|In Prague in the middle of winter a few years ago.|
Great joy in my home right now: we are getting ready for our holiday (Brom and I, Miss Oswin will look after the place). I will have to pack a lot, since I will be gone for three whole weeks and make sure I don't forget anything. A whole load of cables and loading thingies will need to come. As well as a couple (well, 3) cameras, the big holiday book, my Kindle, some USB-sticks and several other bits and bobs.
Of course I will need clothes and shoes as well. For three weeks. Now, I had thought that since it was autumn, the weather would be quite autumnal. But, just so I know how much sweaters and rain coats I actually needed to take, I checked out the weather forecast for the area we will be visiting.
Our first stop (my parents) should see us in summer mode. Lovely. And then I checked our other destinations and the only thing it showed was sunshine and high temperatures. Which means I can probably forget about the rain gear and bring sunscreen instead! Another problem I have is that I haven't got a great deal in summer clothes. I live after all in Norway! But that was a problem that could easily be solved: go shopping.
Well, I got two of the cheapest pairs of shorts I could find, because, well, a. I don't normally need shorts and b. I had gone down a size. Yes, you read it right, I have gone down a size and since I plan on continuing with this triathlon training thingy, it could mean that I will loose some more weight over the next months. In which case I don't want to get stuck with a whole lot of clothes that are too big for me!
Anyway, one more night and then I will be off. I will be flying first class or business class or whatever it is called, which means an extra allowance of luggage, which might well get used.
