Leave of absence......

I'm taking leave of absence from here for a few days.  

We're off to London on Friday until next Monday, so there will be no 55 Flash Fiction this week or Microfiction Monday.

Our trip to London includes a tour around Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament and a trip on the London Eye.   I'll have my trusty camera with me, so will be able to show you what we get up to.    The weather here is just beautiful at the moment and the forecast is good into the weekend, so fingers crossed we won't need an umbrella.

Thankyou all for your good wishes for my son - he's feeling much better now and hopefully will continue to improve.

I'll be around reading until Thursday evening, we set off on our travels at 7.15 a.m. on Friday morning.    I'll catch up with you all on Tuesday next week, so behave!

Have a great weekend, I know I will.

Linda said...

That sounds like such a good time and something that I so want to do one of these days - hence the reason I've got an England in 2012 account going at my bank right now!

Have a great time and I will really look forward to the pictures!

Daryl said...

Enjoy .. travel safe .. then hurry back to post/show us all you did!

Winifred said...

Have a great time. Bet there are some good views from the Eye!

Quilly said...

I hope you have a great time, but I will not promise to behave while you are gone. Why should I be bored when you're off having so much fun?

G-Man said...

Bon Voyage...
See if you can make one of the Palace Guards crack a Smile!!

Cloudia said...

I'm excited about "going to London to see the Queen" with you!

I'm so looking forward to the tour of the Palace Valerie, I've only ever seen it from the outside. :)

I'll miss you too Ron. Be back soon with tales of London. x

I really hope you get to England in 2012 Linda and I hope we can meet up. x

Thanks Daryl, I hope I get some good photos. :)

I imagine the views from the Eye will be spectacular Winifred :)

OK Quilly, you don't have to behave, just don't do anything I wouldn't do! ;)

I'll try G x

I'll tell you all about it when I get back Cloudia x

Have not been to London for quite a long while now, so look forward to those photos.

Will be taking a break myself next week, so it'll be a couple of weeks before we meet again I guess

I always love a trip to London to see the sights! Hope it went well.

I've only spent one day in London, but I LOVED it!! Nice they speak english there so I could get the full benefit of what that rocking town offers. (I had just come from Germany, and my German knowledge is very very scant.) :)

So glad your boy is better.

Take good care!!
