Waiting at Sydney Airport to check in for my first international flight in two years, I'm hoping they don't weigh my cabin bag, as I'm convinced all the extra paperwork I've had to bring is adding at least a kilo! (OK, that's probably a slight exaggeration - but I'm known to "carry on" in more than one sense of the phrase.)
