The Boyfriend and I are heading off on holiday on Friday for a week driving round Scotland and the North of England catching up with rarely seen friends.
It’s our first holiday together since we went to Egypt in 2010, and with both of us off for two weeks, it’s actually the longest time we have spent together since we met way back in 2008.
It may well all end in tears….
(but we’ll try not to think about that shall we?)
Oh yeah, New year, that’s it.
Fingers crossed that for me, it will be more like the beginning of last year, for the whole of the year this time round.
Have a great night everyone.
This is where Boo and I stayed in Gretna, where our friend is the General Manager.
I could get married here.
Just chilling out by the pool….
SEVEN AND A HALF HOURS, yes seven and a half hours on a bus EACH WAY, but well worth it.
Exploring the deep without getting wet.
It may only be a 5 hour flight to Egypt, but you’ll be surprised how long it truly takes to get to where you are going. Today has been mostly taken up with travel…
05:20 Taxi arrives at the parentals. Time to go.
06:15 Arrive at Birmingham airport, and have a cup of much needed coffee.
06:30 Check in desk opens, join back of quickly growing check in queue
07:05 Finally check in and head upstairs to departures
07:20 Clear baggage check, and head off in search of Breakfast!
07:35 Sit down with refreshing pint (who cares about the time) & await food
08:30 Spot that we have been called to board and head off to find gate
09:20 TAKE OFF!
14:30 (GMT) Land….
15:15 (GMT) Finally escape the chaos that is Sharm El Sheikh airport
15:50 (GMT) Arrive at hotel
16:05 (GMT) Almost Eleven hours after leaving home we finally dump out bags and go looking for Beer.
Today’s method of procrastination? – Booking a holiday.
It’s been a whole day affair, involving a trip into town to pick up a tonne of brochures. A two hour lunch in the pub while I peruse them all quietly and create a shortlist of destinations / hotels. Followed by an afternoon and an evening scouring the interchoobs for the best deal.
Throw in a couple of hours ranting and frustration as the price / flight availability change by the minute, twenty minutes frantically searching for the debit card you know you had earlier, and all of a sudden you realise the day is gone.
You can however now look forward to 10 whole days away procrastinating under the Egyptian skies.
