What in the world to take??

I was pretty confident on what I was going to pack for this summer long trip. I’ve been to the UK several times, in all different seasons. Summer was going to be cool, maybe warming up a bit in August. I got my cute little outfits in mind.

Then I see a prediction of this year’s English summer and it says HEATWAVE! I’ve experienced a British summer heatwave in 1984. It was HOT, I mean REALLY HOT, and no air conditioning to be had….anywhere! So now the panic sets in. How can I be prepared for all the options that could be in store in only 2 suitcases. Come on, you didn’t think I would be able to pull this off in the one allowed checked suitcase did you??

I leave one week from today, still have one week of school left (don’t want to have to do a lot of laundry next Saturday) and this is what I have.


Not looking too promising. So, yesterday I went out to the pool to get away from the stress. Today I’m going to go get a pedicure, hoping something will come to me and packing will be a snap when I return. I’ll let you know how that works out.

Adventure officially begins!

I did it!  2 suitcases, UNDER the weight limit…just barely.
