Sending things packing

I am in that annoying period where I want to finish packing my bag for my trip, but I can't because I'm still using things.   I sent a few things up by post to Mr H, like shoes and thick fleeces and big pots of body moisturiser, because I'm only taking a carry-on bag (budget flying!) and that is my laptop rucksack now I am taking my work laptop with me. 

I'm working out how much I can wear for the flight, and reckon I can manage my furry gilet and my down jacket (no way I'm going without that); and of course my furry boots.  Here is a picture I drew for Mr H so he knows what to expect..



That should pretty much guarantee that Western Scotland enjoys an unseasonable heatwave in mid-November....

  1. I really hope that you don't go for the heat wave. When we went to Alaska, I was prepared for cold and cool weather but for the week we were inland it was dang hot a lot of the time!

  4. Joey: no, Flybe from Southampton, but they still charge for hold luggage. Not quite such rip off artists as EJ or Ryanair though ;-)

  5. Karen: yes I quite like being limited as to how much I can take - it's liberating!

  6. Oh you're going to Scotland to visit, I WISH I could come with you. I don't suppose that would be cool though, as you need your time with the Mister I'm sure.

    Maybe someday (after I win the lotto) I can stop and get you on the way and you can show me around Scotland eh?

  8. Sadly with my crappy circulation due to Raynauds thats pretty much how I'm dressed now :( and its only marginly cold. I Think I'm in for a bad winter this year as I'm reacting quite badly to the cold this time round :(.

    I hope you have the most wonderful time. I can still remember my trip to Scotland, My friend and I went to Lochness then the week after I stayed at his house, he came from down south so I got experience the New forest as well. Which is another stunning place.

  9. Chibi, my two favourite places :-)

    I get a touch of Raynauds in my fingers occasionally but not regularly. I feel for you, stay warm xx
