Packing our bags...

Some changes I have noticed.

I used to pack a bag and jump on a plane to somewhere/anywhere, at a moments notice.

Kakakak. Finito.

I used to be able to take a small back pack as carry on baggage for a weekend sojourn to Timbuktu.

Now I have to start packing 48 hours in advance for 2 tiny teeny little people that seem to require more changes of clothing than Paris Hilton.

I used to be able to arrive at the airport with the minimum 30 minute check in time for a domestic flight and still grab a coffee or a beer on the way to the gate.

Now I have to arrive at least two hours early as logistics require a major juggling act and a visit to special baggage services to ensure our double pram & portacot are waiting for us at the other end.

I used to be able to catch public transport at the other end.

Now we have to hire a Toyota Tarago.

  1. I SO know this feeling! We 'debrief' before we go anywhere! We took our twinnies overseas to Ireland when they were six months old with a stop over in Hong Kong. Looking back, I'm not exactly sure how we managed it!
