Oh joy of joys...we are going on holiday this year! I know this because it's booked....and I booked it!
We don't get to go on holiday very often. Himself is self-employed so taking a holiday loses him money. Plus he's been so busy that he's just not had time to take a week off. Which is, of course, a good thing but it does mean we don't get away that often.
We've been threatening to have a holiday with our friends N & C and their dogs for years and, in the space of about 10 minutes on Friday evening, N and I raised the idea again, sorted out the best week that suited C and Himself, and got the holiday booked.
We're staying in West Wales, Carole and Trevor own several holiday cottages near Haverfordwest and are incredibly generous supporters of Greyhound Gap. They donate a weeks holiday at one of the cottages in every fundraising auction that Gap holds. They've recently started to take bookings for a more modern property owned by Trevor's sister. It has five bedrooms, two lounges and four acres of fenced garden so there should be ample room for the four of us and five lurchers.....or maybe six depending on if we're fostering at the time. It's not until October but I am getting giddy at the thought of it already!
Fun Monday Update
I can't believe so many people have signed up so thank you for supporting the first Fun Monday I've hosted! All those taking part are listed, with links, on the right-hand side of the page. Please do let me know if there are any problems with any of the links.
There are also quite a few Fun Monday virgins this week so please do stop by and welcome them to the fold!
A reminder of the topic for this week:
Continuing in the spirit of "being interested in people", I would like to know, or see, what's on, in or under your bedside table! So open those draws and bare your soul to us! Is there anything special there that has a story or a memory that you can tell us about? Books that you keep there to delve into from time to time? Trinkets that you don't know where else to put? Let's see!
Fun Monday Etiquette: It's courteous to visit as many of the bloggers who participate as possible. The larger the audience, the more difficult this becomes. Especially make an effort to visit or reply to those who visit you. Be sure to use a working e-mail address and check your links. ALWAYS link back to the current week's host. If YOU'D like to host a future Fun Monday, simply check with the current host to see if anyone has volunteered.
Hostess for Monday 4th February: Tiggerlane over at The Neophyte Blogger has kindly offered to host next week's Fun Monday!
