Alternative title: Going away for a year and a day, wrapped up in a pea green coat. (If you get the reference, cookie for you!)
I’m going away tomorrow so I’m hurriedly putting off packing my bags. I usually use this suitcase as hand luggage, it’s the perfect size and it’s solid so, in my usual klutziness, nothing gets damaged. Whenever I travel I imagine myself as a character from a 60’s black and white film, preferably French. I like to listen to Vashti Bunyan (60’s) and I’m travelling to France; that might explain it a little. Plus I’ve always thought of travel as so perfectly romantic, even though I’ve been travelling since before I could walk. This afternoon I sat on the roof of my apartment and said goodbye to the city for a couple of weeks. Expect nothing but field photos from now on!
Also, a side note, little girl tights are the comfiest ever. Not to mention they fit better than many tights I’ve tried.
