We are flying to Edinburgh on Sunday then spending a few days in Scotland, so my husband John can revisit his childhood haunts. After that we will be travelling by train to London, where John will be celebrating his 70th birthday on 1st March with friends and family.
I am currently working out what clothes to pack. As you can see below, my winter coat, several of my thicker tops and a couple of cardigans to layer will definitely be on my packing list.
|My travelling outfit - if it's cold when we leave I may wear a different top|
|Warm tops and a skirt for the evening|
|My new dress for John's birthday party, plus a colourful knitted jacket to brighten up|
any dreary winter days
|Grey wool trousers, navy jeans and a navy down jacket|
|Four more tops, with a common theme|
I nearly forgot! The most essential item for any trip to the UK, which will be kept tucked away in my handbag, is my trusty umbrella.
