Up, Up and Away.

*This is not an advertisement for burglers and other Bermondsey types.  

I spent today pretending to pack.

As a typical bloke, I just watched a bit of TV and then chucked a few clean polo shirts, two pairs of shorts, 3 pairs of swim shorts and a pair of Brazilian Havaianas into my suitcase and then poured the contents of my washbag over the top.

Two beach towels rammed in to keep it all from moving about too much and job done.

I can never understand how some people manage to spend so long on packing.

I did spend quite a bit of time filling my iPod touch with films and podcasts to entertain me on our (Easyjet) flights so I suppose it's all about priorities.

Easyjet permitting, I'm back with a few hours to spare before our season opener against Bournemouth.

I hope I'll be returning to news of a freshly signed, or loaned, 20 goal a season striker.

I'll be the relaxed looking bloke in the East stand, smelling of Aftersun.

Over and Out.

Have a great time Marco.
I wish I could pack quickly. It takes me days.
Where are you going?

Thanks An!
I grew up in a household where my mum would start laying out clothes on the bed in the spare room, anything up to 2 weeks before departure.
I guess my current methods are a reaction against that system.
We are off to Greece, (Crete).

I must be the luckiest man alive...I've never packed a single thing for any holiday I've taken with the missus in 14 years of being together!!! I did 'smuggle' a replica Addicks shirt for my young lad to wear a few years back as my Wife refused to pack it!
