Frozen Out!

Hey peeps, I'm back. For the full low-down on my disastrous holiday check out my other blog.

Lessons I have learnt from this holiday:-

  • Make a list of all things you need to take on holiday so you do not forget things (like a heater).
  • Listen to your instincts (like take the heater).
  • Take "just in case" things (like hat,scarf,gloves,heater).
  • Do NOT leave it until the morning you are going on holiday to pack!
  • Do not try to organise everything and pack with nobody at home to occupy your baby!
  • Mums (aka Nana) are an absolute blessing (she came over to keep Kadyn company while I packed).
  • Driving to a destination 5 hours away is not a good idea on your own (trying to map read, put dummy back in etc.. is not easy whilst driving)
  • A roads do not have services or lay bys to stop on!
  • Once the cold is in your bones it's there to stay for a looooooooooong time!
  • When you go away for 2 days you get 85 new posts to read in ya google reader - imagine what it would be like if you were away a whole week! lol

you are funny! I have a packing list for every vacation we go on...one for me and one for each of the kids....that way I don't forget things. I also over pack....though I will have to add heater to the list now! ;)

I'm glad you are back! I'm like Pam and make lists for me, my hubby and each kid and then a general list. I totally overpack, but usually have everything we need. Never thought of a heater though ;) Welcome Home! :)

I so agree. Moms (esp Nanas!) are such a blessing to us. They help us with parenting and all.

I always make a packing list when we go away. One for each person- and then I bring way too much.

I can't imagine driving 5 hours alone with a baby though- I don't think I could do it. A 1/2 hour stresses me out.
