On Tuesday lunchtime, Ashley rang me and said ‘what time do you want to leave on Thursday to go up to Gatwick?’. Until then, I’d been thinking we weren’t leaving until Friday. Don’t know how that happened but the net result was, obviously, having one less day to get everything done than I thought I had.
Cue much rushing around, shopping, organising and general chaos for the following 48 hours.
I’m looking forward to a break, I must say. The weather forecast for Halkidiki looks a bit iffy, much the same as it was last year when we went in September, but it will be so lovely to be back in our favourite hotel in the world and to see our friends again, that the weather doesn’t matter too much. Although obviously, y’know, sunshine would be preferable to rain …
Anyway, just before I go, here are some of my favourite things for September … enjoy!
