Have l been missed?

Well, this is how my holiday went ............. grab a coffee and read on.....
Friday 13th feb hubby loaded the car with ALL our luggage - mine, his and our sons.
Saturday 14th feb 4.30 am Hubby decided he was not going on our caribbean cruise as he was petrified of flying (he has become more petrified as the years go on).  As you can imagine a few choice words came out of my mouth, Michael was in tears as he was looking forward to some golf in the caribbean with his Dad, he brought his case back into the house and on checking it he had actually brought mine in - can you image me arriving in Barbados with a case full of hubby's clothes .....
Being quite an independent person  and never relying on the male specious l set off for Manchester Airport.
I had the most amazing holiday ever - l went the beach on eight different islands and in Dominica it was the annual carnival which l watched, then walked to the botanical gardens all on my own and climbed the two hundred steps to the most amazing viewpoint.
.I went to a show every night after dinner, all in all it was  the best holiday and l can't wait to go again.....on my own :)

So here are a few pics
This is the life.... and you only live once. The Ventura on the left.

Me having a relaxing G&T on our balcony

Carnival day in Dominica

This is the viewpoint from the top of the botanical gardens l walked to
 you can just see the ship below...my feet ached after this walk in 28 degrees 

This is a stunning beach l went to in Antigua - Turners Beach

Me watching the world go by in Grand Turk - what a view...

A rare photo of photo shy Michael after dipping his toes

All dressed up for dinner on Black/White night

This is a luxury $250 million yaght complete with helicopter and speedboat on board 
moored in St Maarten

This monster dwarfed the Ventura - some of the balconies had hot tubs on

Another beautiful beach, this time in Barbados with the Hilton at the end, l walked all the way along.

Every holiday comes to an end but this one could have gone on a bit longer as P&O were offering cabins for £200 for two more weeks added on ...if only Michael had not needed to go back to college we would have stayed on.
Did l phone home...... no way.
Am l speaking to Norman.....just about, but will never book a holiday overseas to include him ever.
How much money have l lost......don't even think about it...
Did l miss my blogging buddies.....of course l did x
Hope you enjoyed my photos x Susan x

  11. Good for you Susan! The pictures look amazing and sounds like you had a fabulous time. We went on a Carribean cruise and my DH hated it was so grumpy all the time so we won't be going on any more you probably did well to go without him if he's anything like mine lol! Susan x
