So, we’ve got one whole week until I go away on holiday and I’m already getting the urge to pack. This is nothing new. I like to be organised, and I quite like to have my case out in plenty of time to fill it to the brim.
Alex hates this with a passion. He says it only takes him five minutes to pack – Which is actually quite a hefty exaggeration, as much as he argues against it! I like to call him the holiday lead man… He certainly takes at least a few hours looking for and packing up all the leads that we need to take with us. Laptops, cameras, phones, adaptor plugs, you name he will pack it in his peculiar lead bag. Then, he might think about packing some clothes once that’s done. MUST PACK LEADS FIRST!
I’ve got better at packing – Mainly because I need to delay getting the case out, due to the fat cat and his urge to sit in it or on it! It’s not like I haven’t had years of practice. I’ve been packing and unpacking since I went to boarding school, at the age of seven.
Still, I wouldn’t mind if Alex got the cases down from the loft tonight and at least gave me the option to start. It just makes the holiday seem so much closer, and I certainly do hate the last minute rushing about.
Do you take ages to pack? Or do you leave it all until the last minute?
