Rid

The Silver Vixen and the Gorse Fox are doing a little jig. Nothing too strenuous, but there are times when joy overtakes the spirit.

It may be a bit prosaic, but the phone has just rung and we have received confirmation that we have finally rid ourselves of the albatross that was known as "our Timeshare". Don't get us wrong. For years it was a welcome bolt-hole and we loved the location (in Tenerife)... but as the annual maintenance fees soared and our travel plans looked farther afield to visit Cousteau-cub or Beloved Aunt, the relevance of the timeshare waned. It was time to get rid of it. We started the process in January and it has cost us some money, but it is finally gone. The money will be recouped in about 3 years of not paying maintenance (even at the current rates).

Resumes jig.
