    Fantastic list, very similar to what I pack. I’d add some adhesive heat pads (I have bad joints and muscles), some podcasts for when I’m waiting but my joints are too sore to hold a book, and some nice nail varnish or some make-up, I always feel a bit better if I’ve put something on and don’t look as ill as I feel haha!
