Winding Down


It's that time of year again, when I like to step back from the blogs, take stock and decide in which direction they are going. I've found three blogs quite a handful at times, although my husband and and I might be starting a travel blog, if we ever get around to it! However, that's another thing to think about when we're on holiday at the end of the month.

For now, it's making sure I have everything I need for our cruise - all the incidentals and toiletries take such time to organise. Then I want to make sure I'm up to date with all writing projects that have closing dates or self-imposed submission dates. I was going to make this my final post for a few weeks, but no doubt I'll pop back on towards the end of the week and maybe leave some writing links.

Meanwhile, the photo at the top is of one of the ports we're visiting - I've only called in here once before and I'm really looking forward to seeing it again as it was spring last time and not so sunny. Anyone recognise it?

Good luck with all the preparations, Rosemary and have a wonderful cruise.

The photo is gorgeous and looks like Greece. I've been to some of the islands, and loved them, but I'm not sure that I know where this is. I'm looking forward to finding out!

Have a very happy holiday and take care. We'll all look forward to your return.

It's amazing how much time these blogs take up isn't it Rosemary? I'm also thinking of stopping one of mine.
Hope you have a wonderful time on your cruise. Enjoy the break.
I would agree with Joanna - it looks like Greece.
See you in a few weeks!

Have a wonderful trip.

I don't recognise the port, but I agree with Joanna that it looks Greek.

Have a wonderful time, Rosemary and enjoy a well earned relax in the sun!

I don't have a clue where the port is, but it looks lovely x

I'm sure all your organisation will pay off,Rosemary and that you'll have a wonderful holiday.Though I suspect you won't be able to switch out of 'writer' mode for long!

Can I hazard a guess and say it reminds me of Corfu? Have a great trip.

Wherever it is, it looks wonderful.

Have a great time and take plenty of notebooks and a large memory card for your camera, as well as all the other travel essentials.

I think that it looks like Greece too, but I haven't been there, so I can't really say. Have a wonderful time on your cruise. You certainly deserve it after working so hard this year!

Thanks for all the comments! Most of you are correct - it is Greece, or at least one of the Greek islands. But I won't tell you which one yet (not Corfu, Anne, although we're calling there)!

All the preparations will pay off, Rosemary, and I'm sure you'll have a wonderful cruise. Give yourself a decent break before you log on - ignore the withdrawal symptoms!

Wishing you a safe and happy trip x

Rosemary Gemmell said...

I will try, Joan - thanks!

Thank you, Diane!
