FLYING AWAY....... again!!!!!


It was all going to be beautifully paced today. As ever I had it sorted out in my head so it would run like clockwork.... Best laid plans of mice and men though got in the way!

Which has meant an extra two and a half hours in a car that was thinking about breaking down, so had to be driven very slowly. This meant all the wonderful sunshine has gone to waste, so no walk for me and eldest.

It's meant scrabbling around trying to sort out transport for tomorrow, hurrah for brother in law who's lending eldest his car for a couple of hours to take me to the airport.......

..... Cause I'm off again!!!!!!

To Philadelphia for the New Year. My mate and I have it all planned, no drunken parties where I try and snog total strangers this year for me. This year we are going to stock the fridge with goodies, get the champagne on ice, order in loads of DVDs and we may stay in our PJs all day if the mood takes us!

And do what we always do talk and read, with the occasional tarot reading thrown in for good measure. As I've said before I've been so many times to stay with Eve that I have no need to go anywhere , except the book store to get in a big enough pile of books to keep me going for a week, which will be about 4/5 books

I had also planned to write a long post..... but gotta pack and de-stress myself after this afternoons car journey.

I'll be back next weekend, but if I don't sleep whilst away I'll probably spend too much time here as well.

Nevertheless whatever I end up doing I want to wish that everyone who reads this, particularly the ones that comment a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!

And I look forward to us continuing to get to know each other next year.

The photograph was taken by my friend when we were out walking last Wednesday with a decent camera! As opposed to my phone which is what I take all my pics on.

I'll bet you're having a wonderful time there in Philly. You are one travelin' woman. Very cool! If I had a little more freedom I'd hit the road myself.

Be sure and tell us the books you bought.

And....Very Happy New Year Byrd!!!
