Let the holibobs begin!

Postby Rosaboobie » Mon Sep 18, 2017 4:24 pm

I have worked harder these past few weeks than I have ever worked before - totally declutteirng and reorganising my house - and I am totally drained - BUT tonight it is the start of my holibobs - tomorrow I leave Sanday at dawn for town, and then on Wednesday I am off to Jersey, my home town, for my school reunion - let the celebrations begin!

I haven't heard anyone use the term holibobs before, RB, but I hope you have a wonderful reunion!

I am spending the night on Mainland Orkney in a lovely little self-catering apartment, and my taxi is booked for 6.30 a.m. tomorrow. Then I have 3 separate flights - Kirkwall/Aberdeen/Manchester/Jersey - arriving in Jersey at approximately 4 p.m. Then I pick up my hire car, and try to find my Jersey rented cottage! It's going to be quite a long day tomorrow!

Some photos of my School Reunion today. The lunch was at a wonderful Hotel overlooking the beach - I had scallops and fresh lobster - you just have to have seafood when in Jersey! And the company was terrific - the 55 years or so that we have been apart just rolled away - what an awesome reunion!

So which one is you in both of these pics?

I've been thinking about you all day and how much fun you would be having!

Indeed! My class of 1965 all look pretty darned good yet too!

I'll bet you had the most exciting adventures from where you've lived and the things you've done!

And tomorrow its a reunion lunch with my "drinking pals" that I used to go out with each and every Friday and Saturday when in my single years ha ha - about 25 years ago - - onwards and upwards - I am a lightweight these days where alcohol is concerned!

Rosy...You look like you're having a terrific time! You ladies are clearly all young at heart. Drink a toast to yourselves at your luncheon and give them our best from the manor!

Nice picture of you all, looks like everyone is having a good time (and I quite like the tiger top).
