Off on Honeymoon

My honeymoon – like quite alot of things in my life – is mildly unconventional.

For a start, I am leaving ahead of my groom (by two weeks). Though we are rendezvous-ing. In south west France.

But it is timely. Not least because we have been married for nearly twenty years.

But also because we have both reached Outpost Burnout.

Getting away, a long, long way away, seemed prudent.

    Great idea! I hope it all goes well! Nice part of the world to do it in! And a chance to get to know your groom after such a short time … !

    Have a lovely time. I lived in Bermuda for a number of years and we contracted ‘island fever’ as we called it and it was a must to have a holiday away from a holiday island.

    Yep. We had 3 days of honeymoon in Cromer and hubbie’s parents kept ringing us up and it rained! We had a better go when we stayed at the Mena House, Cairo, Egypt. Much better and hotter. No telephone contact. Hope yours is as good or even better! “Cin. Cin.” as the Italians say…

  13. Irene Says:

    I hope you have a wonderful time, but what do you do with the little one? Is someone going to take care of her or does she get to come?

    The south of France is so civilized, you will think you have died and gone to heaven, not meaning to imply that you live in some backward, heathen place, of course. Bu there will be luxuries, oh yes.

    Have lots of fun. See you when you get back.

  14. Iota Says:

    Have a lovely time. We’ll all miss you.

  15. Maggie May Says:

    Hope you come back really refreshed & enjoy the break.

  16. nuttycow Says:

    Hoorah! Hope you’re having fun.

    I’d like a suitably tacky gift please.

    Thank you all, thank you all very much. I am awaiting the groom’s arrival; isn’t the bride, ancient and greying as she is, supposed to be the one who keeps everybody waiting?

    I have never been to that part of France; only the chilly north – Brittany during an Easter holiday break from school. It was miserably cold and wet.

    Irene – wee one will stay with her grandmother, being spoiled rotten doubtless.
