"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Is there anything you don't leave home without?

    I'll have to look at the picture tomorrow @Lynne. I suppose, apart from a camera, a kettle or means to boil water is top of the list as a travel accessory I don't like to be without.

    As for my taste it is a bit filigree. I do not know to I snor or have fights at nights, therefore this stand would be too weak for my use.

    When I am on a journey I have big problems by using the toilets. Most of them are too small where I can hardly move. I often have on a warm thick anorak and some bags with me.
    If you hear someone bangging on the cabin walls near your toilets cabin it could be me.

    I want that aero-tray!
    Not for travelling but for at home. :)

    A fan is another very useful travel accessory.

    I would take alonge a wet towel, becaue when I am on a journey I often get the need to clean my hands.

    A large size man's handkerchief has the same use. Here I'm finding keeping one handy very useful to mop my brow as it's so hot.

    Tissue papers and a bunch of chocolate s are essential for me.

    Folding cane! I try not to forget this.
    So far I haven't needed it though. :)

    Those nifty folding chairs are good if you're going somewhere where you might have queue for a long time.

    I found a blow up cushion for my neck has come in handy on long bus rides.

    I always bring my laptop.

    I always carry a packet of tissues with me nowadays. I'm worried I'm turning into my mother.

    It depends where I am going to. But for a distance traveling, I usually keep first aid items like a mini packet of tissues/ a small napkin, safety pins, pain killers, a bandage and plaster, some salt and sugar. Sound weird but these things are always in my bag.

    I don't forget to keep my sunglasses and a small knife, yes a small folding knife. :)

    I always take my Kindle everywhere. Because of that I don't waste my time because I can read books at any time :)

    I have given up on taking a small penknife @bubbli, as I've had too many confiscated when I've forgotten to pack it in checked in baggage.

    Usually I have a small folding umbrella, my tablet, camera, a pen and small notebook and some tissues in my hand luggage.
