I've been meaning to post all week to say we arrived home from holiday last weekend after a fabulous two weeks in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island during which I managed to tick off my bucket list 'visit Green Gables'. Well worth it (and I owe SLOC big time for dragging him all over several LMM sites that day!). Both provinces are gorgeous - PEI every bit as beautiful as LMM depicted.

I went to P E Island some years ago, it's beautiful indeed. I went to an LMM conference which included a tour of all the AOGG sites, which was a wonderful experience!

Tickets went on pre-sale this morning for my favourite band's farewell concert.

I was in court with work so my husband had to lurk online to buy them - the site kept crashing due to sheer numbers, but he got them eventually. I'm off to Stirling next summer for a really, really big ceilidh!

Oh I would love to go to PEI. I'm so glad it lived up to expectations as well. I've always half wondered if it would.

Congrats on the tickets as well, these things always seem to go on sale when I'm at work too.

Has no one been happy since the last post 20 days ago? Or have you all been so happy that you haven't had time to post?

I'll reanimate this: I had a sunny day out in Amsterdam yesterday, meeting up with an ex-colleague and friend from England. On the train on the journey there and back I managed to read my next book group choice.

I've finally got round to doing the guided tour of Manchester Town Hall - having lived here all my life and never been round the areas that aren't open to the general public before! - today, before it closes for refurbishment. I get over-excited over anything to do with Victorian Manchester and the cotton industry, so the guide probably thought I was very weird, but I had a lovely time :D .

I had a nice day in Bath yesterday - a friend and I went to a Book Fair.Didn't spend very much though was tempted by some nice gaily jacketed EBD and EJO. I do have copies of them and I decided a kong time ago I'be content with what I have and not splurge on early/first editions.

I too am happy. I have just completed part two of the four-part drive back to the UK, arriving safely at the home of my oldest friend, near Bonn.

I spent last night in a hotel on the autobahn between Nürnberg and Wurzburg, which boasts an indoor pool, two saunas, a steambath and an aroma bath, plus the best breakfast buffet I have ever met. All this, coupled with a truckers' restaurant famed throughout Germany, makes for an excellent stopover.

Tomorrow, Ryanair permitting, my daughter flies in from the UK, and my goddaughter from Berlin, and we will all be reunited for a four day break before daughter and I move on to other very old friends in Holland. Back in the UK on Monday 30th, if all goes according to plan.

I am hoping for no more Brians or Ophelias. The Hook-Harwich crossing is long enough as it is....
