It is very exciting. I planned it myself. We are going on a secret trip around a secret location. I will not tell you, for fear of stalkers. It will be the trip of a lifetime.

The LTLP had to be talked round, and is still a bit dubious with parts of my itinerary, but she will come round when we get there. We all need a holiday. Her, as she is a bit stressed and tired, and didn’t get any birthday presents apart from some lipstick that makes her look like a prostitute. Me, because I have been working so hard. The Toddler, because it will be educational, and she will love visiting the home of the banjo oh dear I have given the game away.

I will be back at the end of the month.
