Off, off and away!

The bags are packed.

The plans are made.

The housemate has a number for the vets and a chicken budget for spoiling the fur-children (yes, I know they aren't real children. But man, I love 'em). I've double checked everything is switched off and safe in our rooms.

The out of office is on the email and the car will be here in a couple of hours.


Excited to visit New York for the very first time - a place I've seen and heard so much about. I've listened to songs about it, seen it in movies and TV shows, read about it in dozens of books. I can't wait to be a proper tourist and check so many things off the list - the Empire State building, the High Line, Central Park, pizza by the slice....

I can't wait to explore Boston and Cambridge in our super quick two days there. Such an amazing place, I'm glad we managed to wedge in a quick visit amongst the other excitements!

Toronto is such a favourite and I cannot wait to return! I'm looking forward to quality time with my girl Christy, catching up with our friends Szymon and Caroline, and exploring bits of the city I haven't seen before.

And then? Vegas. Cocktails and blackjack and shopping and spa times, oh my!

I'm taking my laptop and may well do a quick hello blog while I'm there, but the big posts will come afterwards - I have two new memory cards and I am not afraid to use them! I'll also be sharing lots of fun on my Instagram over at @cmclaire as well as plenty of silliness over on Snapchat, where I'm @cmclaire12

Have a great couple of weeks - it's time to holiday here!

  11. Not joking: we left a daily tin of tuna for the sitter to give to our little'uns while we were away. All we have succeeded in doing is getting two cats hooked on the stuff, and having our house smelling faintly of fish.
