As SWMBO is suffering greatly with hip and back, it appears our cruise to the Northern Lights and husky sledging (not Blackpool) will have to be deferred to another year. As a result we are able to b@gger off in the mh instead. The plan (if it can be dignified by such a description) is to book the tunnel sometime round the last week of Feb or the first one of March at the latest and to head South till we see some sunshine. A possible target area is Murcia unless we change our minds (which usually happens several times a day). We have to be back early April as there are appointments and we have a booking for valeting on the 19th. MH also due for service & MOT before we clear off again for a longer period in May.
