    Not on yet Blue-Badger, it's on a week on Wednesday.

    Tell me about it, just collected my wife from the train station, she's been in Austria doing the 'Sound of Music' tour for the last week. Last holiday I had was to Tenerife in December 2011, I doubt we'll get another overseas holiday for at least a year now.

    The last time I went on Holiday was back in February 1973. Since then I have been away for an odd weekend but I have not been away for any reason since 1991.

    I would love to go away somewhere nice, but on the little pension I get there is no way I could afford it.

    I have taken note of the date and time of the Programme and I will look forward to watching it.
    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

    I couldn't believe how most of the people booked with travel agents. Travel agents can only REQUEST accessible rooms. Nothing more. I know we should be able to use TA like everyone else of course but the only way is to book direct with the hotel.

    I hadn't had a holiday in 10 years (2 of those I spent bed-ridden) and since I have carers now I can have holidays and we say YOLO !

    I thought it was a little strange that they didn't book through the numerous dedicated disability friendly operators.

    And I always, if I need wheelchair assistance, contact the airport first.
