Packing paralysis!

We are off to a conference in the morning and I should be packing!! Do you ever get that last-minute paralysis about what to put inside the suitcase/bag? It regularly happens here especially with extended time of more than one night. Why is that I wonder? I guess I am the sort of person who likes to have options - trousers or a skirt, cool clothes and warm clothes, at least two pairs of shoes, jewellery. Then there is the list of things to do - knitting, quilting, embroidery, crochet, I love to do a variety of projects when I am away. Oh yes, and what about the books? Won't I have all this time possibly for reading? Now I need a selection of books - a novel, something a little more serious, something professional (no, may give this a miss this time!), something crafty, something inspiring? What about the magazines that I have piled by my bed, could they come too?

As it happens I shall have to take the laptop with me as I need to continue to do some work while I am away and hey, I probably ought to go to some seminars too as that is what the conference is about (although strictly speaking I am there with hubby who has some part in the exhibition)!!! I think it is going to be a late night while I sort all this out and here I am blogging away!! Look out for a post next week about my visit to Buckingham Palace. Hope you all have a great weekend and that the sun shines where you are.

tee hee, I thought it was just me who procrastinated about packing - I always end up just taking everything, and feel silly that I have so much, and miss the one thing I left behind.....
