When one thing goes wrong at the start of your trip, is that it?

Jump to last reply

I plan all my trips very carefully and so far things, under my control, have gone very well. This trip has been a series of set backs and we are only on our third day . It started at the airport when I asked DD for her passport. A blank look, then fear, "I left it at home!" Luckily older brother was home and made the 60 minute dash to the airport in time for us to board. Then on boarding I dropped our duty free, smashing all the bottles. Yesterday we went to visit DD new university in Hertfordshire. Some sort of train breakdown meant chaos at the railway stationary and in my haste to get tickets to try and board I bought the wrong ones and paid £41 instead of £18. Then I went to the wrong half price tickets booth and bought tickets to a stage show and instead of getting cheaper tickets I paid £10 over face value. I knew it wasn't the right booth but I went ahead anyway, something I would normally not do. So my question is, is the die set? Is this a jinxed trip and I should reconcile to the fact that I will continue to make silly mistakes for the entirety of this trip?
