i'm almost ready to go! i decided to do a trial pack tonight and it turned into just a straight-out pack. I've got a change of clothes in my carry-on and everything else pretty much packed into my check luggage. only a few things left to add to that - i've not quite kitted out my toiletries bag and i'm taking laundry detergent with me - but otherwise i'm pretty much good to go. the clothes i'm wearing the rest of this week i'll wash later on this week so they'll be ready to go when i get home. no pressure to get my washing done as soon as i land.
right now i'm pretty tired. good night.
