Making Plans.

After some heavy rain last night and more this afternoon today has been a pretty miserable affair or at least it's been hard to get motivated in to doing anything very constructive in the garden so I decided to put together a couple of the wire rings ready for storing leaves when I make a start on picking them up. What with putting the clocks back last weekend and the overcast skies it was almost dark by 4:30 this afternoon so I was in the dark by the time I got finished walking Tommy and Tess. Thankfully tomorrow is my last day working Autumn time, from next week I work an hour less for the next four months so I will be home just after four and so will get to walk the dogs in the daylight.

Me and Vicki have been looking through a holiday brochure that came the other day with a view to take a coach trip around either Spain or Italy sometime next year. We were pretty much decided on Italy until we saw the one for Spain which is in an area of the country what we would like to visit. Anyway we can't do much about it just at present as we don't have enough money to book it. I think it would be good to get it booked early because then there would be no backing out of the idea, it's always easy to find other things to do with both the time and the money. I'm not good at committing but once I am committed I am very good at staying on the rails. It's actually quite a surprise to me that Vicki is considering another coach trip as she didn't really like the last one we went on. She doesn't like the long drive to the destination and back but there is no worry about that on the two trips we are considering because we would fly there and back so any coach travel will be limited to the actual country. Anyway I will tell you more about that as and when it happens.

Sounds like a wonderful vacation. I can't seem to find the time to get out of the county.

Spain is wonderful, I lived there for four years and traveled almost every inch of it.

Sara said...

Either Italy or Spain sounds great to me! Hope you go, so I can travel along.

If you like walking, then have a look some time at walking the 'levadas' on Madeira. Hundreds of miles of beautiful walks. Have a google. xx

We spent several days in Barcelona a few years ago and took the train up the coast to the Dali Museum in Figueres. A really nice trip, if you're considering Spain.
