Have I had my token packing post yet? No? Good!|
ARRRRRRGH 4 Spa nights! ARRRRRRRRRRRGH Fartoomanyclothes(*)!!!!!!!!
More seriously, not helped by the fact I've barely gothed up in over 6 months, and have therefore lost all sartorial imagination.
(*) in a suitcase sense, not an absolute one, of course...
Okay. Put all your clothes in a heap and pick out 4 complete outfits for the evenings.
Then put 2 pairs of trousers and 4 tops aside for the daytimes. (You need 2 pairs of trousers in case someone spills cider on one.)
Then take out all the underwear and pack that. You can never take enough underwear.
Then put everything else back where it was before.
Then put one of every pair of boots you have in a heap. Pick which boots will go best with each evening outfit. Pack those (well, the pairs). Put in a pair of comfortable boots if these are not included in the rest.
Put all the other boots back where they were.
Now sit down, and think about practicalities - can you really wear X item for 5 hours? Will those shoes cope with wobbly stone steps or do you need flip-flops to get to the Pavilion in the evenings?
Now put every bit of makeup you own in the suitcase.
Now sit down and stop worrying.
