Why I feel pressurised by this, who knows, I ALWAYS pack for EVERY trip and always have, including my husband's things, when he travels with us!
This will be our first big outing without him and I feel a huge weight is on my shoulders....what if the car breaks down....what if...what if....He can mend just about anything and he keeps me calm when things go wrong...and I will miss him... soppy I know, it's only four nights! But I will miss his company and the re-assurance of him being in the passenger seat beside me. I always drive because I get so travel-sick. Anyway it is a journey we need to make, the children are getting older and we like to visit family once a year, so they can see their cousins and I can see my sisters. Usually we go as our main holiday, but this year we're hoping to go for a week of camping somewhere else.
Our ferry leaves Dublin at 8am and we are about an hour and a half away from there, so kids will be lifted from beds at an un-Godly hour and put in car-seats and I will cry as I kiss him good-bye and than be embarrassed when my sister-in-law sees me! I'm teary just writing this!
I hope I still feel like this in twenty years! Sorry for the gushy post...not like me normally...now get a grip woman and do some packing!
I made a couple of new tops for the little ones to wear while we're away, I thought they'd be nice and comfy for travelling, we have about twenty hours of driving over four days.
I used the Kamomilla pattern from Ottobre 01/2010. Size 86cm. The sleeves are a bit baggy, but that's ok, I suppose. I have been practicing with my over-locker and used it to do everything except the top-stitching on the neck binding. The fabric is from Sewfabrics on eBay. The ribbing is from Dots'n'Stripes. Both of these lovely shops have sent large parcels to my sister, for me to collect when I get to her. I save on postage that way, It means the only clothes I can bring for myself, is a change of underwear, but it will be worth it!
No I didn't really mean it.....but not far off it!
