Off Gallivanting

MrM
Would you like a weekend in Venice in January?
MrsM
No...because we need to use the money
for that Boring but Important thing


Next Day

MrM
If we use our AirMiles
would you like a weekend in Venice in January?
MrsM
No...because you will get distracted
by all the guide books
and not organise that Boring but Important thing.


Next Day

MrM
Glen and Mary and James and Tricia
are going to Venice
and they are VERY DISAPPOINTED
that we are not going.
MrsM
Hmmmm.....


And so it is that we are going to Venice this weekend
with our very good friends

Glen and Mary and James and Tricia

and 12 guidebooks.


I know.
I am weak.

Can't wait to see your photos - I am away so without computer for 10 days so you may have to email me a few for when I get back.

What about the boring but important thing???

As you fly over Paris on Monday morning give a wave to my very tired girl....

MrM said...

I will omit mention of the boring but important item but it is worth mentioning that I have organised a special day trip outside Venice on Saturday as an integral part of the whole visit. This is in the essential but not boring category. There will be about five hundred people engaged on the same mission I think.

I do weak! Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to hearing all about it...I've never been to Venice.

well I hope you have a truly fantastic time.
Mr M - now we are even more confused/bemused/intrigued as to what you are upto, don't forget to take your head out of the guide books, and actually look around!!!

I wish my hubby would talk me into a weekend in Venice more often. Actually, even a day trip to Bognor would be fine.

Have a truly spectacular time.

Having just returned from Chicago for the weekend I will shut my mouth.

I'm jealous! (But I am planning to go away by myself to hang out with a friend at the end of this month and am looking forward to it.)

Have the most wonderful time - I know you will! (Are you going to the rugby too?)

I see that Treviso is near at hand which makes me wonder about your Saturday acivity!

MoominMama said...

but, but, but....Glen and Mary and James and Tricia are FANTASTIC PEOPLE. So the weakness, in this case, was a strength!

Tracy said...

I would never say you were weak ... just very smart! Have a marvelous time in Venice. I've never been there so I will look forward to hearing about it from you.
