No, I don't think I'm going to have room for clothes at all!!

I'll make Jack take a massive case too - hopefully that'll solve the problem!

Hi Leanne, great to hear it's not just me!!

It feels so great paying it off!!!!!! Do it sooner if you can, I have felt so good the last couple of days, I don't really knkow why I waited until it was almost the deadline.

Well hopefully by the time you get back I'll have done some of my TR so you'll be able to catch up on a few days. I'm so sad we miss each other by such an annoying amount!

Sounds like you are getting very excited! You can always tell that's the case when the suitcase comes out

Good solution to have Jack bring a big one too. Hopefully, he won't mind it being filled up with all of YOUR stuff in it.

anyway, if you are still in the LGMH making mood, don't forget that I'd LOVE to have one too!!

Have fun with your 2 for 1 sales!

Liesa

Sorry that this thread has been totally abandoned for a while! With the start of the football season we have been busy crazy at work.

At any rate, once you see this thread you'll have wished it wasn't updated, as I can freely admit I may have gone a bit over board with the pre-trip planning!!!

I started my proper packing today!! And thought I would photo document it, as I've seen other PTRs done this way in the past and enjoyed them. So anyone who isn't completely insane like me - look away now! (If you'd told me a year ago I'd be packing 2 weeks before departure AND taking photos of it, I'd have probably smacked you in the face, but then I also wouldn't have believed you I'd be packing for a wedding planning trip to WDW, so I think my "dreams are coming true" type excitement has a lot to do with it!)

Enough for the rambling - her goes with the packing!

First I tackled the most important part of packing to me! The toiletries! Now I left out the copius amounts of medicines and female prodcuts from the photo, as they don't need to be documented!



(How cute are the little hair straighteners! I love them!)

Also I have my sunscreens (and the biggest aftersun ever!):



Then, I packed them (+ non photographed things) into two bags so they can be evenly divided between our suitcases so we'll be OK should a case go missing!



I also sorted out my in park bags, including my MNSSHP candy bag. Jack still needs to make his. I have put a couple of bits in there too, like video camera, mister fans etc.



A couple of weeks ago I made our Mousekeeping envelopes.



Of course the second paper was spread over the spare bed I gained a helper who had previously only been an observer:



(Why do cats love paper so much?)

Once I'd removed Bella, I moved onto hand luggage, this is my bag that I love:



It divides into two sections, one of which I will be putting in my netbook, other electronics and also valuable bits like currency etc. As nothing can fall out of that section if the bag was opened.



In case any of you are DS fans like me, here is my inflight gaming selection:



In the main section of the bag I have my little bag of liquids (mainly germ killing products!) a little bag of toiletries/medicine we might need for the journey, and my neck pillow, which rolls up really small and fits perfectly into a little elastic-y compartment of the bag.



I also have a couple of books for the trip, and the new Dan brown on order which should arrive this week:



I've not packed clothing yet, that is next weekends job, but I did buy a pair of board shorts today, to complete my water park outfit:



The little shoes set the whole ensemble off wonderfully............

All that packing sure tired us out!

Thanks Emma. Glad you don't think Im mad!

I don't mind having to take loads of suncream really, it means when I take it out I will have plenty of space to bring goodies home!!

Haha, thank you. I haven't seen her in 2 hours as I did her flea drops and now she's hiding in the cupboard sulking (she hates the smell).

I am taking my netbook, I will be buying some internet time while at AKL, but don't think I will do loads of updates. WIll mainly be checking fairfx accoutn and work e-mails etc. I'm sure I'll find some DIS time though.

Haha, my spare bed was covered in holiday stuff until I cleared it to help pack (and use it for photo purposes) today! Very nice to have it back, I think that's why Bella was so eager to help me pack! It's HER bed after all.
