When the holidays came, it was a mad rush to pack and be ready to leave in order to beat the holiday rush.
In the early days, we owned a small two-seater car, sporty and prestigious enough to raise eyebrows wherever we went.
Of course, it was always packed to the roof.
With the arrival of children, we needed a bigger car and then when more arrived, (they kept coming, took me years to figure out why and how to stop it), we ended up with a people mover.
This was a great vehicle, you could pack in all the kids and all the luggage including the kitchen sink.
It was when owning this car that the old saying came true for me, that is, no matter the size of the vehicle you will always find a reason to fill it.
