October is here

October is going to be a good month. The start of November won't be too bad either

I've been on holiday with my sisters.

My whole family is getting together to celebrate my Dad's 65th birthday. 

Cass and I are celebrating our 30ths together.

I'm going to the 2nd blook club meeting - hopefully I'll have read the book by then.

O and I are going to Iceland - any recommendations gratefully received.

The O's family are getting together to celebrate his Mum's birthday.

Somehow all of this means I'm managing not to work a full week for the next six weeks. Woop!

Holiday break down

Do you know what really sucks at the start of your holiday? Having the car breakdown on the way to the airport at 3:45am. Waiting on the breakdown truck to arrive and poor #1's husband having to come and collect us. Delivering us to the airport 10 minutes after check in closed. Sprinting with #1 through the airport to make that flight, because we'd checked in online and could make it. Leaving #2 in the airport to change flights and deal with the large suitcase which was the reason we didn't all get to sprint through the airport. Waiting in Malaga airport for #2 to get there. Suffering the car hire guy bitching about us not taking their extra insurance. 

All of that sort of ruins the first day of your holiday. Do you know what makes it better?

Sunshine. Spending time with my sisters in almost complete silence because there was no need to make conversation. Reading our books, eating well and soaking up the sunshine. 

We've all some how managed to attach ourselves to men that can't sit still. Who need to do things while on holiday. So we holiday together and don't have to do anything.
