So I have packed. I did it early to see if my things would fit into the bag that I have set aside for the trip. So no nasty surprises. I feel relieved. So today I am doing last minute ironing and will probably repack it today still. I have also packed my art bag which is a small bag that I will take on-board with me. I still want to Ziploc all my paints, as suggested. I still have one or two little art supplies left to get, like my Hot Pressed Paper. And I also have to get my foreign exchange this week. I have worked out what I will need cash wise. So all in all - I think I am pretty much done and ready. I say that with much trepidation - because are we ever ready for something this big and exciting. But I guess I am ready as I will ever be or feel!!! 5 more sleeps before I head out!
