And we're off.......

This will be my last blog post for a little while........we're off on a much needed vacation ........YAY !!!!!!!!!

Poor Mick has been working like a donkey without the carrot to tempt him.

I've mentioned before he is an engineer on life support equipment. Well today the first lot of completed ventilators are to be shipped for testing on real people for the first time. I am sure you can imagine how stressful a job it is to ensure that it works properly. 10 years of hard work, finally coming to fruition.

So he is definitely needing a are all of his team.

I have no idea where we are going but that is the norm for us.....plans are boring.

We will stay tomorrow night in Vegas simply because it is a cheap convenient stop on the way out.

Truth be told I am bored to tears with Vegas but it is in the right direction and there isn't a fat lot else round there.

Pardon me if that sounds really isn't meant to be and I know many people would give their right arm to visit Vegas. But when you live so close and visit so often it does get boring. It's the kind of place you want to see once every couple of years. Or take someone who has never been there that is fun it see their faces.

So Vegas for the first stop and then we'll likely loop up through Southern Utah, North Arizona and into New Mexico.

I love Southern Utah / North Arizona and I love the deserts. We might even check out the north rim of the Grand Canyon....I've only seen the south so far and the north is much higher.

Or maybe we'll end up in Texas...Mick fancies visiting the Alamo.....although unlike Ozzy I don't think he'll be taking a leak on it lol. We may be from the same town but Mick is a little less crazy :-)

So..... we'll follow our nose and see where we end up.

I'll be back in a week or so....y'all behave yourselves :-)


  1. I hope you have a wonderful holiday wherever you go. You and Mick both need and deserve it.

    You are the ones to behave yourselves - not us!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Ha ve a wonderful holiday!!

  10. Have fun!! There's an award waiting for you on my blog when you get back. :-)

  11. You really should visit the Alamo - lots of interesting history there. And the Riverwalk is such a treat! (Although the middle of summer may not be the best time to visit Texas, lol!) If you enjoy shopping, the outlet malls in San Marcos just north of San Antonio are also lots of fun.

  12. I hope you both have a wonderful holiday!!
