Sitting in the hotel after a very hectic week. House sale completed and everything moved out, bags packed (and more bags bought), parties done with many, many whiskeys drunk on Wednesday, lunch today with family before we go to the airport.

Last day in the UK

Have finally persuaded OH to come out today to buy new underpants. I'm too ashamed to hang his rotting ones out on the line- some of them are 5 years old and have more holes than fabric in them!!
