Well, it looks like it’s finally going to happen. That’s right. John and I have finally managed to get our schedules in harmony and book a holiday together! I made the bookings today, and have paid for the air fare. It’s happening. It is!
We are going to Thredbo at the end of this month, after the Australia Day weekend. No, we aren’t expecting unseasonably late snow; Thredbo is, apparently, very pretty during early Summer and the wild flowers should be blooming in time for our arrival.
In the 7 years since we have been together, it has been difficult enough to schedule a day off together – let alone enough time to go away together.
- There was our trip to NY in 1997 via a student exchange program, but we both worked full-time. That doesn’t count.
- Next, I have vague recollections of 2 days spent antiquing up in the Blue Mountains a few years ago. That’s the closest we have actually had to a holiday.
- Then there was our 4 week NY trip 2 years ago – but John was there for a show he was participating in, so that was really work too.
Hey, now that I think about it, our anniversary is on the 27th, so this will be an anniversary holiday. Funny how these things work out.
