Having shipped the mayhem creators off to Grandma's so we can really get down to packing, we totally blew it by going out last night, drinking a lot of wine and beer, getting back home at 3am and then not getting up until 11. It has to be said that being hungover is a lot easier when you don't have children around, but extremely bad for packing productivity. Worth every pounding of the head though, as it has been a long time since D and I went out together to a pub with mates and we really had such fun.
Not having the little angels around on a Sunday morning also allowed me to indulge in my favourite radio activities. Actually listening to The Archers Omnibus, followed by Desert Island Discs and then I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue on Radio 4 is one of life's great pleasures. It certainly helped the hungover packing to be a little less excrutiating.
Knowing that I become more English as soon as I leave these shores, I am comforted by the thought that through the wonders of technology, I'll still be able to keep up with the events in Ambridge listening online.
