The Purple shall rule! "I took on my role as a pack horse for our entire luggage with remarkable flair. At one stage getting off a plane I was carrying my laptop bag and hand luggage, Doris’s hand luggage, Tinkerbell’s bag of baby things, another random bag of something, the baby carrier thing and a bag with the fluids in. I staggered off under all of this only to be followed by Doris…holding only a 5 month old baby saying loudly ‘ooohhh my back hurts’."South Londoner in East London
