It's amazing how much preparation seems to be required to go away for just four days. Despite my best plans I still find myself with a list as long as my arm of things-to-do before I go. Ironically, tasks that have waited for weeks now become urgent simply because I'm going away, and two things become increasingly apparent. Firstly, they just aren't all going to get done and secondly, my text books will have to come with me. I will still have a considerable amount of free time, but four days with neither work nor study is just not possible.
