I need some help with some wording on a card.
(background). My best friend and I were going to Fiji next year (her first time o/s) unfortunately it was a little out of her price range.
She decided to book a cruise instead, which I was totally ok about but not really convinced about going.
After thinking about it I decided to book it ( she hasn't stop begging me ...lol)
I am yet to tell her...today is the last day I'll see her till early jan. We decided on no Xmas presents so I bought a card and want to tell her in the card that we are coming on the cruise.
So am after some inspiration as to what to write on the card...
Anyone witty this early in the morning....

No - she needs to know for planning.

How about:

Merry Christmas dear friend,
Hope it's all that you dream
And the New Year that follows
Be fun and a scream

I am sorry our travels
Did not happen as dreamt
May the cruise be a blast
And worth all that you've spent

One more season's greeting
To you and your plans
We've decided to join you
Farewelling dry land!

You really did not think
I would let you run
Without me beside you
Enjoying the fun?

Merry Christmas
Bon Voyage Us!
