It was lovely to leave the cold ad snow in Teesside on Thursday and ecgange it for the warmth and sun of Egypt. We have come to the Hauza Beach hotel in Sharm to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. So those who have logged of for scrapbook insoutstion will just have to make do with my ramblings and photos from my blackberry!

I will try and remembe to have fun whilst recording our adventure. I managed to do my usual when we first come away on an all inclusive break, sample the strength of the local brew. I got so drunk on the first night I was ill and didn't get up until 11am the following day. Even then I needed painkillers to get rid of the hangover before I could face food.

Well now I know how strong it is and in future will moderate my drinking

For today anyway…
