Might actually be ready for my trip!

I think that I’m ready to leave tonight. Yesterday’s sense of complete panic has faded rather than getting worse and I’m actually feeling calm about the trip. It’s probably because my bags are as packed as they can be bearing in mind that I needed my purse and keys at work today and, according to my to do list, I’m actually on track. Tonight’s plans are to take the cats to their holiday home, have a quick shower, change into travelling clothes, eat supper and go to the airport. I should be home by 4pm and I don’t need to leave for the airport until 8pm at the earliest.

Four hours is plently of time, right?

My Quaker contact decided to send me stuff today to go up on the website, urgently because one of the events is on Thursday. I have emailed back and explained politely that I am flying to England tonight so there is no chance that I’ll get onto that today. I might see whether I can get the most urgent stuff sorted out tomorrow afternoon if Da can hook me up to the wireless network at the house. I’ll also have to go to PC World to buy myself a USB mouse because one bit of the request involves graphics and no way in hell can I do graphics on a laptop touch pad.

Why does she always ignore me when I tell her my vacation dates? Or send me stuff three hours before I leave so that I can “quickly sort this before I leave”. Ah, well, there’s nothing I can do about this because tonight’s plans do not have an hour’s wiggle room for last minute website edits. Or, if they do, the wiggle room involves no shower and no supper. Dirty, hungry Sel on overnight flight? Have pity on my fellow travellers!

Right, do some work and then I can get on with starting my holiday. I am going to feel so much happier when I’m at the airport in Tim Horton’s with some hot chocolate and a sock to knit. <lj user=”gmul”> – haven’t spotted any mugs in TH 😦 I can buy tons of coffee and put it into a mug, but currently no mugs to be seen.
