What seemed to be so long in coming is just three sleeps away. Now I feel the urgency creeping into my thoughts. I will feel relaxed when I am at the airport ready to fly. I have been mostly packed for a couple of weeks which is unusual for me and has contributed to my feelings of restlessness. The final pack will be Sunday. This time I am not carrying my backpack but having my luggage shifted so I have a few more clothing options. What agony! It is so much easier to pack when you know that you are limited to what you can carry on your back. I have still tried to be lean and light.
The last few days have been somewhat concerning as my companion Anne has a daughter in hospital suddenly and one of my sons has come out in shingles. As mothers we feel uncomfortable leaving the country knowing our children are unwell, even though they are both adults. Once a mother always a mother!
