Tomorrow, The Bloke and I will be jetting off for our first holiday in five years. We took the opportunity with my new change in circumstances to book the trip during term time, something that our jobs have prevented us from doing previously, and as a result we found a brilliant deal in Barcelona for considerably less than what we would had paid if we had done the same trip during the summer.
Even after several days of packing and organising, I’ve still got a heap of things to do, and therefore haven’t been able to catch up on all of the comments I’ve received. For that, I’m sorry – I appreciate every single one and I’ll do my best to reply to all as soon as possible. However, for the next week, I am hoping to be fulfilling several items on the Bucket List – exploring La Sagrada Familia and The Gothic Quarter, visiting the Picasso Museum and eating authentic tapas in particular – but I’m mainly looking forward to spending time with The Bloke with peace and quiet and no time limits or demands. And after spending a large percentage of the summer being green with envy at my friends and family’s photographs of their holiday adventures in all sorts of exotic locations, I’m going to take a slightly vindictive delight in posting pictures of my view from the beach. On Monday. When they’re at work. I imagine it will look like this:
However, the blog won’t be completely ignored. I have WiFi at the hotel and a number of wonderful bloggers to introduce you to during my absence – it’s always good to share the #bloglove.
Thank you for all your support, your kindness and your friendship. I hope you all have a wonderful week!
Have a great holiday, Suzie! Now singing, ‘Barthelona’ in full operatic mode. 🙂
Haha! Me too – I’ve had people singing that at me all week! Thanks my lovely xx
You deserve it. A term-time treat I’ll look forward to one day. 😉 x

Thank you! I’m honoured!
Have a wonderful and well-deserved holiday, Suzie! I love Barcelona, very envious of you having a whole week there 🙂 hope it’s a wonderful trip and look forward to hearing about your adventures when you return xx
Thank you my lovely!
enjoy your holiday
So happy for you! Just think, if you hadn’t been slaving at school all this time, you’d never appreciate this trip as much. And now I have to decide which one is the real Suzi- with the hat or not,. Pleeeeze don’t spend your time replying to this one! Just enjoy, enjoy, and enjoy!
Thanks so much my lovely! I had a truly wonderful time… Long may it continue haha!
Try the Sangria. It’s lovely…
I’m not a fan of sangria, but I certainly tried the mojito!
Have a great holiday – you and The Bloke certainly deserve it. Take care – have fun.
My sound track was Madonna’s “Holiday”…. Bon voyage!
I’ve now got that in my head!
When I was stationed in Germany, we heard there was a 7-Eleven in Barcelona. We had planned a whole trip to Barcelona to see if this was true and also to get Slurpees (we were young and impetuous). We were called back home before we actually made the trip. So I am quite envious that you are going, and can’t wait to hear about your adventures.
Such a shame you didn’t get the opportunity to go! I love it – definitely going to go again!
Have a fab time!
Thanks Steve! Hoping you had a good time too – loving the pics!
Grr! Mumble mumble… bloody cheap holidays… not fair… mumble mumble
Haha! If it makes you feel any better we needed to spend a lot more money than I originally thought…
