Happy New Year and Memorandum Monday

Well hello, almost a month since my last blog post and the main thing I need to say (if I still have any blog readers left out there) is HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!

We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year cruise and I will blog more on that once I have sorted out all the photographs.

Sian has had a little shake up of Me on Monday and it is now Memorandum Monday where we share something we have done for the first time or something new we have learnt at the weekend.  I will probably a lot of weeks still do a little round up of the weekend and my week ahead as I did enjoy that and also my life isn't that exciting that I get to do many new things LOL!!

Well I have actually learnt something new this weekend - as usual I have post-cruise boat spin.  My body still feels like it is on the ship, I can't stop swaying, I can still feel the throb of the engines beneath my feet, my balance is so much worse than usual, I am really fatigued and I feel like I am standing still and everything is rushing past me, making my head spin.  I am usually like this for at least a month post cruise, sometimes it can last for up to 8 weeks.  I have found out that this is quite common and is called Mal De Debarquement Syndrome.  I am grateful, that for me this is usually a temporary thing, some poor people never recover from it.  I am also grateful that I don't get the nausea that some people have - but I have never suffered with sea sickness, even when it is really rough.  So in the next few weeks if you see me rocking from side to side, I haven't lost the plot - I am just trying to get my land legs back!!

If you get a chance pop along to wave at Sian over at From High in the Sky and tell her about anything new you did at the weekend or something new you have learnt.


  1. Happy New Year!

    ..and now I've learned something new too. That really doesn't sound very nice at all. You must absolutely love your cruises to put up with this at the end (and you certainly look like you are having a good time in that picture!)

  2. I know exactly the feeling you describe, having experienced it myself once. Thankfully it only lasted a day or so. It must drive you crazy for that length of time. Hoping it abates very soon.

  3. Wishing you a happy new year

  4. That's a very long name for something so horrid! Hope you feel back to normal soon and Happy New Year to you and Mr P!

  5. Happy New Year - good luck with land legs! (lol)

  6. Happy New Year - it looks like you rung it in with style.

  7. Just popped over from Sian's blog - I haven't heard of that malady, although it does take me a hour or so to get my land legs back after being on a boat or ship!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
