|My Farfar (Grandpa)|
I have a long to do list for tomorrow: I have to pack, call the big boss to sort out my shifts whilst I am gone, go in to work and make sure everything is sorted, fill in a few forms, charge my Norwegian mobile, create an airplane playlist, print all my tickets and also try and relax. A long flight is very straining on the body so it's important to relax and be well-hydrated before the flight. If you couldn't tell by now I prefer to focus on the practical things because it's easier... I also have to pick out a nice and comfortable airplane outfit. The weather forecast in my hometown shows minus degrees so it will be nice and cold. Luckily I have lots of warm clothes at home so I won't have to pack too much.
I realise that things like these are never timed well but it is what it is. My birthday is next Saturday and I have obviously cancelled the drinks, our Christmas staff party is on Friday which I also can't go to of course. Lucky I am a late planner so I hadn't got my costume yet. I just want to go and be with my family.
One of my lovely friends told me that I now have another angel looking over my shoulder which I take great comfort in. It is so true but it doesn't make it any easier.
