Happy Birthday and Holiday

24/07/14 – 365 Challenge #205

I felt much better when I woke up this morning, with the exception of being unusually drowsy. Mum and I headed into town to run a few errands before we go on holiday – the Post Office, buying an updated map of France, spending my HMV voucher, grabbing some lunch and a Costa, putting the car through the car wash, and checking the tyre pressure. What a fun way to spend my Mums birthday!

The afternoon was spent packing and sorting out everything we’re going to need for our trip. We’ve never done anything quite like this trip, so it ought to be interesting. The one question I find myself asking above all others is “which books should I take?” It should, in theory, be simple, but with my choppy-changey attitude (towards books!), it is like Sophie’s choice…

Mum and I dropped Molly off with some friends for her “holiday” – much better than kennels Mol! I hate saying goodbye to her, partly because she’s only seven months old, and partly because I know how much of a handful she can be, and I don’t like other people underestimating that fact. So mumsy of me.

We headed out for a Chinese to celebrate Mum’s birthday, and the start of our holiday, but our usual Chinese had just been shut for refurbishment, so Dad suggested we try the Thai across the road, where he and Mum had had a nice meal a couple of months ago.

The last time I had a Thai it was in New York City, and I was slightly disappointed, but I wasn’t this time! I had duck pancakes and then a beef noodle dish, which was delicious. I shall certainly have it again.

When we got home, we packed the car with the majority of our suitcases, ready to leave tomorrow, and I set about charging and packing my electronics. It’s surprising how many I actually have. I must just remember to unplug them all tomorrow.
