New Countdown

I have finally booked our family holiday!

We left it this late to try to save a bit of money. You can either book a holiday early, paying full price but get exactly where you want to go and what you'd like to do. If you book later, the prices will be lower, but selection will be very limited.

We are going back to the Greek island of Skiathos. We've been to this island twice before and have had a wonderful time both times. We know the island so there will be no surprises. We know the buses, we know the restaurants and most important of all we know where the mini golf is! We can just relax and have a good time.

We know a few people on Skiathos. In fact, I've just e-mailed a couple of people. Henry and I learned to dive on Skiathos two years ago. We're looking forward to showing off our improved diving skills.

As ever with the holiday, I've started a countdown. Take one pad of promotional post-it notes from the boot (trunk) of the car and write a number on each page in descending order until you get to 1. Thankfully, as I have left it so late to book a holiday, the countdown starts at 20. I think last year's countdown started at day 74! Naturally that took more than one pad of post-it notes.
