Absence make the heart grow fonder
Our holiday is arranged.
Herself came in and thrust the phone into my hand.
“Give the man our credit card number” says she.
“Why?” says I.
“I’m booking a holiday in an hotel” says she.
So I gave him the number. He sounded very friendly. But then anyone who has just laid their hands on my card number should sound happy.
“Can I smoke my pipe in my bedroom?” says I. I have my priorities right. Forget about your star ratings and how near it is to the beach or whatever. I’ll stay in a kiphouse if I can smoke in my room.
“As much as you like” says he. “And we have a nice outdoor covered area outside the bar which I hope you will find very comfortable.”
I have stayed there before and it’s a lovely hotel. Very cosy and peaceful. And they have a great chef. It’s very quiet there. The nearest night club is about 50 miles away. There’s a nice cosy bar just down the road too, if I feel like a change of scenery. I don’t drink that much normally, but when I’m on holidays, I let the hair down and usually end up legless. I’ll probably be the noisiest guest in the place.
I can’t tell you where it is, because I know all you people in The West will come mobbing to see me, and the paparazzi might get word too. I mentioned this to the bloke on the phone, but he said I was OK as there were no under-passes nearby.
So I’ll be gone for a few days next week. You’ll have to manage without me.
The only problem now is that the memory is playing up again.
I can’t remember when we have booked for.
Enjoy the hol, you will be very missed.
It will only be for a couple of days. Can you last that long?
Will you bring me back a stick of rock?
Tell Granny I want to hear her side of the holiday on HER blog when she comes back.
I’ll bring you back a whole boulder, Grannymar. Though you’ll have to arrange the lorry to collect it.
I think Herself might be softening a bit towards blogging. She even mentioned in passing that she might try a little podcast!
Next she and my dear self might join ‘The Raging Grannies’!!
As if I didn’t have enough problems….!
Always glad to share my problems about… just like Smarties!
But I bet you keep the blue ones.
Nobody wants my Blues! 😉
