Hope you're having a great weekend. Just about managed to squeeze a quick trip in to Bolton Abbey - it's near Skipton in North Yorkshire. The whole estate is fantastic to walk around - but a real highlight at this time of the year is the walk between The Strid and The Cavendish Pavillion. They have loads of events going on through the year - and it's well worth a visit to get some fresh air. The web address is http://www.boltonabbey.com/ . Have a little look - and make sure that afterwards you sample my recommendation of the best Fish and Chips in the UK at Bizzie's in nearby Skipton. Has to be done. Right - packing again to go back down to London for TJC. Looks like I have some nice trips and news with TJC and The Holiday and Cruise Channel to come.
Hope you all have a great week.
REPORTING FROM SICK BED - CHORLEY, LANCASHIRE :)
Well, what can I say?? Not a lot, it would seem as my voice seems to have all but vanished!
A couple of my colleagues have had such things recently, and it seems it's my turn. I just about croaked my way through my TJC shift on Monday evening (minus the "oh yeah, wah wah wah wah" singing for The Deal of the Day) before I bowed out and lost most of what was left of my voice. Thanks to the lovely team at TJC who looked after me, and have filled in around me as I sit at home under forced silence to try and recover.
Thanks for all of the lovely messages of concern - I'm absolutely fine (other than the being quiet bit) and taking up some of your ideas for remedies. I'm gargling, dosing and inhaling everything under the sun to try and fix it ASAP.
In the meantime, I'm catching up on a lot of messages and bits that I haven't had time to do for ages (in between sleeping almost as much as Jacob, my cat at the moment). Again, thanks for lovely e-mails, Facebook and twitter messages. Much appreciated and I hope to be fighting fit again for next week.
Could this be the early signs of Spring in April? Well, if the sun shines in Lancashire it has to be a good sign. Hope everyone's keeping warm. Still feels like it's a good time to book a holiday. Where to though? any ideas or plans yourselves?
