    So we went down to Adrian's parents at the weekend to issue the final instructions to Grandma.

    It didn't start well - she had it in her head that we were flying from Heathrow. We have approved the suitcase as size appropriate. Luggage labels have been issued pre-written. All documentation has been checked. We had a minor glitch with my mother when we noticed her name was spelt incorrectly on her ticket and it was a bit till Val sorted it. This is mind we went over every letter with Grandma on all her travel documents.

    Well that was the easy bit. Suffice to say she's going to be hard work. She's insisting on taking a coat and says she not doing laundry on holiday. Adrian told her she's carrying her own luggage then. Apart from this she's like a clucky mother hen, always fussing over everyone and everything. God knows what's going to happen when she realises there's no lifeguard for the villa pool. Adrian's phrase of the moment is "shut up mother"

    Two weeks tomorrow

    That's been my phrase since I was about 21

    Glad you got the name bit sorted. When I first read that I was a bit for you because I know what the airlines can be.

    Not long now!

    Well we've tried to explain but apparently she always takes a coat on holiday. She is also taking perfume for getting dressed up in the evening after the parks. Um..that's when we get out the swimwear. :D

    Well it was actually only one letter but still a slightly nervous 24 hours till it was sorted.

    You did tell her that she'll be fodder for the mosquitos and stinging gnats if she goes outside with perfume on, right?
