Getting ready for the long-haul

Carry on

The top: Must be light but also warm enough to stand up to that cold, recycled plane air. A pattern that helps distract from my inevitable food spills is a bonus. Pictured: Bonds Stretchies long-sleeved tee with navy and white stripes.

The bottoms: An elastic waste is essential – I give very little notice when I need to use the loo, so every second counts. I also like pockets to hold important things such as: crayons, food I don’t want to eat and mysteries I find on the plane floor. Pictured: Bonds Stretchies trackies in grey.

The shoes: Wear shoes that look like boring old shoes or wear shoes that look like cars. I choose the latter.Pictured: Converse kids.

The accessory: This novelty wooden watch gives the appearance that I can tell time. It’s awesome-o’clock – always. (I have no idea where this watch came from).

The read: A long flight is a great opportunity to catch up on some reading. I am currently into “Dinosaur Zoom” – it really brings to life both paleontology and the automotive industry in a rigorous debate.

The hydration: My cute, collapsible tiger water container makes drinking water even more necessary. Pictured: Foldable tiger water bottle.

The bag: The brighter the better – no mistaking what’s mine in the overhead compartment. Pictured: Fjallraven kids’ backpack in yellow.

The comfort: There is no thing in the entire world more comforting than my knitted toy sloth. He doubles as a pillow and my BFF.

Carry on

And then, of course, we need the layers.

    Presumably elastic waist for nonelastic waste! Happy travels. Hold mummy’s hand. Sometimes she gets frightened.

      She cried most of the flight. I asked her “why are you scared”?
