So it begins, the packing in anticipation of months away, the travel itinerary, the freezer to empty. Yes all happening but for now I've got my toe nails painted for our journey which starts apparently at 3 am on Wednesday morning. These are my new sparkly sandals, a bit smarter than the usual flipflops though many pairs of the latter will be worn believe me.
I've packed a few pots of nail polish for the duration though I'm pretty certain I have a good stock already in the house. I'm particularly liking the blue that I've been wearing for the past few weeks.
Lots of colours in my knitting bag too with various odds of yarn that I have every intention of using, plus my grammar book for reference en route. I'm knitting some plain socks in these girly colours, hopefully there will be more consumption during the journey.
I'm making the pattern up as I go along, I'll probably finish the toe with the contrast and maybe have a different stripe in the second sock.
The new curtains for the lounge are sorted too, the main body will be beige, I think it's called twine, with a bottom edge of dark brown and the tiniest line of red between the two.
Mr FF has installed the track, the curtains won't be made until we know when we are coming home but nice that we won't have bare windows over the winter. Winter, lets not talk about that, though this time I must take some sensible shoes for the journey home, not that we want to mention the journey home either. We should be in our house by the weekend and may catch a stage of the Tour de France on the way.
