I'm an optimistic packer. We're taking Snicket (4) and Boo (1) to Italy for seven days and I've got out four novels, a PSP with 4 games and two films and a portable DVD player with a CD wallet of about 20 DVDs all to fit in amongst the nappies, toys and Mrs Backroads' thongs.

What are the chances of tackling any of those? Slim, that's what. I'm gonna unpack them all.

Yes, what's far more likely is I'll buy some something highbrow at the airport like, er, NUTS and that'll be my intake of culture for the week. At least Ryanair won't be able to charge me for being overweight.

Oi! The cases.
