The bags are packed...lots of them...British Airways is going to have a field day charging me for the excess baggage. It always did annoy me that airlines presume that everyone who travels needs to pack just enough for a two week vacation.
What about the expats? We need extra baggage allowance for all the chedder cheese and bacon that we need to take home with us. And I think extra special baggage allowance should be given for expats who have passed Christmas and their childs birthday back in the Motherland, because apart from the cheese and bacon there are new toys to consider. All those presents that are 'very special and important and have to come to Italy too mummy', no matter how bulky or heavy they are.
I have three mammoth bags packed. But we've had to leave behind the train set, my box of photos, the play-doh, 2 pairs of boots and all sorts of things that we don't really need but would like to take.
Whether the bags will actually fit in the car is something we will find out at Naples Airport. Just the thought of having to haul them up the 160 steps to our apartment makes me weak at the knees.....
Yes, I am going home to Italy. I should be back in time for lunch tomorrow.
Who wants to meet me there for cupcakes?
