I’ve been very lazy about posting this month. Shocking, specially after my marathon blogathon in October, and everyone else seems to have been really busy. Each time I look there’s a new post to read, often with delicious sounding recipes. Any other year I’d be busy cooking myself,  but this one we’re taking ourselves away for Christmas.

It’s been about eighteen months since we travelled outside of the UK and over two years since we flew away for a holiday so I ‘m quite excited. It’s also the first time I’ve been to a different country for Christmas so that will be an interesting experience. And it’s been a while since I’ve had to look out my warm weather clothes in Winter.

One downside, as we’re flying we can’t take DogS with us, but she’s going to spend the holiday with MasterS so they’ll both like that. Me? I’ll be accosting dog owners and asking to pet their pooches. ( I do this even when we go to town without DogS).

So, it’s been notebook out and packing planned; trying to cover most eventualities, though I doubt there’ll be snow. I’m hoping I’ll be able to take a dip in the sea but might have to settle  for a paddle. I’ve got hiking boots and heels, a backpack and sparkly handbags and a niggling worry that my carry-on bag will be deemed oversized.

And inside my checked bag, I’ve also got one of these.


but no vintage glass penguins, I’m good at packing, but not that good.
