There’s many a slip between the dock and the ship. I’m going to Southampton for a few days, for a cruise on this here boat. Should be a good experience and so on but the itinerary involves a lot of travelling in a relatively short span of time, and I tend to get crotchety and headache-y when that happens. So fingers crossed etc. Also, there will be lots of things to do and see on board (rock-climbing and surfing demonstrations?! And *groan* a media conference), and little hope of lounging about on deckchairs like people do in brochures (not that I’m the deckchair-lounging sort anyway – way too restless).
Back by the 28th. Till then.
