I don't normally blog while away on holidays (was that a sigh of relief I just heard?) I am well aware my posts over the last week or so have not been terribly interesting (now I have got your eyes rolling. Was it ever anything but thus?) . Just a few more hours in the day would be nice. As I have said before, this is like a diary and you are most welcome to read it. I very much apreciate and enjoy the interaction with commenters. Let me assure you, if you are on my VIP list, I read what you write and I read a few more recent commenter's blogs too. The reduntant ones still come through when a blogger may write a post six months after their last one. No doubt I will give you the usual day by day description of our holiday with photos upon my return.
If you want to read about previous holidays, click on the appropriate tag and go back. Japan in 2010, Sydney in 2009, Singapore England Paris and Amsterdam in 2008, Broken Hill Australia, two more Sydney visits with R's rels and a visit to Darwin, where we sat in the casino one evening having a drink with R's rels and saw news of the London terrorist bombings come up on the big screen.
Monday is Little Jo's actual birthday, and we will spend the day with her. She is having a party today at a farm. Sister has already booked a stay in the empty Hotel Highrise in our absence, as has ABI Brother. The cupboards will probably be bare when we return. I must remember to lock the bedside cupboard and the filing cabinet. Toys are for personal use and I don't want Sister knowing how much money I don't have or see the reverse mortgage brochures.
Passport, check, no, don't need it.
Airline tickets, check, no don't need them.
Petrol, check, oh, need lots of that.
Bank cards. Oh yes, we will certainly need them.
I will probably still try to read blogs while I am away, depending on internet reception. Catch you all in a bit.
