Ten o clock in the morning and the suitcases have been packed, unpacked and repacked. The taxi isn’t due until half one. I am always ready far too early.
Thinking about what I’ve forgotten to pack. Are four pairs of shorts enough? Paul sighs and reminds me that there are shops in Australia. Did I pack the bread sauce? Yes, my daughter has requested packets of Colmans Bread Sauce mix.
Fidgeting, watching daytime television. There’s a consumer programme presented by Julia Somerville, Angela Rippon and Gloria Hunniford. Paul wonders what their combined age is. I’m wondering how much hair spray they’ve used on their bouffant hair do’s.
Can’t settle. I’m just going to go and clean the bathroom. Yup, I’m nervous about the flight.
