I am on the count down, in fact I am counting down two different travels. Firstly on Monday 19th November, I am off to Marrakesh in Morocco for three night with my friend Di, to soak up the climate, the culture and the cuisine. It will be the first time that I have been abroad without my son or my husband since we have been married and I am so looking forward to it. Yes I am nervous, for many different reason; will Noah be okay without me, will Neal remember to put the rubbish bins out, will they even notice I am gone! I have my Lonely Planet guide, a fully charged Kindle with plenty of reading material on it, a small suitcase perfectly packed. Even as I type I am getting exciting at the thought of three days of pure chill out time.
My second countdown is a family one, an amazing one at that. On January 12th 2013, my parents are taking us (Neal, Noah and myself) on a two week cruise in the Caribbean. To say we are excited is an understatement. I think what has added to the excitement is the fact that this was only finalised and booked on Monday.
