Jayne goes on a Travel Adventure

Things I Should Be Doing Right Now

Drifting around the house in elegant pre-holiday clothes
Relaxing in a candle-lit bath to prepare for holiday in a Decent Fashion
Admiring my neatly packed suitcase, hand-luggage and snowboard bag
Preparing for an early refreshing night of peaceful sleep

Things I Am Actually Doing Right Now

Bailing cats from suitcases
Scurrying up the stairs with armfuls of clothes that don't fit in suitcase
Checking snowboard bag for determined tabby
Weighing suitcase; surprisingly pleased
Scurrying down the stairs to sneak more clothes in suitcase
Having a book conundrum
Vague thoughts about whereabouts of passport
Stuffing suitcase with everything I can see in my room
Weighing suitcase; look of horror

Things I Will Be Doing After Inadequate Sleep

Rushing around house in a mad panic wearing one sock

Be good, folks! Looking forward to catching up on your blogs when I'm back. J x

What a fun post! I know all about bailing cats from suitcases :-)
I hope you have a great vacation! Be sure to let us know what you've been reading!

Dolly said...

Oh me oh my - Travel Adventures are the very best kind of all. Have a wonderful time, we will all miss you. Are you sure the kitties wouldn't like a bit of snowboarding? I miss my 2 darlings who have left me for Kitty Heaven, all the time, particularly when I get the suitcase out (tho they hated the sight of it). Bon voyage

The bag will weigh less when you take the cat out. :-)
Have a wonderful time.

Misha said...

Have fun!

And take lots of pictures.


Eliza said...

Have a great time, see you soon :-)

Shirley Wells said...

LOL. I know the feeling. I always expect to unpack in some foreign country and find that I packed one of the cats.

Have fun!

Margo Benson said...

....and breathe! Have a great time (and make sure the cat doesn't have that other sock!)

Happy Frog and I said...

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Oh boy, can I ever relate. You wouldn't believe how must heavier my suitcase was leaving London... full of books! Have a glorious time in Canada! Sounds perfectly wonderful.

And thanks for your kind words about our meeting. I've written about it as well! So much fun!!

Jeanne said...

I love it Jayne!! You sound just like me :)
Coming over from Pamela and so glad to meet you!
Looks like we were both lucky enough to catch up with the lovely Pamela on her recent trip to London. I look forward to following you along. Blogger won't let me for some reason...but I will be back! In the meantime I will follow you along on Twitter.

Best wishes for a fab trip.

Jeanne xx

Hope you're having a great time and you haven't found a stowaway cat in your suitcase :-)
