Holiday ahead!

I know, I know I've been missing again. Only thing to say in my defence is that life has been crazy . Hopefully it will settle down a bit soon so I can actually achieve something!!! I plan to keep my posts short and sweet this week and a lot more frequent so I can actually share with you!

To begin today I must apologise, I think on my last post I made it sound a lot more exciting than it actually is. Friends have opened a new business and I am their retail sales manager so the references to the new Homespun magazine were actually a full page ad and where there was a small spiel about the business was also a photo of moi! So sorry nothing more interesting than that!!

Today's exciting news is that we have planned an unplanned holiday - are you following me??? (don't blame you if you're not!). This week Qantas and other airlines announced hugely cheap flights to the US, in fact less than half their normal prices. No we can't afford it and no we shouldn't but we have!! Life is short and we have decided this is one opportunity we are grabbing with both hands and running with it! SH works 2 jobs and I work 3 and we have a tax return due any day (from last year!) so we deserve it! We have booked flights (although not paid yet - in case we get cold feet - we have a few days ) for the September school holidays and all of us are very excited. I will need help from my fellow bloggers with planning and accommodation etc etc. Any advice gratefully received. We will only have 3 weeks but will make the most of every minute.

After all that I have received 3 wonderful parcels this last week from Kerin, Kim and April so will post about them in the next few days. I feel very spoilt and blessed today.

I'm so happy you're coming to the US. What part of the country will you be in? Do you have any family or friends here or is this just a site seeing vacation? Have fun with the planning and don't get cold feet, I'll help you if you need anything. I'm in the northeast part of the country.

I'm not sure we get the Homespun magazine here at least I haven't seen it. Is it a craft magazine? Do you have a destination in the states? How exciting.

It sounds like you work really hard and you deserve a holiday! - I have just booked a holiday for us to go to Greece in August, (my sister is getting married there) we weren't sure whether we would be able to get, but decided we deserved it too! - Natalie x p.s - look forward to seeing pics of the goodies you've received

Good on you !! That's the way to do it,as puinch said to Judy, strike while the iron is hot and have a wonderful couple of months planning where you will go.

You will have a great time! Qantas is crazy cheap right now. I saw trips to Japan for $300!!!

What part of the country are you going to?

Busy times for you and I'm seriously behind in my blog reading. How utterly exciting, you'll so very much enjoy it. You didn't say where in the US you're going??????? Enquiring minds need to know.
