T (Travel) minus 12 days.
Did I dream it? I thought I had measured our suitcases and discovered they were too big according to the airline website! I had therefore issued Martin with instructions to hunt for new ones.
Not wanting to venture out into the freezing weather unecessarily, he measured them again, and said I may be mistaken. (Yes, yes, all right, I DO remember the kitchen worktop incident! Even though he chose not to mention it this time...). So when I get home he suggests a cup of tea and a recount.
