I went into school with Ben this morning to go to his music lesson, before coming home to get Sam started on his revision ahead of an exam tomorrow, and then 20 miles across country to our dentists for the ritual torture that is a scale and polish.Then took a few shots for my other albums, and home to supervise more revision and working myself. Now uploading before meeting a friend to talk about an interesting business proposition over a pint or two!
So, onto today's shot. The final task today is start booking our annual holiday.
We normally go away at Easter and on cricket tour at the end of May before our family summer holiday. This year we have nothing booked for Easter or May because Sam has his GCSE exams in May and June. So we have decided to have a big three and a half week holiday in July and August.
We are off to Berlin, Bavaria, the Black Forest and Alsace, and I am now in the process of booking apartments, villas, hotels and eurotunnel!!
We have never been to Berlin, so are all very excited at the prospect of visiting one of the world's iconic cities. After this we will be making a very poignant 10 day visit to Bavaria. Rebecca's sister Victoria lived there for 7 years before returning home in 2007. Sadly she died of skin cancer in summer 2008. This is our first trip back to Bavaria since then, and we will be staying in the apartment that Victoria bought as a holiday home for her family.
Finally, a couple of days in the Black Forest en route to a week in Alsace, giving us an opportunity to visit some wonderful vineyards and Strasbourg.
Though it is several months off, we are all excited nonetheless.
Thanks to all for the wonderful reaction to my snow shots yesterday, and putting one of them on the PP.
