My sister-in-law recommended going to Saty and I found three different sizes. I’m terrible at judging measurements, and it’s always difficult to tell how big things really are when they are displayed in a big store. But I’m a fairly light traveller, and Hannah’s baggage limit is the same as mine, so I should be able to get her clothes and all her other stuff in her suitcase, with the new one just for my stuff. So finally I decided to get one which was recommended for 5 days. I thought that considering I am going to be able to wash clothes, I only need clothes for 5 days anyway!
After I’d bought that, I took Hannah to the soft play area. There were two other mothers there and we struck up a conversation. Hannah was manic crawling around there at the speed of light. When she’s sleepy, she often gets really manic, and then collapses into sleep. It turned out that both of the children (both girls) are around the same age as Hannah, and one of the mothers gave birth in the same hospital as me. One of the girls has her first birthday three days after Hannah’s. We exchanged phone numbers and agreed to meet up again.
