Preparations for the big break

Today was a busy day for us, getting bits 'n' bobs organised.

We'll be flying out later this week. Exciting and scary. Exciting for the obvious reasons - holiday abroad. Scary for another reason - paperwork!

Today we went and got a new oil filled radiator for the bedroom - our storage heater in there isn't 't enough to keep the room warm in the evenings. We had a lovely electric fire but earlier this week it gave up the ghost. Bad timing. Mum likes it warm! ;-)

So off we went and got a small radiator, and a new case as one of our two big cases is wonky. No point if we have to drag it around with us for three weeks. Shiny new 'expanding' (!) case for moi!

Also got some fab boots for the evening meals out, and the opera. Can't march into the Met in worn, red hiking boots, can I? And a pair of slingback mules. Both with wooden soles. And nicely reduced! Oh, and a pair of skinny jeans (ignoring my not-exactly-skinny middle), and leggins for under my short blue dress for the opera.

Hubby got himself a few new shirts - they suit him really well. One of them is checked, and I guess it would be the envy of any lumberjack.

So tomorrow it's time to deplete the rainforest. Sadly. :( Papers of our visa registration, our flights, our hotels, our booked tours, simply anything we organised for the trip. Wonder how heavy that bundle will be.

One final day of editing and writing looms, then we'll be running around like mad, trying to gather all our stuff together. I always want to pack too much but hubby told me off - I'm not allowed to use any space in his case (the same size as mine!). No, it's space for stuff we get over in the US.

Ahh, that's ok then. I can go shopping there...
