I have never been so excited to pack before! Since starting the 'Sock It To Me' campaign in November last year I have been so overwhelmed by the generosity of people. Not only friends but complete strangers. It completely restores your faith in the goodness of people and you discover that people want to help and sometimes it's only a matter of showing them how.
Putting all that aside for a moment though . . . As I gathered all of the boxes together which have been accumulating in the cupboards for months a slight feeling of dread came over me. How am I going to fit all of this, as well as my toothbrush, head torch, Cadbury Top Deck and malaria tablets, into a suitcase? And make it weigh only 30 kgs??!!
Surely the boxes have been breeding at night like Gremlins?
