HOLI-DAY MINUS ONE DAY . . .
Today was an okay day once again. I got loads accomplished in the morning, went out for a nice lunch with a couple of my friends, and in the afternoon finally got some stuff sorted out workwise that's been bugging me for a while. So feeling quite good now, despite the fact I have still tons to do to get ready for my holibags.
Is taking nine books overkill??? Possibly. But probably not. Seriously, I go through them like lightning on holiday. And a couple of them are only small. I quite often plan what books I'm taking with me like it's a millitary operation. I know it's sad, but if I start to run out while on holiday I get panicky.
I still haven't completely decided what to take clothes wise either. You see, generally we go half board but this time we're going self catering. Which is kinda a relief to be honest as generally I don't really like the buffets they tend to put on in half board places. But my mum isn't a big eating-out person, so we will probably stay in a lot, and therefore I won't need many dressy clothes. But I LIKE to dress up on holiday. I don't know about you but I'm far more likely to wear a dress, short skirt or hotpants than I am abroad than I am at any other time. Even in the summer in Scotland, I'm more likely to stick to jeans. So holidays give me a sense of freedom, I guess, fashion-wise.
Anyway, guess I'd better get back to it now. The suitcase is flapping open emptily, I feel like it's yelling at me. You all remember my feelings on packing, right???
