I am going to New York! Woot woot!! Oh I am so excited!
Ok, calm down. On Bonfire Night me and Jayne were talking about holidays and stuff, and how we both wanted to go to New York, and then looked at each other and I said ‘We should go!’ And she said ‘Ok!’ And so we are. And seeing as the BA November Sale ends today we figured we might as well take advantage of it, and, as of two minutes ago, we are booked! (Well, the flights are.)
On January 31st we shall be flying to JFK for 4 nights. And then we are going to sightsee and do really touristy things and also shop, so the damn dollar better stay as it is until then. Please!
I am so terrible at spending money. I was booking for both of us and so got very hot, and then my palms went all clammy and I hovered over the ‘Book Now’ button for ages, making sure everything was right and I hadn’t accidentally put my name was ‘Bob’ or something (not helped by the fact that Jayne was Victoria at birth and so I had to check if that’s what she is on her passport too. She is, and well remembered Carrie.)
Ten weeks to go. I haven’t been since 2001. The whole skyline has changed since then. If anyone has any pointers on where we should stay, and what we must see, do let me know.
I feel a bit faint now. I might have to have a lie down.
