Under 6 weeks to go ... eeeek

Golly Gosh, I just realised I have just under 6 weeks before THE BIG trip.  So much to think about, mainly, what clothes to take .. What does one take to wear in May/June in England?  I have too many choices that's my problem .. then oh my, one word, shoes!  How many can I take, mmmm.  Beside my stuff I have to take alsorts over for Kylie (my sister) Bickfords Iced Coffee concentrate, Cherry Ripes, Minties, T'Shirts, an Atlas and a few other books. Then of course all my tech gear, laptop, mobile scanner, discs, external hard drives, phone, chargers, camera ..... endless.  I hope my suitcase is a bottomless pit.  I can always use some of Emily's and Craig's suitcases! LOL.  AND yes, Sooty is coming with me :-) much to my family's disgust!

    I am finding the print easy to read, it helps having the black background. Now for some more stories .......

  5. Layers is the answer for clothes. Put everything you think you want on a bed then put half of it back in the wardrobe!

    Comfy shoes, if you are taking boots wear them (you'll take them off on the long haul flights) that way you don't waste the weight allowance. and a dressier pair.
    Weather can be variable I took Mum in June and we froze in 2004 but that can vary also depending how far north you head. The colder the farther north. A windproof jacket is a must especially if it is also waterproof. Remember there are charity/op-shops everywhere so you can always buy more clothes that you can either dump or re-donate before you come home. An under T-shirt for extra warmth and then about three changes of clothes.

    Have wonderful fun and I'm looking forward to the regular updates!

    1. Thanks Helen. I will layer, luckily I don't need to take a heavy jacket or anything as my sister lives there and I shall borrow hers if needed. I think I will checkout the op-shops there, they sound great. Most of my time will be in either London or Sussex!
