Oops

Note to self. Do not make travel arrangements when not fully recovered from a long trip.

This morning, I made ferry reservations for the Octocon weekend in Ireland. All went fine, I entered the dates and times, and gave my credit card details. Back came the acknowledgement, and everything was fine.

Then I started looking at details for the weekend after next, when we intend to make a visit to Oslo. Or possibly Helsinki, I haven't decided which yet, but one of those countries we spotted from above earlier this week.

I think it was about then that I realised that the dates were looking familiar. Yes folks, I paid for ferry tickets for the wrong weekend.

Indeed, oops.

ETA: Tomorrow is 'this' weekend', the following weekend is 'next' weekend, and the one after that is 'the weekend after next'. Don't ask me about the logic or lack thereof. I think that the end of the week in which one is is 'this' weekend, and the end of the next week is 'next' weekend.

In Britain, we drive on the left, and overtake on the right. On escalators, we stand on the right, and overtake on the left.
In Japan, they drive on the left, and overtake on the right. On escalators, they stand on the left, and overtake on the right.
