Cheerio from Sharm!

December 26, 2009 at 16:15 (1)

Our holiday in Sharm El Sheikh is almost over — this is our final night, before we fly home in the morning. The week has flown by, and it’s been one of the most relaxing weeks I ever had. Normally I like to do as much as possible on holidays, to see lots of sights, visit old monuments and buildings, climb mountains, etc. But this week we just lazed by the beach and pool, went snorkeling almost every day, had a few swims in the pool, lazily prepared for dinner in the evenings, ate leisurely meals, then either watched a movie or flicked through TV channels, depending on what time our meal finished at. I usually get itchy for action if I’m that inactive, but this was just what the doctor ordered this time round — after all the writing, editing, touring and moving of house of the last few months, a week of downtime was delightful. Now we’ll have a few days of shows and seeing friends in London… we’re going to a wedding on Monday, and I’ll take in a Spurs game next Saturday… and of course we’ll celebrate New Year’s Eve with a party in our flat which overlooks the London Eye. Then it’ll be back to work — boo!!!!! Oh well, the good times can’t last forever — they wouldn’t be so special if they were the norm…
