Things are moving at a rapid pace, the meeting in London last week with Save the Children was full on and fantastic. I have never worked with people with such energy and enthusiasm before, the whole place was buzzing. My fellow travellers are lovely people (phew) and I managed to make it to my appointment to be jabbed a lot only fifteen minutes late.
On our journey to London (once we had got onto the right train, we almost ended up in Weymouth…how we are going to find Mozambique goodness only knows) Lindsay revealed that she had been to Itchy Feet and had purchased some ‘Special Trousers‘! Apparently, these are miracle trousers which can be washed and dried in an instant and are the must have for the international traveller.
I mentioned them in passing to Mr Thinly Spread for in the general run of things I am ill-equipped for a trip out of Somerset never mind to Africa. His blue eyes gleamed and he disappeared into cyber world for a few moments before emerging triumphant with REPELLANT TROUSERS!
He has bought me a pair of Craghopper trousers which repel insects. He bought them in the sale at half price. This is why I love him!
Today, I am trying to get my head around packing. I haven’t flown for 15 years (and then only to the Isle of Man), the furthest I have ever flown is Greece. I am in need of some top tips from all you lovely international travellers out there. Please!
