I’ve been scrapping photos from a mini break in Venice we took to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in 2008. Such fun to re-live the holiday!
But, here’s the story:
We were due to fly out on the Sunday, our anniversary being on the Tuesday. On the Friday evening we were walking the dog and chatting about what we would do when we were in Venice, when I suddenly said, “Wouldn’t it be funny if my passport was out of date?”
Gulp! Guess what? Yes, as soon as we got home, we checked it and found it several months out of date!
This set us off into major panic mode! It soon became evident that we would have to go to London on Monday to get a passport quickly. Maurice managed to change our flights and hotel reservations to the Tuesday. So.. an unexpected trip to London! It was incredibly nerve-wracking as I was sure we’d forget something necessary for identification. But no need to worry, it all went very smoothly.
And our mini-break? It was truly wonderful! We absolutely loved Venice, no better place to spend our anniversary.
I’m linking up with Sian’s Storytelling Sunday.
Finally, here’s my page for yesterday’s crop. Our theme was ‘soft’, and I couldn’t resist these photos of Nicholas way back in 1991 jumping on our bed! I’m happy to say this LO was voted everyone’s favourite, woohoo!
