Vacation Period

Holiday. Celebrate. Holiday. Celebrate.

ā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠ

I should be going on holiday today. At this moment in time, I should be on a cruise with old people, instead, I am in my flat watching ITV3’s finest. I do not know what it is about this November, but at this current moment in time, seven of my nearest and dearest are abroad, on holiday.

ā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠ

I want to go on holiday. I want to see somewhere I have never seen. I want to take photographs and Instagram them, to prove to people that I have been on holiday and that holiday was really, really cool. I want to go on a plane or a boat. I want to go abroad. Unfortunately for me, I have myeloma and unfortunately for others, the NHS only exists in the UK. This means that I cannot leave these fair shores. I do not know when I will be able to. I also have limited energy and need my home comforts, so vacationing elsewhere in the UK is also a non-starter. Stupid myeloma. I actually hate you.

ā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠ

I had three trips planned for this year. One in August, up to Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival, one in September to a destination that never once and a two week cruise in November. All three had to be cancelled because of My Myeloma. The August trip was cancelled before we knew why I was in pain, at the time, I thought cancelling was fine because I would be going away later in the year. I was wrong.

ā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠ

I have been dwelling on images of new places in recent weeks. I have been to the cinema twice in a week and both films displayed some beautifully shot coastline. I want to see the coast. I want to see the sea and preferably not the Channel. When I am not thinking about going to the seaside, I am dreaming about old buildings that are not Georgian, or, nice countryside with endless trees, or exploration of anywhere but here.

ā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠ

Nobody knows when I will be able to go on holiday again, or dare I say it, if I will go on holiday again.

ā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠ

For the time being, a girl can dream. A some point in 2013, before I have the okay for holiday insurance companies, I want to go to Cornwall, when that is done, I want to go to the Highlands. If I can walk. Then, once I am insured and clear, I want to go to a warm beach, oh and Krakow. Krakow 13, will be where It is At. For sure.

ā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠ

Wish I Was There

ā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠā˜€ā„šŸŒŠ

And yes Madonna, a holiday would be so nice.

One thought on “Vacation Period

  1. I started writing my blog (www.retiredforgood.blogspot.com) for a MM relative who was in the same place you are now… he is better and has been traveling, albeit not out of the U.S., but while he was in hospital, I began sharing my trips with him. That was over four years and almost 300 blogs ago… please come and take a little mini-trip on my site and I am hoping it will entertain you as well as give you some ideas of places you are eventually going to go and see…. things will be better, but it will take some time.
