I eventually got through to Condor ferries, the next available seat was Thursday so I have a wait for a couple of days, not sure what to do as was not expecting to be here. I think I will try to get a bit ahead with my book reviews.  The return journey was available so all good.  I changed my stop over in Poole with no problems and the lady was born in Folkestone so I am sure we will have a good chat Wednesday night when I stay in Poole.  I have not had a reply from the lady in Jersey so I have fingers crossed that she can accommodate these changes or I will be sleeping in the car!
As I booked through Direct ferries they will hopefully give me a refund as these tickets are a lot cheaper but I won’t hold my breath as I am sure there will be some clauses that stop me having my money back.
I also have to change the travel insurance in the morning, hope that does not include anymore dramas.  At least I have two days to chill as everything is packed ready to go.

The seats are like plane travel, I guess the time will go quick and it will be breakfast time so coffee and croissant will be much appreciated.  It’s a relatively new boat so that’s good. I had a quick look at the duty-free and the champagne and Prosecco looks a very nice price.
I am feeling a bit more positive now, I am hoping I can get rid of this chest,throat viral infection before I go and that would make me a very happy Karen.  Really looking forward to going back to the places I went as a child and doing some research for a story to be set in Jersey.
Happy Sunday everyone x

    As someone who has experience of dealing with Direct Ferry tickets (ex P&O) , you will probably find that the ticket is not transferable, non changeable and non refundable and Condor won’t be able to amend a Direct Ferry ticket. Although its slightly dearer to book direct with the ferry operator (sometimes only a couple of quid) , you will find them more accommodating, and they can change tickets booked in their system.

      Thank goodness Condor did change the ticket for me. Not heard from direct yet so will ring them in the morning. Xx
