I'm on Vacation!!

As of yesterday, I'm on holiday until June 1. No big deal, you think? Well, this is the first real holiday I've had for ... maybe 10 years? I can please myself, set my own timetable - no work to prepare, noone to look after (except, of course, my dear dogs...).

So, what am I going to do? Work in my garden, get my house in order and... maybe ... a trip to England. My mum wanted her ashes taken to her home village, and I'd like to be able to do that this year. At the end of June, I'm having my hip surgery and will be laid up pretty much for the rest of the summer. So. I'm scouting for cheap fares, and may make a quick trip at the end of May. I'll keep you posted.
