Expensive mistake at the airport

Travelling Thomas Cook airplanes is costly. Just suffered the embarassment for the first time ever of having to unpack my luggage in front of at least a million people because our very reasonable two cases and two flight bags were overweight. After transferring stuff from hand luggage to cases to get each bag under 5ks, the cases were 8ks overweight so we had to pay £64!!!! Horrors. AND I had to throw away my tupperware box of salad. An expensive lesson learned - buy your toiletries when you get there, force yourself to buy the airport food, or prolong your diet for another day!! I was warned that the £64 is 'one way' so I will be giving stuff away before we travel home.
