I was woken this morning by my daughter - 40 mins before my alarm.
So I was up earlier than expected and by 10.30am I had baked a cake and done one load of washing. Neither of which were on my to-do list.
Checking through emails I spotted the car we are due to pick up on Friday is not what I thought I had paid for. So after a couple of calls I cancelled and re-booked (saving £140 in the process). Why the hell Hertz would think we want a 2WD Mercedes - in Norway - in January - I have no idea (an accident waiting to happen I would've thought).
Anyway - all sorted now. But, that wasn't on my to-do list either.
I did manage to go and order some NOK from the post office. And pick up some essential pet supplies. Both on the list.
All in all - a good day.
Tomorrow's task is to sort out the camera kit. And maybe attempt some packing.
I might vacuum pack the bedding and towels. That's got to be fun - right?
Some more random photos today - the first three from the depths of my photo archives and the rest from November 2015.
