    Like the paisley print on whatever that is in the foreground.

  5. Good to see that The Prof is taking plenty of coathangers as they are as rare as hens' teeth in Australia.

  7. My smallest charge packs in the identical fashion, and her bag is at the door the night before departure. My youngest granddaughter is the exact replica. We swear they channel my mother, whose name each bears: Laura Caroline and Caroline Lenore.

  8. I hope he's packing plenty of warm clothes, it's still very chilly in Melbourne.

  9. I usually check the items I want to bring about a week before to make sure all is clean and ready and wash or make ready the item if it isn't. If i'm travelling to a new place, I usually pack a full day before, although I usually have to add something last minute. If it's a place I've been to before, I usually do it a couple hours before i'm leaving the house.

    When I do the actual packing, I find it works best for me if I imagine i'm naked and ask myself what I need to put on. Himself laughed at me when I told him that's how I do it. Then we went on a trip where he insisted he could pack his own bag and forgot trousers.

  10. Tell him while he is here, he should pick up some Australian Afternoon tea bags, they'll be 100 times better than those Tetley things.

    Our former Prime Minister was not especially good at being a prime minister due to his ego and lack of delegating skills, but he invented Australian Afternoon Tea, and it is an amazing tea.

    He might want to post himself back a couple of boxes. :)

    1. That is my favourite tea also.

  11. I'm being a Judgy McJudge about the shoes too because those effers are heavy to pack. Why not just get by with a pair of dress shoes and the pair of sneakers for casual?

    ReplyDelete
  12. While at first shuddering at the thought of those shoes on the bed, I then had to admire his taste in footwear. At least the Converse sneakers/trainers.

  13. Organized people frighten me. My father was meticulously organized and I'm still trying to recover from the fact.

  14. Where is the coat? It is winter and freezing in aus now

  15. I have to say I took a very large pack of my favourite tea bags to Hawaii. Very thankful for them as I can only get them here in Australia. If the Prof is going to Melbourne he would need a coat . Beautiful weather here in Queensland though! Warm mild days here .

    ReplyDelete
  16. And why aren't the shoes properly bagged, hmmm?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Remind him of the golden rule 'Half the amount of clothes you think you'll need, and twice the amount of money'.

  18. It looks like this here too, except I use the bookcase. I leave in two days (and my coat hangers stay in the wardrobe).

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love his organisation. Totally absent here. My partner packs the morning he leaves - and carries less than that for a couple of months away.

    ReplyDelete
  20. We are just the same, it takes J days to pack and everything is meticulously packed, I open the suitcase, count out enough for the number of days I will be gone and drop it in.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Impressive indeed. But shoes on the bed....no no no no no.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Opposites attract and all that. I'm a bit like you. I pack an hour before I leave the house! I do admire his neatness and preparation though.

    ReplyDelete
  23. MMMmmmmmm very good.....just as it should be done. Can I see it IN the case now?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ok, let's cut to the chase... Sunscreen, chafe cream (salt water causes itches) panadol, a really warm jersey and windproof clothing - top and trousers (it's really, really cold out on the water there in winter) sunglasses (stops wind in the eyes) wooly hat, 2 of - pairs of shoes, trousers, jerseys. 4 Tee-shirts, undies, socks, That'll do it.

  25. Oh dear - how much will all this weigh - surely he's not going to take all those coat hangers too? They do have them in hotels in Oz. Unless he's going to wear it to travel in, he will need a warm coat, as it's still winter down there. When we go in that direction, we always "reverse" the months. Taking June as mid-winter, if it's August here, the weather is equivalent to our February, give or take a degree or two, the further south of the equator we go.
    We always split everything between our two cases - and pack it in two large plastic bags - half each of "his and hers". Saves the embarrassment of having nothing to wear if one case gets lost, and clothes seem a lot less creased too.

  26. Was Winnie able to resist jumping on all that and making a dreadful mess in a frenzy of passion? He took a risk, surely?

  27. I put my passport in my pocket and that's it.

  28. We do have Tetley tea bags here you know..... or he could sample some Australian Afternoon Tea, it's very nice !!

    ReplyDelete
  29. He needs some lessons from Rachel !

  30. This is too cute.It reminds me of the episode of Black Books when they go to St Honore to get away from the construction noise, and the boys have to stage an intervention with Fran as she has packed 30 pairs of shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Chalk and cheese!

    ReplyDelete
  32. What a neat person Chris is. I can relate to that!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Tea bags? You'd have to explain that to me...

    ReplyDelete
  34. 10pm: as I type this it's a balmy 8* and expecting sunny days ahead until Sunday. 18* tomorrow. We also have Twinnings as well. My suggestion , halve it and don't forget SPF 15, stubbies, navy blue singlet and thongs ( flip flops) sartorial elegance supreme. Give the boys in blue ( lifeguards) at Bondi a break and don't go in the surf. We are expecting a big swell at the weekend. Enjoy.

  35. I used to pack just like this, then turned 55 and thought "who cares if my shoes go well with my outfit? No one has looked at my feet in 30 years!" It was a major turning point in my life.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Is the sweat vest in one of these little stacks? Travel in a jacket, add socks, underwear and he is good to go. All that other essential stuff he can purchase in OZ. Does seem quite a few shoes.

    Loved the comment 'all brains and bugger all common sense'

    ReplyDelete
  37. He is so organized! Why can't I be that organized? ...

    ReplyDelete
  38. I seem to recall he's going on a sailing holiday - it's still winter there so perhaps he will require something a bit heavier like a hefty sweater. . . . . . plus a little flask of something warming to add to all those cups of tea!
    Have a safe trip Chris - and a barrel of fun down under!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I can relate to the prof. I do like organization and hate to go someplace and realize that I had forgotten something.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Very tidy...bordering on OCD.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Where's the rashy? Tell him customs will confiscate the tea bags and he has bought the wrong adapter for OZ.......

    ReplyDelete
  42. Two belts and four pairs of shoes?

    ReplyDelete
  43. He's soooooo organised, I love it.

    We're going away for the weekend tomorrow, I'll pack just before we get in the car ... it's the only way I can remember what's in my bag!!
