3 weeks

July 9th, 2011

Not long now.

By this time 21 days from now, we will be in Cornwall. Hopefully everything will be set up and we will be chilling with a glass or 3 of wine. Looking forward to it really, but still have to admit I wish it was France.


Eurotunnel Booked

July 8th, 2011

Booked it!

On the Train

I think the Tesco vouchers are a brilliant deal for the Eurotunnel. I've used them a few times now. 2 holidays and a trip to Disneyland and have not had to cough up for a tunnel crossing yet.

We had a fantastic holiday in the Vendee in 2010 but this year I was persuaded to go back to Cornwall. I do like Cornwall a lot but looking at the recent weather I am beginning to think maybe we should have gone for France again.

The weather has been very wet and we have actually turned the heating on tonight! 7th July and we have got the bloody heating on!!!

Anyway so far I have to admit that I am looking forward more to France in October than Cornwall in August. Although I don't actually like sitting around in hot sun I at least prefer it to be warm and dry on holiday. The weather was great last year in the Vendee and I honestly think that our summer in England is getting earlier in th year. The weather at the end of May/beginning of June was great this year, shame we don't get our holidays until the end of July/beginning of August! It seems that to actually get a summer in summer time we in Manchester have to travel around 700 miles south. I really enjoyed the Vendee, but I was planning on taking my beautiful wife to the Loire to show her all the fantastic Chateaux.

Chateau Chambord

Well maybe next year?

Eurotunnel Vouchers

July 7th, 2011

Well the Tesco Rewards Vouchers for Eurotunnel arrived yesterday.

Couldn't book it though as their booking office was closed by the time I found time to sit down and book it.

Really can't wait to get started. I have been looking forward to this break for so long now it feels like I have been working solid for 8 months. Oh wait I will have by the time we go. Well apart from the 11 days off around the Royal Wedding that is....lol

On a brighter note Harriet got the job!!! She's now a Checkout Girl at Go Outdoors Manchester.
