I have finally packed my very big suitcase
In 12 hours I'll be at the airport waiting to board the plane taking me to my 2 gorgeous GD's
I have to travel 10,000 miles to babysit, but I don't mind at all. Their parents are going away to celebrate 20th anniversary so we are gonna look after the girls for the night. The accommodation, dinner, breakfast etc are our anniversary
for DD & SIL, with babysitting thrown in
We are spending 3 weeks with them and then going to Rotterdam to catch
and doing a 14-day Voyage of the Midnight Sun to the tip of Norway, just past the Arctic Circle. I imagine in Honningsvag and Tromso we will have 23 hours of daylight!
We have 8 ports and the rest is cruising different fjords.
After the cruise we go to Brussels for 2 days to see bi-annual flower show. Apparently it's quite amazing, the whole of the CBD is covered in begonias, national flower of Belgium. We are very lucky that it is on the weekend when the cruise finishes!
Then we take Eurostar train and end up in London.
After 3 days in London we
home! There goes 6 weeks just like that!
