I always call it Somerset, and the wife always corrects me and tells me it’s Dorset, well to me they’re the same thing. Aren’t they? 🤦🏻‍♀️

Anyway, today we’re off to “Dorset” to visit the inlaws for a couple of days. Inlaws, it’s so weird to think they’re actually my inlaws now for real. Izzy and Poppy are my sister inlaws, oh I love that. This morning has been manic, I’m terrible at packing, Tazmyn writes lists on her phone 3 weeks prior and has her case packed at least 10 days before we are due to go anywhere! Me on the other hand, leaves it all until the morning we’re going! Brownie points for the effort though, because I did set my alarm for 7am this morning and by 8am I was showered and my make up was done, even if half of my clothes were still in the tumble dryer! Cool, calm and collected Tazmyn is casually styling her hair in the bedroom and I’m packing the last minute things to the case. Charger! My phone charger is always the last thing to be packed, but thank god I didn’t forget it.

Its now 8:36am, technically we don’t need to leave the house until 9:30, our train is just before 10, oh did I forget to say we have to get 3 trains? It’s okay though, my travel sickness doesn’t really come into affect on trains for some bizarre reason, only on busses, planes and cars. Tazmyns packed us cans of fizzy drink for the journey, just one of the reasons why I married her! And we both have portable hand held rechargeable electric fans that we carry everywhere with us, for those moments we’re stressed and sweaty, which is more often than not! I really need to blog about those fans, they’re a bloody lifesaver! We’re currently sat at the dining room table, drinking tea with chocolate and ginger biscuits that my mum just brought back from her weekend in Whitby, I’m in between typing this post and checking out the window to see if it’s started to rain yet – please don’t rain, I’ve straightened my hair!!

Looking forward to a couple of days in Dorset though, I’ll blog again tomorrow morning.

Wish this drama queen luck on this 3 train journey! And pray it doesn’t rain!

With love, always
