Excitement of the Non-Thrifty Variety

Mr TH returned from New York bearing extremely exciting news...


On Tuesday we are going away for 8 days on a mystery holiday. Here are the facts that I've been told so far;
  • I need a passport
  • There is a short flight involved 
  • I need to pack a range of clothes (some smart some comfy)
  • Potentially, it may be a bit warmer than the UK (then again, it may not)
  • During the holiday we will stay in 3 places.
  • I need some shoes for walking around all day (not walking boots though)
  • I can take my swimming costume if I want to but he doesn't know if I'll need it.
I am very, very (overly) excited.  I have never, ever been on a mystery holiday before. My mind is working overtime...but I'm also trying hard not to solve the mystery as I'm thrilled by the idea of a surprise...& relieved that it'll be the end of Buy Nothing New Month so I don't have to feel too guilty about potential holiday purchases. (Mr TH has assured me that he booked it way back before the month had even started)

I am a lucky woman!

P.S. & another bit of good news...there's also the Making Winter Project

So exciting !!! A cruise perhaps ?

A friend has just returned from a Med Cruise. She's left her swimming costume in a plastic bag on the floor of the cabin & the Steward threw it away ! She was given forty pounds to spend on a new one & never did as had a cough.

Can't wait to hear about your lovely suprise !!!

Ooh, where could it be? A short flight -perhaps Ireland but then it wouldn't be any warmer than here Europe then. Walking around without the need for walking boots suggests a big city -Paris, Rome? How exciting! Do tell us when you get back.

How utterly lovely! I was given a mystery holiday once, didn't know a thing about it until the night before. I was taken to Dublin, where I had wanted to go for so very long and it was wonderful. You'll have a good time wherever you end up!
