It's the Final Countdown...

One week to go! ARRRGGGHHHH! So much still to do. We are still frantically packing and painting. Well, when I say 'we' and 'frantically', obviously I just mean me. Hubby never does anything 'frantically', he's too laid back.

So I am frantic and he his calm; hopefully, like the tortoise and the hare, we'll both get there in the end.

Just five more rooms to paint, lots of 'stuff' to pack away (where does all this 'stuff' come from?), and everything we need for a 17 week trip to cram in to a rucksack. Hubby says he's going to pack tonight. Easy for him, he's only taking one pair of pants and a toothbrush. Whereas, being a girlie, I have to pack creams for this, creams for that, lotions for this, potions for that, tablets for this, capsules for that, not to mention a gazillion copies of Hello...

All the 'stuff' is the wife's!

Do you know she has packed up 12 pairs of flip flops that she isn't taking on our trip.

Then there are all the candles and picture frames she has bought!
