Flower Power at The Paper Shelter

Good morning all

If you're reading this post my 1st scheduled post worked - yay!  - If you're not -it didn't and I just wasted my time here lol!!

I'm off on my hollies today and I'll be in Heathrow airport waiting for my flight  to Los Angeles - a very looong (nearly 12 hour flight)  - and for anyone who read my last post - I'll soon
 be sitting reading my book - or possibly asleep - I can sleep a lot on flights often before we even take off - I'm asleep.  

We're spending 9 days travelling around staying in 4 hotels in California then we fly to Orlando in Florida for another 2 and a bit weeks -a lot of organising of hotels, flights,cars and tickets for various visits, all the driving directions are printed off and filed in order and we're all set to go.  Then I put them all in a wallet and hand them to my DH (see last post!) and that's when he finds out what's going on! - because up until this point he doesn't want to know - but from that moment on he's in charge.

 Ever since the year a travel agent booked us 3 rooms in a Paris hotel, lovely rooms just not in the same hotel!- one in the north of the city the others in the south  - I've never trusted them to book my holidays and I've also found you can get things exactly as you want them whereas travel agents really can't be bothered with precise details - they just want to sell you  a holiday.

Anyway onto this weeks challenge at The Paper Shelter
