10, 9, 8, 7...

I'm counting down the last days till I set off for America again. I'll be leaving home at about 05:20 next Wed, GMT, and arriving in Albuqerque at 19:45 (Central time, I think). After that is the trip up to Farmington, possibly with a meal first. So I may not get to Ron's house until midnight, techinically also next Wed. However, I'll have been travelling for over 24 hours by then. I'm sooo looking forward to that leg of the journey.

In the meantime, I've got to get ready for the trip.The plane tickets are e-tickets, which is a little unnerving, as I'd like to have them in my hand. Still I know what proof I need to show at the airport. I have copies of iteneries, insurance documents, passport details, address of friends I'm staying with etc, etc. I have to organize one set of copies in the UK with responsible friend and one set in the luggage, as well as various originals (better remember to pack the actual passport.; I forgot it once). Emergency humbers to call for credit card and insurance.
  Visit post office tomorrow to collect a fistful of dollars.
  Need to make final arrangements for cat-sitting and keep trying to contact PDSA re temporary carer. Arrange for responsible friend to come in now and again to collect up post and water tubs if necessary.
  Have to decide which clothes I want to take and that they're clean. Have to sort clear, resealable bag for toiletries in hand luggage. Decide what I want to take on the plane in hand luggage - neck pillow, earplugs, book, toiletries, explosives etc.
   Need to keep up to date with washing up, so I don't end up with a pile at the last moment, ditto laundry and bins.
   Have managed to remew all library books, tohugh they're due again the day after I get back.
  Really want to see doc about whether I need more anti-nausea meds, and remember prescriptions and packaging for anything I want to take with me.

*takes deep breath*

Anything else I've forgotten ?

We have a box of clear, resealable sandwich bags of the right size that we bought before going to Spain if you want one. They were also giving them out free to people at Manchester Airport at checkin, but it's probably not worth risking it!

If you have a bag of the right size, that would be most useful. Acquiring said bag from you is likely to be the biggest problem though.

If you want to come over one afternoon or evening (you could even get Ed to drive !), it would be lovely to see you. I'm supposed to be resting as much as possible at the moment, so I don't want to head over Hillsborough way, otherwise you'd have seen me coming to eat cake and jelly. Post or call if there's a time that suits you.

E-tickets are fine. I've used them a couple of times and there just isn't a problem. :-)

If you need a plastic bag they give you one at the airport which is handy as then its the right specifications.

Have a fantastic time!
