Preparations for our departure for France are in their last stages. At the moment, I am at home waiting for a delivery of a car-mount for our camcorder, ordered by Keith for our trip so that we can film while driving (Don't ask!!!). Unfortunately, he forgot to specify that it be delivered to the shop, hence my enforced house-sitting.
House and dog sitting arrangements are finalised.
Packing is mostly done.
GPS is programmed.
My laptop, mobile phones, PDA, camcorder, digital camera, relevant leads, chargers and adaptors, memory cards, traveller's cheques, euros - all are ready and waiting.
Alarm set for an early start tomorrow because we need to arrive in Dover at 2.30p.m. as we sail at 3.15.
Phone call from Keith: What date do we leave?
Me: Tomorrow, of course.
K: And what is the date on our booking?
Me: The 5th. Why? What's the problem?
K: And what date is it today?
ME: (as realisation dawns slowly) Oh........the 3rd. See what you mean.
So, on to plan B:
Depart at a later hour for a leisurely wander down to Dover and overnight stay somewhere along the way!
Well done, Keith - you spotted my deliberate mistake then!! :)
