It’s official. NO more sleeps ’til I begin my holiday!
Of course that doesn’t mean I’ve packed.
Right now my house looks like a bomb’s hit it. But I trust that in a few hours everything will have been put back into some semblance of order, I shall have found my passport, my swim suit and my kindle, and I’ll be ready at the front door with appropriate luggage.
Holidays. This notion of unplugging from the grid has been there in the back of my mind for months as I’ve waded through 2012. Relaxing time. Writing time. Time to stop and do… nothing! No matter how hard the going got (and at times it’s been pretty tough this year), I’d think to myself November is my month. All I have to do is make it through to November.
Well, I made it. Today Ben and I head off to Thailand, and that’s November sorted.
I’ll be a bit of an ad hoc blogger these next few weeks. But I know I won’t be able to help myself. I’ll want to share what I find with you! All that Thai food, all those wonderful markets and temples and wild spaces and crazy Bangkok shopping. Thailand is one of my favourite destinations.
We’ll be at Kanchanaburi to lay poppies on the POW war graves, and to walk the Bridge over the River Kwai on Remembrance Day.
And some time after that I shall be lying on a beach in Koh Samui, drinking cocktails out of coconuts and succumbing to endless massages.
Did I mention that I’m excited?
I’m excited. Today I start my holidays. I’ll write you from someplace new, and share a pic or two in the next few days. Much love to you, Nicole ♥ xx
