Catch-up Time - Holiday Snaps Parts 1, 2 and 3

What can I say ?? Two weeks off work (hallelujah !) - and it was planned like a military operation.  So after Saturday workies it was home, change and then drive down to Herefordshire for a couple of days staying with some mates who've moved down there - barbie on Saturday night which was unfortunately the best of the weather over the whole weekend.  

Sunday/Monday was therefore spent NOT walking !!!!  Hey ho - nice to see old friends and some stuff down there

1 - Herefordshire

Left Ledbury on Monday afternoon arriving home early evening - in time to get next set of suitcases ready for a 0400 start to get to Manchester Airport to catch a flight to Crete. 

Thence followed 7 days of glorious sunshine (39 degrees - aargh !), good food and plenty of walking  (can't go on hols and let a postie's legs seize up !). I could say a whole lot more - but I'll leave it to the pics ....

2. Crete

Got back home about 1900 on the Tuesday after - Mrs Smiffy says "I'll sort out packing - you bugger off" (i.e. to Mossley v Hyde United - see t'other post). So I did ...  got home sorted pics from game, went to bed and then it was off to Northumberland the following morning to see some other mates.

3. Northumberland

Another good few days away - good food and beer ... me and Mrs S grabbed a lengthy walk up in the Cheviots as well  (can't go on hols and let a postie's legs seize up !) - a wander round Alnwick saw many Christmas presents bought as well - and it was the International Music Festival as well so we went to a "bit of a do" on the Friday night - very enjoyable.  

Left Saturday morning (late) - once round the beach at Druridge Bay and home - Mrs Smiffy says "I'll sort out unpacking - you bugger off" (i.e. Mossley v Ramsbottom - see t'other post).

And that ............... was that ............  OK we went out for a leg-stretch around  Dove Stone ressie on Sunday before sorting out stuff - and then it was 0600 wake-up on Monday and back to work ...
