Easter Departure

I'm leaving tomorrow (Wed) for up north, to the home of the Pirate's parental units, for Easter. I will be back the following Wednesday, 11 April. I may or may not be blogging during this time period, it's tard to hell.

I'm looking forward to this trip, which will include (but not be limited to) the following phenomena:
  • The Pirate's birthday (there will be an absolutely amazing chocolate-raspberry cake involved, but owing to my chocolate addiction and subsequent personal ban I will not be partaking of aforementioned cake. Instead, I will be partaking of the Pirate.)
  • The funeral of one of Pirate's close colleages (this is obviously not going to be one of the fun bits, but it needs done)
  • A big ol' Pirate family gathering, including both parents, the only brother, the paternal grand-dame, and all the aunts/uncles/cousins on the father's side. It's going to be quite an event. I hope I don't get people's names mixed up.
  • Church on Easter Sunday. (I bought a ribbon to tie around my straw hat to match my dress. I feel very posh.) I'm not a church-going type these days, but I have very fond memories of Easter mass, and I just LOVE all those Alleluias!!!!!
  • Hot hot Pirate whoopee
As you can see, it's going to be a busy trip. Be good and behave yourselves until I get back.

I'm pretty sure it's a sin to have pirate worshipping type relations at Easter time but, whatever; you just go and enjoy....

No chocolate? Not even for Easter?

have a lovely time-sounds like you will.
sad to hear about the Pirates' bud, though.

It's Easter. Chocolate's practically obligatory.

Have a great time!

Support to the pirate! Hope he appreciates you being there for him.

Funerals can be great fun, you just need to go to the right one.

It seems Bristol can only handle one of us at a time. Now I'm back for a bit, you're off up north. Have fun (except at the funeral that wouldn't be very good)

Have fun (except for the funeral - however tempted dont try and start a mexican wave.......it never goes down well).
I bet you weaken and have just a little bit of chocolate.

Glad to hear you've got an Easter Bunnit there, pet! Fingers crossed for lots of hot pirate action... xx

A neglected stream of thought omeprazole has received no such occupation, and from a suppressed or rejected one this occupation has been withdrawn; both have thus been left to their own emotions.. A bargain's a bargain, an' I allus stick to one I make, and he virtuously took naprosyn a chew of tobacco while he inspected the afternoon sky with a clear conscience.. It should be, moreover, observed that all the dreams of one night prove on analysis to originate from the same lithium sphere of thought...

Don't do the whoopee at the funeral.
