Pre-Holiday Concerns

Well it's a gorgeous, sunny Sunday.  I expect everyone is getting nice & brown in their gardens.  What have I been doing? Ironing, packing, weighing the case, unpacking, re-organising, packing, weighing .... and so it goes. And I'm still overweight! My case, not me - OK I am too but that's not the priority at the moment.  Are we the only ones that have this problem?  We have an allowance of 20 kilos each & 5 kilos hand luggage.  I am obviously taking too many clothes!  But I can't decide what to leave behind, I like to have my daytime outfits then change for dinner.  And of course there has to be a choice of sandals in 3 different heel heights.  Oh & shorts & T-shirts for the pool area over the 2 or more swimsuit choices.  Then there's the toiletries, the SLR camera with spare lenses, the snapshot camera for emergencies, the iPad and the kindle (at least I'm not having to take 2 or 3 books anymore!) How come I take the same amount of clothes when I go for one week?  Although I am, this time, going for two.  Can I take this in my hand luggage? Have the rules changed again? Won't bother with perfume I can buy some on the plane. Trying to take all the sun cream adds weight too - It'll be damned expensive over there!  But will it be cheaper to pay when we get there and not have to pay for being overweight in our luggage?

I just wonder if everyone does the same?  But then I don't suppose everyone takes as many clothes as me.  I like my choices you see?  Dresses, Skirts, Trousers, Leggings, Shorts. And then there has to be  Stylish, casual, & of course a couple of cardigans just in case of chilly evenings & tops to match all the bottoms!  It was so much easier going on a cruise, no baggage restrictions except they had to be easy for the porters to handle. Take as many cases as you like, no worries about putting hairspray in the suitcase & not in the hand luggage.  I knew there was a reason I liked cruises.  Anyway, packing is all done now - If we're over, were over!  I'll let you know when we get back.  In the meantime, don't have too much sunshine will you?  Or I may as well have stayed home and not worried about the damned luggage!  And can you have some rain while I'm gone too please or else all my yummy veggies are going to shrivel & die.

Take care my friends.  I'll see you in two weeks!
