Surely you can now pack the summery stuff you aren't going to wear in the meantime.

She says everything will be crushed

But won't it be crushed anyway after being packed?

I am pathetic and never pack till the very last minute and get in Big Panic and Thoroughly Bad Mood. Last year we were going on a cruise (big packing) and was packing from 12 till 2 a.m. (after big work function that I had to organise). Our train left at 8.30 a.m. I survived by just drinking Red Bull and espresso at the party. Us nearly missing the ship is another - very long - story. We fly to Gatwick p.m. on Wed 28th to go on holiday for New Year the next day. You can guarantee I will be packing that afternoon - shouting and screaming and having hissy fits with the family either hiding or laughing. The joys of holidays! Also want to manage to get a tan by then (hollow laugh) had planned a few sun beds but hasn't happened yet. Plus a bikini wax! Ouch! Manicure and pedicure can def. wait till we get there.
