Holiday attempt number 2

I've got the afternoon off from work because I still haven't packed for our holidays. We're leaving at about 6pm (ha, in 4 hours) to go to the hotel near the airport. We'll sleep a mere 4 hours tops before getting up to go to the airport for 3am. We're going to Bulgaria for a week of all inclusive heaven.

I'm nervous and feeling a bit blank because I'm convinced we're not going. The Mexico holiday that never was in April has taught me not be get excited about holidays. I'll be excited when the aeroplane takes off, until then, nada.

I really need a break. Although I love my job, unfortunately working with certain people isn't so fun. I'm exhausted mentally and physically and will be glad of the rest. I plan on reading on the beach and tasting as many (free) cocktails as I can.

Now, where is my suitcase again.....? aghh.

See you soon!

Amber's 10

I've been tagged by Amber, so here are my answers to her 10 questions.

1. If you weren't in France, where would you be?


I'd be in the UK, probably London, 5 years into a career, earning more money than I would at the end of my working life here in France.

2. You're on a deserted island with one book. What is it?

Yes Man by Danny Wallace. British comic that changed my life. The power of yes brought me to France.
3. Oh crap, my car broke down and i'm on the side of the road hitch hiking. Would you pick me up? 

The smart broke down? I'd try to put you and the car into mine!

4. You've got the power to wipe one food off the face of the earth forever. Which do you choose? 

Liver, closely followed by baked beans.

5. What were you most afraid of as a child? 

Spiders

6. Where do you think you'll be in five years? 

I'd love to be in Lille, but as long as I have a full time job and a garden, that'll do for me where I am already.

7. You can spend one day in your partner's body, able to read all his thoughts, etc. Would you do it? 

Sure, but I don't think I'd learn anything.

8. You've got a round trip ticket to anywhere in the world. Where are you headed? 

Mexico. The volcano ash cloud robbed me of my holiday of a lifetime there. I want it back.

9. What do you think about hyphenated or double last names for children? 

No problem, but triple ? (I know someone with this) no way. Poor children.... and there's no room on forms!

10. A plane crashes. It's full of people you think the world would be a better place without. Who's on it? 

Only I would know, all their remains would be charred and yucky. ;o)
