Christmas Come Early!!

I've got an early Christmas pressie, but I can't unwrap it till June!! Puzzled?
Well myself and Carrie Anne have booked a week long holiday, a fibre retreat to be honest! A FIBRE RETREAT, Whooohoooo!!!!!!!
Its at the beginning of June and to get there, we have to have a one and a half hour flight(yes Carrie Anne is going to fly!!!). This is followed by a two hour ferry trip! The destination?
FAIR ISLE!!!!!!!
I am so excited!! We are going to learn all the skills to prepare, dye , spin and ply wool! And apparently we are there at shearing time and we could learn an extra skill!!!
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful, peaceful and relaxed Christmas, with lots of time for knitting!!!
