Ugh!

Packing - I hate it. I get into a sort of paralysed state where I can't do anything until the last minute. Got to learn to make decisions.

The other thing is I bought a bunch of fabric for some summer clothes for Chloe and all I want to do is make them. I'm cutting it a bit tight timewise!

Edited to add: Note to self - not a good idea to try making new things when you are tired, excited and rushing. Some big stuff ups have occurred here this afternoon! Also, just remember, if you have secret plans to buy your daughter a summer wardrobe in Paris that you haven't mentioned to your husband but have been quietly researching where to buy it, you really don't need to decide to try to sew her an entire summer wardrobe two days before you leave.

I am so hearing you on the pre-holiday paralysed state! It takes us a full day to pack and go anywhere. And yep, last holiday I was sewing holiday clothes the morning we had to leave. Just pack light for Chloe then you will *have to* take her shopping when you get there!

Adrenalin is very helpful for packing ... and last minute sewing for that matter!

Have a wonderful holiday.

Once you're gone it doesn't seem to matter so much what's in the bag - hope you're having a great time!
