Packing for a Weekend in the Lake District

P1000633

For boyfriend’s birthday we going away for a weekend to the Lake District.  So here is my packing!  The weather has turned pretty cold so I’ll need warm clothes, and we might do some little walks so comfortable clothes and shoes.  Above are my clothes and bags.  I’m using my trusty Blacks rucksack to carry everything, but also taking my little pink back pack for my day bag.

I’ve also got my grey jeans and leopard print jumper (which boyfriend hates!), and two long sleeved tops.  Not pictured is some other new trousers I’ve got which are like sweat pants you can wear outside (I wear sweat pants outside anyway…) and my new snuggly green hoody which was in the wash.  There’s also my coat, hat, and gloves in the shot, my socks and underwear, and a t-shirt and shorts I can sleep in.

In regards to non-clothes stuff,  I am taking about 3 books very optimistically.  I always think I’ll read a lot on holiday but then don’t.  I’ve also got two of my analogue cameras, the La Sardina and Diana Mini.  I’ve got my toiletries, brush, and mini hair straighteners.  There’s also a tree guide from our new Woodland Trust membership, so we can look at trees…

I also need my phone and charger, my pillow, some trainers, and possibly (now I think about it) a nicer outfit in case we go out for dinner.

What do you think?  Any packing suggestions?

Packing For Glasgow

Packing For Glasgow

I took a very quick trip to Glasgow recently to visit my new baby nephew (and some adults).  I arrived lunchtime on Friday and left about 4pm on Saturday, and was traveling by train.  I didn’t need to take too much with me, although I did have a few presents that I needed to cram into my backpack.

It was very hot when I went up there, but this heat wave has been so unprecedented it was hard to believe that it would stay warm, in Scotland of all places. I went up there in my jeans and long sleeve dino top, the air conditioning on the train made that an OK travel outfit.  But on arrival we sat in the garden and it was very necessary to shorts up.  I threw in some new shorts (not pictured), as well as shorts to sleep in (which it was far too hot to wear)! I also took some fluffy slipper socks which my niece quite enjoyed stroking and grabbing hold of.

My non-clothes items were fairly minimal; some toiletries, sunglasses, sun block, a book to read on the train, a day bag (which sister had bought me and my niece pointed to and said ‘we bought that’), my purse, and then I also took my phone and camera.  It was fairly successful packing I’d say!
