    Is there anything better? Emptied the RV today and then re-packed from a carefully prepared list. No matter how many times you've done it, the excitement of packing for a trip away always gets me going. :)

    So true... And it doesn't even matter how long the trip is for. I'm already getting excited about a couple of weekends away I've got planned for next month :)

    Opposite for me! I HATE packing the van ... I have a list to work from but it drives me nuts! Last time we went away I let hubby do the 'food' packing ... not doing that again though as, amongst other things, he only took 2 tins of tuna and I LOVE tuna mixed with grated cheese and mayonnaise (or plain yoghurt) and spread on crackers ... yummie!

    He also put some frozen pizza and meatballs in the freezer ... we were going to ITALY!!!! :doh:

    Were supposed to be going for a bimble around Wales starting today, but my beautiful cat has not come home since Sunday. I think she must be locked in a shed as she always comes home, was lovely Sunday, everyone gardening etc. Posted notes through doors walked around calling her. Nothing. So hard when there's nothing you can do

    I'm in the opposite position. I need to empty everything out for a Hab service next week, this is a job I hate. I have however promised myself that not everything will go back in the van - if not used in last 12 months it will get relegated to the shed. Mind you I say this every year!!!

    I love packing for a trip, I even enjoy tidying the van and cleaning it inside ready for the next trip. It doesn't feel like housework which I hate, it seems part of the adventure. That's what I will be doing today after the brilliant Pembrey trip. Then I will be packing for a girly trip to Lisbon with our daughter. Nick will have nearly a week of peace to watch sport, play golf, eat and drink what he likes without me nagging!
    Have fun Jim and Sian.

    I love packing. It's the unpacking on Sun I'm not looking forward to. And then the cleaning of the MH.
    Enjoy your trip Jim and San wherever you end up.

    Horrible when a loved pet goes missing. Hope you find her.

    Thanks for that. No luck so far. Trouble is I think too much of all the possible horrible scenarios.
