We haven't had a holiday in two years. We had two weekends away this year and since then Steve has been working on the house and I have been writing every evening and weekend. We managed a few walks at the weekends and some visit to the pub together but I have had to go to readings on my own while he worked.
Two of my books are now ready for print and another is coming out on Feb 14th, an anthology with others. I am teaching one girl now each week and we have had gusts in the guest house so I decided we are going to put the money toward a holiday. I also put the money I saved by buying reduced food toward this holiday.
We have booked the Ridge Hotel at Lake Tahoe in California. It is near the Heavenly ski resort and we can drive to San Francisco and Sacremento for day trips to get the warmth. Looking forward to Margheritas overlooking the lake after a sunny day skiing.

How exciting Badpus. Have a fab time and tell us all about it! I got an email for say Virgin Atlantic were having a sale so I clicked on but oh dear, the prices have rocketed. Richard Branson said it was due to Brexit and oil prices going up. My son lives in the US as you probably know so I'm always on the loo out for cheap deals.
Hi LL. I accept the prices are influenced by oil and Brexit but Virgin prices are always going up and down. We spent two weeks looking for a window where the price dropped and booked it or it would have been ridiculously expensive. Virgin are still cheaper than other ski companies as they want to fill their planes and drop the prices accordingly.
