A new decade

Hello from a stormy Crowborough. (Stormy everywhere)

My brother has just posted from a sunny Torremolinos. Humph!

Do we consider a new decade as a new dawn? What can we look forward to?

There’s an ideal wish-list and a reality wish-list I suppose.

Here are some thoughts:



Allo. well my ears/eyes pricked up when I spotted the word cruise. That word always has me drooling. Been on some mini ones.but on BIG cruise ships. All were gorgeous…had fab-u-lous times. Cant go anymore cos nasty SS has nicked my respite fund…boo hoo! BUT Mr Snore…you cant go cruising in the far east…corno virus might get you! Boudsx

Hi Steve

Enjoyed the blog as usual, thanks.

Unlike Poll, seeing the word ‘cruise’ fills me with dread, I hate ships or boats of any size or dimension, which makes my next statement sound really silly…I love the sea! By that I mean love sitting watching the sea, listening to the waves, people enjoying themselves, as long as I don’t have to go in it.

Years ago I used to use the ferry to go to France or wherever, but it was my worst nightmare and only a means of getting from A to B, but not a pleasure.

I only tell you my experience as I know it will not stop you going, and wish you a fantastic time on your upcoming cruise, enjoy yourself my friend.

Thanks Pam.

All I need to say is that I acquired my sea legs on the Mersey ferry. It’s my first cruise with a lovely old friend.

Watch this space.

Another enjoyable read Steve. I’m so envious, your cruise sounds fantastic. I’d love a holiday, I can dream. You’ll have to give us a full account in a blog. Enjoy it.
