Flip flop days in sight

Well that's it. We are off later today to catch the round about midnight ferry from Dover. Our aged cousins are arrived after we've left and leaving before we return, it just seemed too mean not to allow them back into the house as this is the only holiday they get, if you call visiting the supermarkets, cleaning and moving my things about a holiday. Actually that does sound a bit like what I shall be doing in Italy plus the DIY.
I've treated myself to these lovely new gold flip flops, Havaianas from Brazil which were considerably more expensive that the rubbish I usually wear, or indeed the free with a magazine ones I current use. The reviews were great, they look lovely, they feel comfy so I'll put them through their paces over the next month. I hope I can get on line while we are away to catch up with you all. I have set up a post to appear on 20 June which will be our ruby wedding anniversary, some never before published photographs of our wedding 40 years ago. We won't be making a big fuss about the date, we certainly didn't at the time, probably still be working on the house. I just wish I'd asked for a pair of ruby flip flops to wear on our special day, might have clashed with the nail varnish though.
