No point in ironing if you are going to packit. It will be creased when you get there anyway. Ironing is well overratedin my opinion!

Hi Picklesmum...I'm with you on the ironing and I don't normally bother...except...the clothes we are taking look so crumpled, thanks to my poor laundry management skills (always happens when I use the tumble dryer), so they need a once over to get rid of the ridges and get the "freshly creased" look rather than crumpled style. One day, I'll learn ;-D

I'm bored with packing now! Can't decide what to wear on Sunday. Taking 2 extra outfits just in case (in case of what ~ I just don't know). Still waiting for clothes to dry...I think I'll be up until midnight (as usual) Ah, C'est la vie...a demain ;-)

Hi Happy Tracks - thanks for popping over. When I get back, I'll be coming over to your site again, it's fab.

Bon voyage 21st Century Mummy! Enjoy your holidays (and ticking things of that scarily long list!)

Hi MaL - It was rather a long list. 21st C Dad always tells me off for being over ambitious or erm so disorganised to have not done it all before. Got most of it done though! ;-)
