Santa didn't bring me a Mac which I was hoping for but maybe next year. I just don't like tablets or iPads and I really need a laptop with real computer programmes & a printer.
One nice thing I hope will motivate me & that I'll be able to blog about is after 6 years in retirement I have a job! I'm starting work next year as a travel tour manager for a rail holiday company. I'll be accompanying passengers on rail journeys in the UK & Europe and I'll need to research the tour itinerarys so that's a good excuse for a new laptop.
I'm hoping to see places I've never travelled to before & take lots of photographs. So I'm hoping to do a lot better with blogging next year.
Meanwhile here's a few photographs from our last cruise holiday.
A very modern Christmas Tree in Paradise Island, Nassau
Now I have no idea how the twinkling was added. It just popped up on my Google+ page. Magic!
Paradise Island again
I really liked these pastel coloured buildings near the dock at Paradise Island. Not sure whether they were holiday homes.
We left the ship after our transatlantic crossing form Southampton. This is the Eclipse leaving Fort Lauderdale for her first Caribbean cruise of the season. We were surprised to be able to watch it from our hotel room balcony. We had an amazing view of the harbour & could see all the cruise ships leaving. Didn't see many arrive as they were usually docking very early morning.
St Sebastian's Church, Fort Lauderdale
Went to a lovely service here where they very kindly offered visitors a lift back to their hotels. Enjoyed the art & craft fair too where they had a pancake brakfast.
I won't bore you with any more! For the moment anyway.
Have a great year everyone in 2014!
