Another item ticked off the list, this time, it was the parcels. I’ve hummed and hawed about this one, whether to post supplies to the campsites I’ll be staying at and decided I would. I’ve posted maps and Fuzion Freeze Dried dinners mostly, but I’m hoping to restock breakfast, lunch and snack items from the local shops as I pass through. I even remembered to pack an envelope in each box, postage paid, to post home the maps I’ve finished with.
I’ve also prepared a box for David to bring to Braemar, where he’s bringing the children for the weekend when I have a day off. It’s a few days before my birthday, so maybe they’ll bring a cake and candles. Or maybe not candles, not good in a tent.
I’m planning to send a box to the hotel in Montrose as well with a few of those items I’ll have really missed, like Chanel No5, maybe a bit of slap and my slippers. I might appreciate my fluffy slippers by then. Popping them into my rucksack to take onto the train won’t be an issue, I will have returned the borrowed sleeping bag to the, so I’ll have space.
Now I shall lie awake at night, paranoid I’ve packed the wrong items in the boxes…
