I wonder why it is that packing is just as stressful whether you go for a week end or two weeks? But incredibly stressful it is... This is what it looks like (or at least feels like) in our house ;)

The two older girls recognised themselves straight away. DD1 asked why she was just standing there looking cross. Well...


  1. Hehe i love that little drawing!! I hope you manage the rest stress free and hope you have a brilliant break :)

  2. Fabulous cartoon - I'm sure it'll be worth it in the end! Happy holidays x

  3. I recognise that cross face - looks just like my youngest! I love the fact that clothes are being thrown out as fast as they get packed! Have fun! Helen

  4. Hey there! Here from the Blog Hop! Just wanted to let you know I'm following you via GFC! Hope you'll get a chance to visit me :o) You can find me here:

  5. Thanks everyone. The trip that inspired this post has actually been done already (I just didn't get a chance to finish the cartoon until after we came back!), and yes it was very nice and definitely worth it :) Until the next time we have to do some packing and will be thinking "Why, oh why, oh why..." ;)
    CP, coming over to see your blog!

  6. Too funny! I know what you mean and I am going to be doing this in the next few days! Thank heavens I'm prepared with my HUGE packing list :o)

  7. I love this drawing and I hate packing! Although my picture would show my 6 year old packing everything but the kitchen sink and Hubs asking me why I always take so long to pack (I pack for me and the kids while he packs for himself).

    1. Haha, my 8 yo is like that, packing everything in sight but generally none of the essentials (like clean underwear!).
