The suitcase is out on the spare bed,
The clothes are piled up beside it.
The dollars are in the red leather passport case.
The toenails are painted shocking pink.
The emergency dentist is booked for tomorrow to put back the filling that fell out this morning.... this one was not part of the run up plan!!!
The work in the surgery is completed.
The dinner with friends is booked for tomorrow night.. lets hope the local has worn off by then so I can eat without dribbling!!
The manicure is sorted for Wednesday afternoon, after all if I'm going to be brave and ask for an upgrade, I need all the help I can get.
The eldest son is due to return home in time to go to PC world, followed by a junk food fest, before my last clients.
The packing gets done at 9pm when I'm done working.
The bed gets slept in....
And then, and then.... I go to America.... YES!

The porch is swept, the cushions plumped, the gin is in the freezer, and I don't think 3.30 in the afternoon is too early to have a little glass, do you?

Be good whilst I'm gone.

I was with you the day you bought that beautiful dress and you looked fantastic in it. Enjoy making your memories. I understand exactly what you mean about making new memories. You now must go back to Portmeireion, stop in those favourite spots, and create new memories to take over from the previous ones. Enjoy the hot weather. You do NOT want to be here right now.
