Our lovely holiday planning goes ahead.
I'm sorting out some clothes I'll wear. Not many of each item. I don't need to have lots of them. Two pairs of shoes - boots and trainers. My holiday clothes are ready.
I'm getting the house tidied up. I sometimes have a pile of things to 'get around to'. Right now I've got a patchwork quilt to complete, some fabric I've washed ready to make another dress and some books ready to take to the charity shop.
I've washed indoor the window frames.
I've sorted out my indoor plants and tidied our little garden.
I've got some travel shampoo, conditioner and bar soap that I've had for a little while.
These are ready, as is my gorgeous nail varnish.
I've told folks we are not available the week of our holiday.
We've chosen books we'd like to read that week.
We've researched a couple of dog-friendly pubs to visit for a couple of lunches.
And our food for the rest of the week is in our cupboards.
We are having a really cheap holiday - it's a 'stay-cation'!!
A break from regular routine, a visit to a couple of pubs for lunch, walks with the dogs, books to read, the house tidied up.
It's a good feeling as it's affordable.
I bought a couple of scented candles to have lit in the week.
