Winter escape and some flowers for you.

Quick post this morning.
My husband and I are flying out for a little holiday to Fiji in the morning, for a week.
I am getting excited about going, to bask in the sun on a tropical Island and looking forward to a relaxing time, not doing very much except for swimming, walking, reading and eating.
The last time we were there was on our honeymoon, years ago!

My husband is really happy as there will not be any shopping and he will not have to walk along the pavements looking at Boutiques all day. ( He is usually really good about it )
I should really be packing my bag and getting some things done here.
I just wanted to say that I am going to miss visiting all your wonderful blogs and I look forward to catching up when I return.
Love these beautiful roses at a Paris Flower market, here are some for you.

I hope that you have a happy weekend.

    My husband has been working really hard so I think he needs the holiday more than me. It will be good though to get away for a break.

  15. Hi Dolores,

    Yes, it will be good to be able to relax in the sun.

    Thank you so much Tracie for visiting and your kind words. I look forward to talking to you on my return.

    Lovely to hear from you Monica and I hope to take some photos there to bring back and show.

    Hi Jessica,

    The weather has to be better than here, we had a frost down near where the ferry leaves.
    I am looking forward to some nice sunshine.

    Hi Leeann,

    I like Fiji because it is only a 3 hour flight and yes, the beaches and sunsets are lovely there.

    Hugs
    Carolyn
