Tickets arrived this morning, always a great feeling, didn't quite do a dance as had just got home from another punishing hour at the Gym...(keep thinking about all the lovely things to eat in Meeru to keep me going!!)

Now all we have to do is re-think our packing....we are going to meeru for 18nights, and three in Dubai, we are flying Emirates so no problems with weight allowance...only thing is, my husbands company car has a tiny boot (Alfa Romeo Mito) which is fine almost everyday of the year but when you are a family of four going for this long, it's proving a bit annoying.

Have looked into hiring a car here, and leaving it at Birmingham, but the airport car places are not open at the weekend's or in the evening!!!! Helpful. We live in Suffolk, and our nearest family that could drive us are in Bucks...no chance there either....got a quote for a taxi, 250 each way...ouch!!!!

Nothing for it, will have to look very carefully at my dresses and make some very difficult decisions!!!!!

We are due to change our car later this year, and am going to insist on something tank like at the very least!!!!!!

Still, can't really complain, just over two weeks to go before escaping this awful weather, can't wait!!!!!

Hi Chill,

Yes there is a back seat, but the children are in two of them...the third seat does fold down, which we do, but it's still not a big enough space for a big suitcase, only a medium size, the boot holds two medium cases too, which I can hear people shouting...surely that's enough, but three medium suitcases between four isn't really much...I will put a cabin case too under the childrens feet!!


I am guilty too of always taking too much with us, so will cast a critical eye over everything again.

Still I shouldn't complan, better to be going with limited space than not at all....at least we don't have to take beach towels!!!!

We went 4 adults with 4 suitcases we have a small boot so it was 2 in the back, one in the middle seat and one in between the legs of one of the persons in the back haha!

How old are your kids, could you get suitcases behind the front seats under their feet/legs as well as using middle seat? Or sit one in middle and fold down other seat to get more in the boot?

Thanks all...love the suggestions...especially leaving the kids at home...if only!!!! Sarah, our children are 6 and 10.....we do put them together, then fold down the third seat and make them have a small suitcase under their feet...the third seat though, folds to the floor, which means you can't put anything there...I reckon a man designed that!!!

I am doing well though, have already discarded two dresses and a skirt so moving in the right direction!!! Will also make very good use of the laundry service...love it anyway as the smell on the clothes is just lovely.

Will just never let my husband get a 'silly' car again...mind you mine is a C1 so can just about get a handbag in the boot!!!!!!

Not long now!!!

That's so funny! Laughing

I know what you mean about the lovely smell of the clothes after they've been returned from the laundry - it's fabulous and lasts ages!
