Tomorrow, Anna and I are sloping off for a break sur le continong. Two weeks of Froggery, consisting of:
  • Red wine, bread, cheese, barbecues and salads
  • Going to bed early and getting up late
  • Reading all the stuff I didn't get time to read for the previous 11 months
  • Bike rides (pedal) if it's sunny; drinking beer if it isn't.
Strange things, holidays. I drink as much as I please and eat as much as I want, and yet I always lose weight. I sleep at least 10 hours a night, when 6-7 is my usual average at home. and it always takes me three days to wind down enough to start enjoying myself.

Last year was a bit of a no-hoper for a number of reasons, so we are hoping for a decent break this time. I will be taking the lapdog and I am hoping the place we are going to has wi-fi, so blogging may not be absent, but will almost certainly be incoherent and irrelevant. What's new, eh?

    Hope the pair of you have a great time.

    And may you have the weather you prefer for the activity of choice.

  2. Thanks Mike - I'm sure we will. I'm going for 'sunny and warm with occasional periods of hot' - I'm sure the beer will take care of itself. Cheers!

  3. On you vacation why not test ride a couple of cycles? Have a good time, rest and drink well!

  4. I hope the holiday is ideal Richard. Some folks deserve an ideal holiday.
