One more sleep to go...!

...last few bits of preparation coming together (a little late for Flyingpops' liking) for the trip - the final checking of holiday clothes, selection of books, packing and weighing of suitcases took place last night...I've just fixed the holiday insurance, which was due to finish a day too early (well spotted Flyingpops) thanks to the odd duration of our break (15 nights instead of the more traditional 14), well, not fixed actually, had to completely cancel the "deal" and take out a custom policy which was about £20 more expensive, but it's just not done to travel without it (so there we go)...

This morning I got to the bank at Canary Wharf just before 8am and was amazed (and very pleased) to discover doors wide open, lights on and several personal bankers already on duty who helped me set up a standing order (so the mortgage gets paid while we are away) and transfer the spending money into an account where I could actually withdraw it (subsequently discovered that Flyingpops had already done that bit, so will need to put some of it back again, but at least it was nice to discover that this sort of service exists for the busy denizens of "The Wharf", can't think of many other places, even globally, where that would be possible!), just need to nip out at lunchtime to the other branch to actually get my hands on the cash (as my card has a daily withdrawal limit that for these purposes is a little too agressive)...

Roll on tomorrow!

I wish you both a safe and insanely happy honeymoon, steer clear of the Peyote pancakes and watch out for Dirty Sanchez.
