Thirteen things happening tomorrow


  1. Tomorrow morning I wont be here.

  2. I'll be in the car or maybe on the ferry or back in the car (but on the wrong side of the road) or navigating the hell that is the Périphérique. Actually I'll be fine, Simon will be having kittens.

  3. I'll be going "home" for Christmas!

  4. I'm off to France because that's where the family is, so that's where "home" is!

  5. The car is going to be full of all kinds of strange essentials ... a turkey, stuffing, parsnips and salad cream to name but a few!

  6. You can't get any of these things in France ... well I'm sure you could get the turkey if you looked hard enough but this is an M&S turkey and her with the husky voice says it's better than anywhere elses!!

  7. I have all the Christmas presents that I am going to get a chance to buy.

  8. They are mostly wrapped.

  9. So if I need anything else ~ hard luck!

  10. AAAGGGH!! French Dial-up Internet!

  11. I am not looking forward to not being able to blog properly. It might It'll make me a tad tetchy. I might will have to go out and find an Internet Cafe somewhere ;o)

  12. I have all the cold weather clothes I could pack ... it was freezing last year. I also have some sun-screen ... I got burnt the year before :o)

  13. I'm hoping there'll be a hot cup of tea waiting when I get there and not a boxed Christmas tree to put up like last year!

I had no idea you couldn't just get the turkey, stuffing, etc. no matter where you were. Guess I am so use to have a major grocery store on every corner.

Have a great time in France with family.
