Going Places – from the Garden…….. oh yes we are!

Goodness, I don’t like to complain but isn’t it hot! I know we should be grateful as we get little enough good weather during our Summers, but working in an office in this heat was all getting a little bit too much for my colleague Ben and I so last week we hatched a plan. We both live in the same village, Alvechurch, which is not far from Head Office in Redditch, Worcs, so we made our personal office in my garden. We are lucky to be able to connect to the office server from literally anywhere, so why not outdoors? It worked so well that the ‘garden office’ is still in full swing and will remain so as long as the warm weather lasts. A friend told me last night that this is the start of a 3 month heatwave so i don’t anticipate moving indoors any time soon. While Ben loves the sun, I need the shade of a parasol to work under. I am entirely the wrong age for such temperatures! One client asked if we were working in an aviary as he could hear the birds twittering while we were on the phone!


I must admit it is so much nicer than working indoors, you get a gentle breeze from time to time. I just have to keep moving around the table to keep in the shade as the sun moves round – good exercise at the same time then!

There are some great deals around at the moment. Celebrity are still offering all-inclusive drinks and on board credit, Royal Caribbean are offering 20% discount on all cruises along with on board credit, and perhaps the best offer of all is from Cruise and Maritime. They are offering ‘buy one get one free’ on all 2018 cruises, half price and great valule for money. There is also our fantastic range of packages to choose from, something for every pocket, from Smarter Packages to once in a life time Bucket List trips. Why not check out the offers on our website and give me a call if you see anything you fancy – 0800 408 6084 or drop me an email at hannahw@cruise.co.uk. I shall be under the parasol in the garden just waiting for your call 🙂


Happy Cruising Folks!
