Almost ready for the off

November already, this year's flown by.  It's 3 am and I can't sleep.  For various reasons this has been a really hard week, I've got things on my mind that are keeping me awake, have cried lots of tears this week, was bawling my eyes out earlier.  I've also felt like shit (apologies for the language, but it's very appropriate) for the past couple of days, been very unwell.  I don't want to wish my holiday away before it's even started, but roll on the week after next so I can have the scans.  Betty can sense I'm not right, she keeps coming and resting her chin on my knees and staring up at me with her lovely big eyes, she always wants to comfort me (at least someone does!  Ignore me, I'm feeling very sorry for myself right now).  I don't know what I'd do without her.

I'm more or less ready for the off on Saturday, just the clothes to pack in the case (they're already all laid out in the spare room) this morning and fresh food in the coolbox tomorrow, pretty much everything else is done.

Husband doesn't want to set off until after lunch tomorrow, he said he wants a nap first but I think it's more to do with him wanting to watch the rugby before we go!  Whatever, it's not like we're going far, only to the next county, and the journey will take less than 2 hours, we can't get into our accommodation until 4 pm anyway.  I would have preferred to go early and spend the day in Bude perhaps, but so be it.

A few birthday cards have arrived (thank you TA, I know one of them's from you! xx), I'll take them with us so I can open them on the day.

Not sure whether I'll be blogging whilst away, or even if I'm taking my laptop, I might not, will decide tomorrow morning.  The one thing I'm definitely not doing next week is cooking!  I've made a few ready meals to take with us, and we'll be eating out a few times too, I've been putting money aside for weeks.  There's a pub close by which is dog friendly and has a really good reputation for food.

Hope everyone has a good week x  


  1. ((((hugs))))
    I'm hoping that the lovely things you will do next week can help you to push all the worries to the back of your mind so they don't keep jumping up and pestering you so much (if you get what I mean).
    Much love to you.

  2. Echoing what Joy says. Enjoy the break, treat yourself and rest! xx

  3. {{{{hugs}}}}have a wonderful break and a fabulous birthday when it comes! xx

  4. Have a wonderful time Sooze.

  5. Be gentle with yourself Sue. Enjoy that break and push all the bad things to the very back of your mind.

  6. Hope you have a lovely relaxing break. Take care.

  7. Go, have a nice relaxing time and lets hope you feel better when you come back. I know how you feel Sue. It would be easier if we were both hard as nails but when you are a sensitive person it all gets a bit much doesn't it?

  8. Have a fantastic time.

  9. Hope you have a lovely holiday and come back relaxed and refreshed

  10. Wishing you a safe journey and a peaceful, relaxing week. x

  11. I am glad the card arrived, sweetie. I will be thinking of you on your Birthday and sending love. XOXO
