These are a few of my favourite stops

The time has come, my little friends, to talk of food and things! (as the walrus put it) Admitedly not all of these things are related to food, but they are related to my holiday, which starts in exactly one hour and 40 minutes. I'm so far from being ready. The house is a mess because we had a dinner party last night, the suitcases are still at the top of the wardrobe, my passport is somewhere at the bottom of a drawer, the sat nav needs updating, BUT: the ferry tickets and hotel reservations are in the process of being printed, and I have a present for everyone we're going to see. Could be worse. 

These are some of the things that just happen to be on the way between destinations. Isn't it nice to know that you can stop for the best pork pie ever on the way to see your favourite aunt ever?

where we will be stopping on our way to...

...this tea room in Brighton

Now I'm off to configure my out of the office automatic email reply. Such fun! 

I don't know how often I'll be posting in the next two weeks, hopefully I'll manage a couple of pictures from time to time. Please cross your fingers for glorious weather because at the moment things aren't looking good for our little camping adventure in the New Forest!
