I thought that I had managed to work out how to post using my phone, rather than ending up with a comment. Third time lucky! Hopefully Birdgirl will do better.
The question at 1am was whether to unpack the half-empty 3 suitcases and cram into 2, chuck in more stuff or enjoy a trip when I don't have to lean on the case to zip it shut. Fortunately I was sent to bed. It feels strange, is this how normal people pack their cases?
