I have spent all day cleaning and tidying and packing and generally getting ready to go on holiday tomorrow. I'm sure there are many of you out there who don't like to come home to an untidy house, and I am definately one of those people. This is strange, because I'll quite happily go out for the day and come back to a messy house. When I laid all the things that I needed to take for Connor and I for a week out on the bed, I thought that there was no way I'd get it all in the little case. But I managed it (although the nighttime pull ups didn't make the cut- i figured there'll be supermarkets out there and if not I have the waterproof sheet packed anyway) and I didn't even have to sit on the case to get it closed. There are two things missing however. The first are my pretty flip flops. I know the last time I wore them (19th July), but can I find them??? No. I love these flip flops. I bought them in Accessorize and they have red and green beads on. I have looked everywhere there and they have disappeared, vanished! So it's the black plastic £2 Tesco jobs that I'll be wearing all holiday :( The second thing missing is 100euros that I had left from the holiday in October, and had two weeks ago but can now no longer find. My Mum, thank you!, bailed me out and brought some money over but where on earth has that gone? Perhaps my flip flops got fed up of the rain too and took the money and went abroad?!
Talking of rain, I was very lucky today. I put the washing on the line first things this morning and it was muggy but mostly white clouds and not grey ones. I then ran some errands (finally registered with a dentist over this side of town!) and got home just as it started to spit with rain. Within minutes it was abolutely chucking it down!!! I managed to get all the holiday items inside and still fairly dry, but as for the rest and myself- we were drenched. What is that about??? It's August!! I am very pleased that I booked a holiday abroad now and will be enjoying my week in the sun/sea/pool.
Have a good week everyone. I hope that my departure will encourage the sun to shine here! x
