It's not a Nile Cruise anymore..........cancelled!

We had that dreaded phone call from Thomsons on Tuesday to say our Nile Cruise has been cancelled due to all the unrest in Cairo and Luxor. Talk about gutted as this was going to be a special holiday(and our first in 8 years) for our 25th wedding anniversay. Anyway with alot of umming and arhing we've now rebooked and are going on a cruise Egypt and the Holy Land taking in stops at Turkey, Egypt, Cyprus and Israel. While in Israel we've going on a day excursion to Jerusalem and Bethlehem which I'm really looking forward to. e still might get to see the pyramids if it's safe to do so. Also an excursion in Alanya Turkey to see the Manavgat Waterfall and other places of interest along the way.

We now fly out on the 19th instead of the 28th, so we won't be away for our anniversary but hey ho at least we're going on holiday.
I've had to rebook our train tickets to London too and because Greater Anglia wanted £10 a ticket each way to change the days of travel I just rebooked which was cheaper and we've decided to go to London for the day on the 28th and to take in a show.....Les Mis!
So plenty to look forward to in August now. Yesterday it was debatable as we couldn't decided on where to go, Europe was a no no for me so the other choice would of been America and possible Florida.
Change of subject are you enjoying the weather? It's gorgeous and my tan is coming along just fine.LOL
I'm not liking night time though as I keep having broken sleep because I'm too hot.
Well lots to do.
Work this weekend......

This is your Captain speaking!

A photo of Aaron taking controls of the plane, thankfully the plane was parked on the runway at the time with it's engines off.....LOL
Aaron loves his new job as Cabin Crew for Thomsons.
It was the Bramford monthly crop yesterday, one week later than normal. It was a lovely day with 28 ladies coming along to crop and card make. I think they all enjoyed themselves. It was a scorcher sun wise yesterday too, the heat hit you when you ventured out of the hall.
I'm on holiday now until Friday, yipee. I intend doing some crafting this week and just chillin' as it's been a challenging couple of weeks at work, so I'll recharge my batteries and be ready for a weekend of work from Friday. It won't be long then until our holiday to Egypt........stop laughing all of you we're not going to Cario! We're off to Luxor. I've had the injection so I'm going!!!!

Anyway, have a good week.

Passed first attempt.

My daughter Emily took her driving test today and passed first attempt with only 1 minor, so proud of her. Her brother Tim thinks it's a fix.LOL Here she is getting rid of those L plates.
Sadly she'll only have until September to use my car as we are parting with it. We only kept it so all 3 children could learn to drive and pass their tests, so now she's served her purpose. The old girl has served us well as we've had her for 12 years now, but it's too expensive to keep two cars on the road.
Here's another photo I took of Emily today.........texting on her phone.

It's the Bramford crop this coming Saturday, 9am-5pm. Looking forward to catching up with everyone.
