So week 1 of 2016 has been and gone. How are we all feeling?

I’ve got to admit I’m feeling pretty good, my boot has come off and I now just have a teeny gel insert for shoes and crutch when needed.  Bye bye booty

Amongst daily work life the biggest thing that’s happened this week is that I am preparing to go on my new year holiday. Every year I like to go away in January, not only is it my birthday this month but also you can get some pretty amazing deals on breaks. 

So this year I’m heading for…….America. I’ve never been to the states before, and may never have an opportunity to go so I’ve decided to cover 2 sides. Las Vegas and New York. I love visiting new places and seeing different cultures but this is my first trip to a county whose first language is the same as my own. 

I’m not sure what to expect, I have met very few Americans in real life and majority of my preconceptions come only from those on tv and film. Not always flattering so hoping real life interaction will dispel these. 

Packing has been a challenge for this holiday as I need to cover 2 different weather situations, mild in Las Vegas and hat scarf and gloves weather for New York 

  All the essential, boots, underwear, crutch!

   As you can see I love a bag or 3!!

  Brrrrr looking like a cold front 

Tomorrow is final day before my trip which for me means repacking  and last minute panic!

Wish me luck

See you on the other side
