Welcome back!!! Can't wait to hear about your latest trip
Thanks. I am still playing catch up both at work and here and I am working 8 days in a row at the moment which makes catching up on here a slow process. I can't wait to get the trip report started. I have the first day typed up and the second day is nearly ready, too. I need to get started on downloading photos, which will be quite an undertaking.Welcome back!!!

Take your time; your reports are worth the wait!Thanks. I am still playing catch up both at work and here and I am working 8 days in a row at the moment which makes catching up on here a slow process. I can't wait to get the trip report started. I have the first day typed up and the second day is nearly ready, too. I need to get started on downloading photos, which will be quite an undertaking.
Thanks. I know there is no pressure, but I really want to get started. I am just downloading the photos from the first day at the moment.Take your time; your reports are worth the wait!
Thanks. Only two days more to go.Good luck with getting through so many days of work in a row!
I am working on day three at the moment and I have now started to download photos.Looking forward to hearing all about the trip!
I am, but doing my trip reports is what keeps me sane. However busy I have been, I managed to get the first three days all typed up and I am working on day 4. I am making good progress on uploading the photos. I have 350 photos to go from my DSLR camera and then I need to get going on my point and shoot. Already when I look at the photos, it is all starting to feel a little unreal so for my sake more than anybody else's, I need to get cracking with this.Yes indeed, take your time, sounds like you're very busy with work. That being said I'm very much looking forward to hearing about it
This is not an option here either, but for different reasons. Working shifts makes it really difficult to plan anything.It would be different if Fran was not adamant about not having guests over, but she is so embarrassed about the state of our house she won't let me entertain.
That does not sound good at all.The problem is we have so much stuff to get rid of it will take years for her to list it all on ebay. We can't take more out of the old house because we have too much here already. We're caught up in a catch 22.
I have posted the prologue and day 1 will go up on Thursday.Looking forward to hearing about your escape!
I was very pleased with how everything worked out.Sounds like things got off to a very smooth start.
That would be one scenario and sometimes there are big gaps between TGVs so if there was none for over an hour, I would take to the local trains as well.I guess you would only use the other one if you had to stop somewhere?
It was wonderful to have her around. It will be strange being my myself this time.How fun to have Michelle share this experience with you.
It definitely is and the irony is that the confirmed flights on EasyJet were less than half the price of standby flights on Air France or Flybe. That was not a hard decision to make.Nice that you had flights secured.
Yes, but for the most part this adds to the charm.Jo and I soon learnt take everything and add ish to the end
It definitely is. Don't they understand that people have planning to do?But the late release of information can be frustrating.
I am pretty sure that this is where I will end up for lunch tomorrow.I like girraffe chain also. Lunch looks nice.
The TGVs are normally pretty good.The trains sound like they are on that ish time...
I like it, too.Rum and raisin is my favorite ice cream flavour and you don't see it much!
I don't think I have ever had rum in a savoury dish, but I can imagine that this would work really well.I adore rum in dishes both sweet and savoury.
He definitely is a keeper.What a true Gentleman he is.
This will have to wait until Sunday as I have another date with Monsieur Mouse tomorrow.Looking forward to reading more.
It was. They serve the best Chinese food there that I have ever eaten.Dinner looks great!
I had to think what you may have been referring to and came to the conclusion that it must have been the mushy peas, which is something quintessentially British and usually served with fish and chips over here.But was that bowl of wasabi to go along with it?
It was a lovely evening.Nice that you met up with Michelle and had a lovely Chinese dinner.
I did.Have a great trip.
I should be able to get an update in before you leave.I'll be on my way soon after you return!
I was really relieved about this.Glad the lines for pick-up weren't as bad as expected.
I really missed this on the most recent trip.Yummy food!
