Kalkan mode about to be entered BEWARE!
« on: September 02, 2016, 11:50:12 AM »
Hair appointment this afternoon. Grey hairs to be modified into Kalkan hues of gold (I wish)
Suitcases packed wel on a trial basis. We have 23kg each and 10 each hand luggage which seems a humungous amount until you look at the rail with your clothes on and realise that half hasn't gone in. Bri "why are you worried you don't wear half of it anyway" One of those looks from me that tells him he's getting really close to annoying me. Yes but just in case oh well I'll have another look and see what you don't need. He goes off to watch the cricket.
So Monday we wing our way to our favourite place. We're doing a stopover in Kekova this time so hopefully I can report on our experience.
Have loved all the lovely reports so far and really whetted my appetite for three weeks in my most favourite place.

Way to go Joycie!! Hope you and Bri have a wicked time..(not watching Warwicksire bears by any chance? i like them too as well as Blues) ;)
it's a known fact that men don't need as many clothes as ladeeez
People Of Britain.. When your missus asks "Does my bum look big in this? Never say "Dunno your blocking the light."... just sayin ????

Yes the Bears and the Blues are quite a big part of Bri's sporting life. So when I tip out half of his clothes to accomodate mine I won't feel half as guilty knowing that you understand that he doesn't need them.

Yay, Joycie's on her way - well very nearly  :)

Wise words there from BL as usual, I've managed to whittle OH's wardrobe into a capsule over the years. Just keep it colour co-ordinated and he'll be fine. Wish they made mens clothes reversible then I could whittle down even more  ;D

Really looking forward to your musings Joycie and have a safe journey. Can't wait to hear about your stopover in Kekova too. I bet it's lovely when all the boat tourists go home for the day.  :)

Well our secrets out, ladies... :-[
Seems we all remove our husbands clothes from the suitcases when they are otherwise distracted :o. Yes they definitely need less clothes than us, but theirs are so much heavier..! Always my excuse when we're unpacking on arrival and I hang up 40 dresses to BH's 4 pair of shorts.
Looking forward to reading all about your holiday, joycie...lets hope its only eventful in a good way this year ;)
Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt :)

Thank you. So I've bought another set of scales to weigh my cases. Went to the hairdressers and said I would use my wonderful bus pass to get home so that I could do my own thing for five. I have driven for years and indeed always had my own car when I was gainfully employed but since we retired we've opted for one vehicle and a bus pass. I digress. Got home and Bri tells me that my case is on the seriously worrying weight wise and his is perfect. Must take him to the opticians. Mine is way underweight and his is way way underweight. Time to redress my wardrobe and items missing which need to be gainfully employed that is sitting in my suitcase just in case.
I shall be so glad to be sitting on the plane  with all packing worries behind me. I once bought another suitcase in Sydney because my wonderful husband hadn't told me that I'd got a much bigger baggage allowance than I thought and once he'd confessed off to Paddies market in Sydney to purchase the bag.

His and Hers cases?

Don't you split everything, in case one ends up in Reykjavik or Jakarta?

So I weighed my cases again today just because I could. My case is definetly heavier than Bris and normally I do put a bit of both in each case. So I watched Pointless and Strictly Cone Dancing then the cat sat on my lap so my idea of repacking them before Casualty simply hasn't happened. A brandy and coke was put in my hand I started to watch the lottery guess what I still haven't repacked them.
Oh well first thing tomorrow I will definetly split the cases and turf out anything surplus to requirements in Brian's case. Noticed I watched Strictlly Cone Dancing so note to self don't drink brandy and write blog.

Oh I need a holiday Monday seems to be further away than ever. Kalkan makes my I pad head and hand go awry and when I put the two together it's downright hopeless. Oh well bed is beckoning so the repackingwill take place tomorrow I promise.

Thank you Jayne you and Lizzie and all the other wonderful blogs on here have whetted my appetite.
I spent a restless night thinking that I really should try and repack the cases. I've been round the world for heavens sake and I've never had so much trouble as I've had this time trying to pack for three weeks in Kalkan. So with great trepidation I approached mine first. I lifted the lid with great caution almost as if there was something horrible lurking in its midst.Guess what nothing jumped out just an ordinary suitcase full of clean clothes some washing capsules and some dish washer tablets etc. The penthouse apartment that we go to is fabulous and really well equipped and this year were moving on to Sues Villa for the last week. She says the transfer will be seem less but obviously hasn't seen the twist that I've got my knickers in at the mo.
Over to the other suitcase and that's got the water hammock in it. No nothing untoward there either . Closed it breathed a sigh of relief and went for a shower. So why have I found another skirt nail varnish lady shaver etc. sitting nicely on top of the case to be included. Please let it be Monday so I can't find anything else that needs to be included.

Just had message from our best friend Daisy whose coming to join us on Tuesday with my partner in crime. He has been reading my blog and his advice is just throw it all in it will be fine. Right advice taken!

It's a long story BL but even worse he calls my husband Dad and there's only a months difference in their ages. You can imagine the looks when we're all out together.
