and checking it twice.
I have a young friend who is about to set off for 10 months travelling through India, Malaysia and China. He is packing 4 pairs of pants and 4 pairs of socks.
I am going to Italy for 8 days. If there should be an underwear emergency while I am there I will have enough knickers to supply the adult female population of Rome.With some to spare.
I like to be prepared.
So I have t-shirts in case it's hot or to wear layered below several jumpers if, as is more likely, it's cold. I have said jumpers plus cardis in case, plus a couple of respectable tops to wear to restaurants. I have a mac, woolly hat, gloves, scarf (2 - one woolly and 1 smart). I also have a red Wales hoodie and, of course, my daffodil hat.
And still I rummage through my wardrobe, finding tops I haven't worn for years and thinking, 'I wonder if I should take that, just in case.' Just in case of what is anybody's guess.
