    None whatsoever, if a fabric doesn't drop creases in the bathroom then you can soon arrange to get them pressed. I do use the laundry as I'm on board much longer and find it excellent but on short cruises its the steamy bathroom or steward service.

        Correct don't sleep at all well with changing time zones, never seem to know when to sleep or get up. Edit: Having now found an accurate clock (the laptop is set to remain on UK time or its far too confusing for business) its now just before 7am so not so early best get these curtains back and look at the day ahead. Been awake for hours though reading, browsing and watching Greys Anatomy DVDs.

                  My OH would put her hands up with horror with the thought of ironing on holiday.I feel sure she does enough at home without the need to do yet more work.

                        Mrs Delboy does the ironing in this house, if I suggested she iron one of my shirts on holiday, I would likely finish up with the iron buried in my head.

                          You could/would Carol if you had to, we all adjust. I don't always want to I must admit.

                          When I was hospital based it was more static, he travelled I stayed put, flew out occasionally and then (fortunately/unfortunately depending on your take) my heart problems intervened so flying no more …or so I thought. Now having moved out of the NHS (I paid my dues I did 20 years after qualifying) I can run my present business anywhere (technology etc although I don't really understand that more than I need to, I have my nephew for that) I'm more fluid. Having had the heart op early 2013 that means I can fly again so I'm doing this buzzing about not for me but for OH (no kids all avenues explored and defeated). We support each other's space/different work centres but like to be together at key times. God knows what it must be like being someone famous wife like Kath Botham, Ian flits everywhere. My almost never heard of OH, except to true experts such as the decorator we use at home who is an ardent cricket fan, was also a first class cricketer, know that but he is one of the unsung heroes those in the know tell me. After a second career in local government aligned to his degree, he, after early retirement is now part of the vast network connected to cricket that beavers away in the background but intimately ties to the test, T20, some world cup or other or Blast series etc circuit. Have to say he has my admiration he has been part of raising over £8 million in the last 2 years alone to support young cricketers playing in other countries to gain experience. Can you tell I am so proud of him and his team?

                          Enough cricket just to confuse you more Friday I'm flying to Sydney to attend my cousin's daughter's wedding and am so looking forward to it. To my absolute surprise as she is 62 my cousin asked if she should come get me in her plane. No she's not a millionaire she and her family farm in the deepest outback where to see your nearest neighbour means travelling 500 miles, so she chooses to fly. Been there last year not somewhere I could live but she has done so well acclimatising for a rural Northants gal who emigrated over 35 years ago. I'm more than proud of her and what she has done. Her 4 daughters voted with their feet they all live in major cities and are all doctors. Myself I prefer to use air miles to get myself to Sydney rather than in a clapped out crop sprayer (explained it in different context to her) so I'm treating myself to Quantas first class.

                          Sorry got into too much detail but hope that explain a bit of me and my life Carol

                            Wow, all sounds very glamorous and a jet set lifestyle. My OH is massive cricket fan so your unsung hero could be more appreciated than you realise by the fans and raising that enormous amount of funding is spectacular, no wonder you are proud..Carol

                              I thought you were in the Caribbean for 3 months....then in Melbourne, now Sydney.
                              you are truly a remarkable woman with a truly remarkable husband, kudos to you both.
                              incidentally Kath Botham belongs to a club I am a member of, heart of gold and even though Beefy has been a bit of a handful he knows where his bread is buttered.

                                In total I think my stay will be spread over 6 months in the Caribbean October 31st to almost end of March but no way was I going to be there full time but it is my base. I've only met Kath briefly once, Ian Botham, I think twice (charismatic chap must agree but I prefer dependability). Husband says better stay away its easier, I think (unbelievably I hate cricket and don't pay too much attention) but think they were on the test team for OH last year, Ian star, OH making up the numbers as he describes it. I agree with you Kath is in my not too knowledgeable opinion a woman who copes well and forgives more. All credit to her. I cannot ell you how proud of OH I am. He lives and breathes cricket. He played at best levels although not a star by any means,more a safe pair of hands, he won't be on Strictly anytime soon. But he has worked his socks off to develop ground standards in local cricket, helps local clubs develop and worked tirelessly to get young cricketers assistance to star. I don't give a toss as to what folks think of me but OH is the real deal certainly where cricket is concerned as well as a great husband.

                                Cruisedreams I will be all over OZ in the next few days catching up with relatives after the wedding is done. I have enough of cricket in small bursts and am already in disgrace as I failed to realise the world cup was on. It is so not glamorous cricketing or travelling but very worthwhile to catch up with family and friends. I hope that Jan 12th will see me on my way to first the UK then on to Barbados where I can lie down for a very long time, work permitting which will actually mean for about 5 minutes on past experience.
