This is what I had planned to post

I’ll be away for a few days, in  Ljubjl Ljblb Lbjlbj … somewhere in Slovenia.

See you when I return!

Leave a light in the window for me.

And this is what happened. Only I don’t look as good as that. And, there are more used tissues.

I’m so sad. Not only will I miss the trip to Ljbljb … wherever, and seeing Tanja, her dad and her fellow, but I won’t get to see the crazy Dutch folks in the Adriatic on the Lido on New Year’s day.

But, there you go, you win some, you lose some! I hope it’s not too cold for those mad ibernisti! The forecast isn’t promising.

  2. Commiserations, Yvonne, I know exactly how you feel, snff, cough. 😦 Though I didn’t even have a wonderful trip lined up …

  6. Much sympathy. I absolutely love Ljubljana and the rest of Slovenia, and the reason it slips off my tongue so easily is that I set my last novel there. I am the world’s feeblest promoter of my books, but you might just enjoy Border Line – Hilary Custance Green (available as an eBook on iTunes or Amazon). You’d get to visit a lot of the country (though not the coast) in one book…

    Funnily enough ( or not), several years ago, travelling back from Venice on New Years Eve, we felt fine at Marco Polo airport, but our plane was delayed, and when we got to Amsterdam Airport we’d missed the plane we were booked on, and were both starting to come down with a germ or twenty.
    By that time we didn’t want to do anything else in the HOURS we had to wait for the last plane of the night to England, but sit in a heap quietly, as near to the departure point as we could… New Year’s Eve sitting propping each other up, in what felt like a totally empty area of the Airport, a little mouse scurrying around our only company until some Airport staff decided to play a sort of game of football with scrap paper…!!
    We were poured onto the ‘plane, in lousy weather. Nearing our landing, the pilot thought he’d have to divert because of high winds, to another Airport – we’d have groaned if we’d had more energy, because our car was waiting for us to collect it …. but at the last moment the pilot went for it (we thought he wanted to get home in time for midnight himself) and dived in! Bumpy landing, but … at least we were back in England before midnight.
    Think that was the least festive new year ever. Hope you’re soon feeling better.

    Sorry you are under the weather! Maybe this will be it for 2016…. .

    With regards to hanging glass….In Campo San Salvidor, on the corner of Via Due Aprile and Larga Mazzini Merceria, a black, iron dragon clinching a bouquet of three umbrellas in its mouth …this is one of my favorites. I always use it as a turn marker!

  14. Now I really don’t understand the net. You get a cold in the nose and just as I’m reading it I start sneezing and have to jump up and grab tissues. You do put up some powerful post.

  16. Aw, get well soon, Yvonne!
    You can always ring in 2016 wrapped in a warm blanket, with a hot drink, and a wild novel! 😉
    My grandmother on my Mom’s side is Dutch. That might explain why I am the way I am. 😉
    Happy New Year HUGS,
    Carolyn 🙂

  17. Povera bambina! Guarisci presto.
    I’m sure you will be able to hear the fireworks from San Marco even if you can’t see them but maybe you’ll be able to see those too.
    So sorry you had to miss your trip but if you had gone we wouldn’t have gotten the upcoming report of the goings on in your campo. Your loss is our gain we hope.
    Buon anno, cara!

    • It was mighty noisy for ages, and the fireworks were clearly visible behind the campanile of Santo Stefano. Then many of the folks from San Marco came pouring out onto the campo to get to the Accademia Bridge. I had a good seat for the goings on!

    All Dutchmen are nuts – I was married to one for 30+ years I know where of I speak. Happy New Year and keep on trucking in the new year. It looks like I may be downunder later in year hopefully we can meet.

  22. Feel better soon! At least those crazy Dutch folks aren’t doing that polar bear thing where they chip the ice off the lake and jump in. I think that’s Russia?
