Holiday #1 Debrief

Well, I'm back from the Vendée, tanned in all the wrong places for costume purposes, but it's not exactly appropriate to sunbathe in my bare scuddies when it's a family holiday. And I don't just mean "in front of the kids", I mean "in front of the brothers-in-law, and in front of cousins, aunts, uncles, etc". I'm reasonably body confident, but nevertheless, there are times when discretion is the better part of valour! So people will just have to put up with the fact that I've got tan lines that will show when I'm dancing.

I had packed and planned for me to be doing plenty of dance-related stuff while I was away. I took the 5-a-day baladi dress for further beading- didn't touch it! I took my lesson-planning paperwork- it didn't see the light of day! I took my mp3 player and the El Hantour translation, to choreograph in readiness for next term- there's not a single step been added! So now I have my work cut out trying to get all that sort of stuff done now, before I go off on holiday #2.

I need to make a decision about the Saqarah One Night Stand show and email the girls. I'm proposing Baladi of some sort and I'd really like to wear the 5-a-day costume, so I'd best get a wiggle on with the beading!

I had a lovely time, even though it was short. I had fun with my sisters, and the nieces & nephews. I swam in my ocean. I ate macarons & coffee eclairs (the very best sort of eclairs). I bought some almond brandy and sirop d'anis to bring home. All good.

MMMmmm...Macarons and eclairs! Sometimes I hate living in the U.S. I need my French pastries!

Tan lines are annoying. I had to buy a strapless swimsuit for this summer because of my wedding dress. I'm not comfortable being that big and having no straps...But it had to be done!

Glad you chillazed and I'm sure you'll get your dance stuff done in time.
