not sure what J's is, but I doubt it involves driving off into the sunset with a car packed full of shoes.
But I really have to down tools now, and get myself to bed. We're off at six tomorrow morning, so I shall bid you all a fond farewell - have a lovely week, and will report in when I get back!
