Well, I have just packed everything I can think of. Of which I can think. You know what I mean. But to be quite honest, as long as I have the passports and tickets and the wallet, I am not bothered too much. Mind you, as long as DAVID has HIS wallet, we will be just fine. I have a son who never spends any money. How did I manage that??!
It is cooler today, and that is really welcome. A friend is fetching us from the airport tomorrow, so that is even better. My friends are wonderful. I have NO idea where I put the house key. Now may be a really good time to check! Hang on a sec.....
I am back. 2 hours later. I found the key with the case locks. Why I didn't check there first I have no idea. So now I am in that in between time. Here but half there, and packed yet not on my way. Wanting to go and yet equally wanting to stay.
Apparently my garden is a jungle. I sort of expected that to happen, as it is totally inevitable when you are not there to keep things under control. But I will knock it back into shape, with a rope tied round the waist in case I get lost.
Home seems very far away at the moment. And of course I am sad to be leaving. It is never easy for me.
Almost as though they know what I am feeling, I have had a marked increase in text messages from home today from my friends. They know me well. So l am going to sign off for now, and go and look at the mountains one last time because we are leaving here at 5am tomorrow. I will be reporting in from home in a day or so.
Be good, and enjoy the last days of the summer!
