Off To See The Queen

December 8, 2007 -

It’s 10:30am on Saturday morning and I sit here at the trusted computer. Heidi is finishing the packing as we are leaving in an hour or so to make our way to Southampton for our adventure on the Queen Victoria.

Since the packing began yesterday Heidi has constructed a force field around various articles in the house and statements such as ” don’t touch that toothpaste, thats for the Queen Victoria trip” ……………………………….and………………………” I have just ironed that shirt, don’t touch it…………don’t even look at it.”

Now, considering we are going for just three nights, I have just seen one huge suitcase on the bed and various smaller bags……………..I would make a comment about this to Heidi but as I do not want to have her shoe petruding from my bottom…………..I won’t say anything……………….. .except here on this blog of course.

Anyway, the reason I am writing is to say a very quick hello and to apologize that over the next few days you will be blogless as I will be on the vessel. However, next week I promise a host of daily blogs and guest interviews and of course a comprehensive blog on the naming ceremony of Cunard’s wonderous vessel complimented by lots of photos.

So, I am now being summoned by the Mrs so she can show me what I cannot touch and where she has packed my underwear and socks and to remind me that I have done nothing to help.

Have a great weekend and I will write on Wednesday after our return.

Your Friends

John and Heidi

Hi, I’m John, and this is my blog. So please don’t mistake my opinions — or those of my dear friends, fans or commenters — for those of Carnival Cruise Line or Carnival Corporation. My apologies in advance for anything I may say that upsets you, but this disclaimer covers Carnival and puts the blame directly on me………….. bugger.
