But Jane had an argument with John. So we decided not to go.
We then planned to have two weeks in the sun.
Then Jane's mum had to go into a home and we couldn't afford to go.
So, as it's our 10th wedding anniversary next Thursday, I was determined to do something special.
About an hour ago I booked us into The Wild Boar in the Gilpin Valley, near Windermere in the Lake District. We spent the second night of our honeymoon there so it's as good a compromise as I'm going to get at this late stage.
I'm looking forward to staying; the food and wine are excellent. With luck I'll have wild boar one night and venison the other (menu permitting).
