Crikey. Only fourteen days to go now. I'm trying to get things in a little bit of order, so I don't end up running around like an idiot two days before we go. I still will end up running around like an idiot, but I thought I'd make a list anyway.

In seven days I leave my job, and as my job is running a pub (after a fashion) I also have to leave my home and move in with my parents (which, of course, they're thrilled about and always delighted to see me).

So I made my list in two parts. The urgent stuff and the really urgent stuff. And then I thought I'd stick it on here, because then I can cross something off my list.

I feel validated.... Now, time for a rest.

Things To Do In The Next Seven Days

Go to the gym. A lot.
Find some boxes
Pack everything
Get rid of my car
Cancel phone line, Internet.
Write letters to Credit Card companies..... Perfume scented paper.
Get Pocket PC doing what it's supposed to.
Book train tickets for London.
Buy my bag before they give it to someone else.
Stop playing online poker and actually do things on list.
Learn German.
Read books based on heaviness, leaving lighter books for travelling with.
Prepare for my 'exit interview' (read angry meeting).
Attend above looking suitably dishevelled.
. Continue to update travel blog so that can look back and laugh at some stage of my life.

Things To Do In The Next Fourteen Days

Buy travel insurance.
Continue good work re Gym. Oh, and then cancel it before they get that money I owe them. Go to hell for dishonesty.
Buy Interrail Ticket
Buy an awful lot of other stuff.
Buy some socks.
Acquire an awful lot of money.
Go to London.
Go to Leaving Do.
Have drinks with friends without spending all my money.
Cancel Mobile Phone.
Get passport back from miscellaneous embassies.
Learn Mandarin (but only when sufficiently fluent in German)
Address the alarming ratio of technical gadgets such as pocket pcs and cameras and mp3 players to other more mundane items like clothes.
Buy some kind of hat to cover hair (if possible also not make me look like a twat).
Sunglasses. Turns out that cheap ones burn retinas.
God! Dentist! Forgot that one. Go to dentist, don't pay for service, burn in hell.
Cash in online poker money while there's actually money to be cashed in.
Fill in 'Leaving The Country' tax form so I can get my 1200 income tax back.
Buy a packet of European made Marlboro Lights and seal them securely (I'll thank myself come Thailand).
Don't, under any circumstances, suddenly think it a good idea to buy a hardback addition of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. If that worried about it, buy a hammer and a table instead.
