My bags are packed! It took several tries (and lots of ziplock bags) to get everything into my backpack so that it fits within dimensions and the weight restriction of 5kg (11 lbs). Air Transat apparently weighs and measures all carry-on baggage. I'm glad I'm allowed a purse and camera--I stashed heavier things in there!
Knitting is allowed on Transat and British Air, but not Thomas Cook (my return flight), so I'm casting on for socks that I'll start at the Harry Potter midnight showing tonight. Hopefully I'll get them done while I'm gone.
2 more sleeps!
