Holiday stress

The title should really say 'pre-holiday stress'.  We're off to Spain on Saturday and I'm starting to panic.  It's the first time I've been abroad with a baby and so I have no idea where to start!  I'm assuming it's going to boiling hot but does that mean I can just strip him off, or should I cover him up?  How many nappies will I need?  And what about swim nappies?  And who decided that babies don't need a luggage allowance?  They need more stuff than the rest of us put together!

My brain feels frazzled.  A friend advised me to sit down and write a list to get more organised, but I've written so much down that I'm worried I'm not going to fit it in.  I've even worrying about taking some food now.  We're staying in a private apartment and won't be arriving until very late, and there'll be nothing there.  My boys need their food and won't be impressed if they have to wait until we go shopping.  Argh!!  I don't know what I need!

And why is it that you spend ages looking forward to the holiday, then all of a sudden it's on top of you and the stress starts.  Maybe I'm just not organised enough but I feel like there's not enough hours in the day to get everything done.  Most nights I don't sit down until gone midnight.  An extra few hours in the day would really help at the moment!

So I apologise for this rambling post.  If anyone has any tips or advice it would all be gratefully received.  Please?????
