Well it's 4 hours till we leave but for some reason my countdown timer says I'm in the pool so I'll start writing. So far this has happened: Our car hire voucher didn't arrive. I told Val who got straight on to it. If anyone saw her Facebook status about her shouting so loud that she scared her children, that was her shouting at the supplier to get it sorted. It got sorted and I have checked in with Alamo already so I just need to stroll to the garage and pick a car. A nice shiny one. The house is cleaner than it's ever been. Even cleaner than 5pm on Christmas Eve. The dogs, guinea pigs and the hamsterthatlives have gone off to their holiday homes. It's very quiet here except for the occasional giggle from Steven who is watching Minecraft videos. I've checked in online. And our pre-requested seating has been changed. Don't tell Grandma but they've stuck her on her own 3 rows away on the other side of the plane. We'll be at the airport early tomorrow though so hopefully we can get that sorted out. Talking of Grandma I have no idea where she is right now. Somewhere between here and Devon but where along that line is anyone's guess. This is the best bit. Adrian wanted to know what scissors were in the side pocket of the case so that he could practise cutting a cable tie to make sure they were sharp enough.
