Hi Everyone,I'm back, I'll try not to bore you with Holiday pictures though!!
Yes We have been away cruising the Med , a special Holiday for us with our silver wedding in mind, even though we don't celebrate it until the 18Th of May, couldn't go then as our son has his Sat's and we weren't allowed to take him out of school then.
We had a reasonable time, though it never entered my mind that I would suffer from motion sickness, so that was a bit of a shock the plus side of it is that I have lost 3 lbs I usually put on at least half a stone when away, so that's a bonus.
I didn't do any blogging on board ship as it was a ridiculous price (50p a minute) and I just felt they were being greedy so I went without for a whole fortnight, I was lucky enough to meet up with a very special Lady who I follow that lives in Gibraltar,
I will tell you more about that another day.
I think this is one of the quickest cards I have ever done, its very simple as you can see hope you like, I know its a bit boring but just wanted to say hello.
back soon .
lots of love Chris xx
I'm still going along with my song titles as my titles,
and yes this ones by Jason Mraz, I adore his music.
