I haven’t written a blog post since the first day of lockdown when I created a ‘to do list’ to stay productive over the coming weeks. I thought I’d follow up on that post with a little update on what I’ve been up to since then, in the 5 weeks since lockdown. I’m writing this blog post now as in a few years time I’ll be able to look back on it and remember this very weird situation and can remind myself of exactly what I got up to! I’ve been furloughed so I don’t have any work to be…

So.. things are pretty weird for everyone right now. The world is a mess and things are so crazy and no one seems to know what to do.

Last year we decided to splash out and book a big holiday for 2020! I went on a cruise to the Bahamas a few years ago and I absolutely loved it, so Gavin and I chose to book a 7 night Caribbean cruise with Royal Caribbean! In May we’ll be sailing aboard the Harmony of the Seas which is the second largest cruise ship in the world and stopping off at Perfect Day (Royal Caribbean’s private island in The Bahamas), Cozumel, Roatan, and Costa Maya. A lot of people seem to wrongly think cruises are boring, stuffy and for old…
