And we are off 2

Finally after several weeks of trying to get away tomorrow morning we will be off up to the European republic of Scotlandshire.

At last. Heading off to the Isle of Arran for two to three weeks and maybe a bit further afield but that will depend on work and / or what we decide to do for the rest of the summer. I cannot believe we wont end up in Europe but we shall see.

I am hoping its going to be a Kayaking, cycling and scootering trip with loads of activity. Really hoping to use the Kayak most days and see a lot of the island from the water. We have been going there for 24 years but have had a gap of six since we were last there.

The forums all over the UK will be relieved to know that social media has been banned apart from posting odd updates and crying for help when I knacker something.

I will try and update the thread like Tuggers did with any interesting titbits.

Have a good time and keep safe, those are the most important things IMO, broken bits can be repaired/replaced, broken people take much longer.

Hope to hear positive responses as you progress.

Graham, if ever you posted that you were off on a trip I can assure you that you would get the same wishes from me to have a good time, discussions on here are not a cause for long-lasting friction, particularly political ones. Such things blow over and we cannot change any of the outcomes "Que sera, sera"


So, let us know when you are off and I will try to post good wishes - if I don't then it is because I have not seen the post..... nothing else.

Hey Dave, I like Doris Day (Move over Darling) is unbeatable.
Regarding trips, I have posted several times, not asking or even wanting people to say have a good time, but it was noted that I never did receive any, although I do frequently do wish others!
I am sorry I mentioned it, as it was a throw away remark!

We all do that, make throwaway comments that others notice and pick up on - and often we (the Royal "we" that actually means "I") end up in eau chaud......

Que Sera, Sera is one of my favourites and is great while cutting grass (interminable task) made much more pleasant with iPod under sound deadening headphones

Have a good trip twit Bazza, I'll keep the fruitcakes under lock and key while you're away

I still haven't had your holiday approval form so there's a fine of £99.99 on its way to you, payment within 3 hours or interest will be applied at an extortionate rate

Grath, have a good trip too, whenever and wherever that may be
