Last minute preparation

The temperature far more manageable. A humid and rainy preparation and packing day, hampered slightly by the men from BT replacing a telephone pole outside our house.

Laundry to be done. Lorraine and I took the stuff over to the laundrette to dry, as we had so much of it. I abandoned her there and then went down to the gym to have a good session there. Repacking and weighing our case so that it came in a smidge under 22 kilos.

Home and Pat and Maureen arrived in the evening to cats and have a holiday break of their own in Brighton. Chatted to Mum and Lorraine talked to Sam, who is considering picking up the threads of his PhD again, which is good news.

L and I crept off to bed fairly early, in a futile attempt to sleep before getting up a few hours later.
