Fortunately The Pirate is much more pro-active than me and has found a suitable carrier case for herself.
She has also offered to help me pack by going through my cupboards and drawers.
Where we might go, when we eventually go, I am not sure. Forse Italia? Like I said I am making this decision at the pace of a slug ( the types of which The Pirate likes to capture and lay on my bed as potential crew mates for our future big voyage.)
Three-Paw of course prefers to observe from a perch ( or more often these days - the middle of my bed.) Obviously any move would have to be made with her consultation and may involve her getting passported. We will see.
