Half A Lemon joke?

It's not about a priest by any chance......

I actually started pack yesterday. I've got most of the stuff I need - just need some extra food, booze and a few extra bits. I purchased an inflatable pillow for Poundland to save space and it's pretty decent.

Inflatable pillow? Sounds cool. I am just going with the pillow case filled with a hoodie/other clothing :)

Lanyard has been laminated. Unfortunately, the Deli Kate menu side is incomplete as she hasn't released the menu in time for my lanyard schedule but that's OK because she probably very busy right now.

Finished work for the week today. Looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow morning, before picking up my rental car at noon, picking up a few bags of nuts and fruit at Sainsbury's, and then coming back home to charge camera batteries, pack my photography and computer gear, and pack a weekend bag in preparation to hit the road Friday morning.

If you see a tattooed female photographer with a dyed blonde Mohawk-ish hairdo and a 70s band t-shirt, looking vaguely harassed and exhausted walking around, that's me.
