We leave tomorrow.

Put everyone in charge of their own packing this morning, and retreated to the bedroom to spend a gorgeous, relaxing day doing desultory ironing while dreaming up my new hero. Should, however, have anticipated the glaring flaws in this plan, or at least have explained with devastating clarity what was meant by the term 'essential items'. Am adamant this does not include a Barbie horse and carriage, sequinned party shoes or 4 hot water bottles.

The Pimms and the ice box stay.

Hehehe - no wonder the kids all get on so well since they obviously share the same packing gene. In fact my kids can't actually move between rooms without transporting a camel train of essential items. Have a great holiday!!

What? Say it isn't so, India. How can essentials not include sequinned party shoes? What about electric blue mascara and a feather boa? Those are essential, right?

Congratulations on reaching the finish line and getting the wip off your desk.

Hope you all have a fab holiday.
