so i’m officially in packing mode over here – four people to pack for is quite something and i’m sure we’ll still end up forgetting something! i’m trying to pack light (kinda impossible when you read the below) i’ve limited how many items of clothing we take and have packed some washing powder to do some hand washing if we need to.

the main things on my list right now are:

  • Ipad, ipad charger & ipad holder
  • Ergo 360 sling
  • Picnic blanket
  • Sun hats/ sun cream
  • Swim nappies, trunks, swimsuit & armbands
  • Sleepyhead
  • Blackout blinds
  • Gro egg
  • Football, Rue’s bike, kite, mini golf set
  • Sun tent
  • Travel potty
  • National Trust staff card & handbook
  • Camera and tripod
  • Silvercross buggy, car seat and carry cot
  • Chicco cot
  • Box of dried food items (as we’re self catering)

and so on ……

We have a people carrier but still i’m struggling to see how it’s all going to fit, we did a trial run at the weekend and got all the big stuff in plus one bag of clothes (WM & I are sharing a bag). but this was before we decided to take Rues bike, WM keeps saying we need a roof box and i keep telling him it aint gonna happen 😉 i’m hoping that from next year it’ll get easier and we won’t need to take so much stuff, hoping 🙂

Anything that i have missed?
