Ok everything is ready to be packed, my DD Kylie is already packed & also full of cold !!! Yes its vitamin c, enchinoforce & calcivitas all round in our house.
I do not normally agree to take gifts for others but its always inevitable that I say yes if its small, not because I am mean or horrible its because I always like to take gifts myself & we have a riduculous 22kg weight limit...... well over the last few months I have been accumulating a "few" odds and ends for my family - very small. HA HA - well we had a whole dining room table of things that we had accumulated & we need to take a small suitcase just for the overflow that can't fit into both our cases.
Today we charged camera batteries, did last minute special washing, spent a few minutes catching up with both my BIL & SIL re plugs and adaptors etc. Crossed of lists of "to do's" and actually got a lot done. Needless to say the fact that it is very cold in Durbs today helped.
Very importantly we "packed our scrap bag" but only with bare essentials - oh boy it was awful taking out all your favourite "can't do without" to just pack things like craft knives, scissors, pencils,metal rulers, adhesives etc - really bare essentials - I was putting in inks & brads & flowers & DD was taking them out...... no Mom you can't take your stash of ribbons & flowers no matter how light they are. I am lucky to get my thin & normal double sided tape. Thank goodness my neices & SIL are willing to share... especially my SIL who has extra trimmers etc - so a very big thank you to her ...... I guess that whats so special about scrappers they share & care.
I hope I will update my blog a few times during our trip & see whats happening in blogland too.
