I’ve done it again!…posted a grumpy comment on tripadvisor today, instead of minding my own business……and this morning I over reacted to something Michael said, resulting in a door slamming, shrieking argument. (me doing the door slamming etc
This is the last weekend and five days before my next Paris trip and I frantically clean the house and try to do ALL the washing before I go. Even though Michael is staying at home and is perfectly capable of cleaning the house while I am away.
I snap at everybody, Even the woman on the radio who is talking on a phone for gardening!.
Stragely this only happens before a Paris trip. I go away about once a month, but it is only at the Gare du Nord, do I heave a sigh of relief, AHHHH! and feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
I am fascinated by luggage. Always browsing in luggage shops hoping to find the perfect receptacle to take on my travels….. light as a feather, small enough to fit in the hand luggage bin, yet roomy enough to hold enough all my essentials for a month in the Arctic!
I have not found it yet but my two current favourites, a small Caterpillar carryon and a larger Tripp valise come close.I m tempted to pay an extra £25 to take the valise. Trouble is I find packing tends to expand to fir the case allotted to it!.
I am turning into my mother!…she would drive me mad by starting to pack at least two weeks before her annualSpanish holidays. Now I find myself putting my clothes to one side for a couple of weeks before a trip and I will have a couple of “practise packs” ….it is not as if i don’t KNOW how to pack! and I end up wearing old tatty underwear for at least a week because I am saving my “best” underwear for the trip.
How I wish I could be a “throw it in at the last minute” type of girl.
……Not to mention the obligatory manicure, eyebrows and other “bits” I HAVE to have done before I go. Why? nobody will see them, ..unless I suddenly decide to take a French lover.
Chance would be a fine thing! LOL!
