I need a break.
Even those of us who have no jobs to go to still need a break from time to time.
I won't say I need to break the monotony as life here is anything but monotonous. Monotony only really exists in the world of offices and commuting.
What I need is just a bit of a change of scenery.
I booked a wee holiday yesterday. Nothing fancy, just a week or two of doing absolutely nothing, except maybe a bit of daydreaming, reading, looking at the view, walking, supping a pint or ten and generally relaxing.
Where am I going you ask? Same place as last year I reply. We don't often repeat holiday destinations as we like to see different things but our venue is so fucking relaxing that it's out of this world. Well, it's not actually out of this world, but move it a few feet south and it would be.
You can decide for yourselves which place I'll be staying in. It's one of these. I'll even throw in a clue – it has a roof, which is more than can be said of one or two disasters we booked in the past.
Normally we go in the first two weeks of June which is Leaving Cert weather [i.e. usually hot]. This year we have had to push it back a bit as Herself has a post operative checkup in the first week. I only hope the weather lingers on a bit as it did last year.
I'll be around for a few days yet, so don't panic. I have no idea what's going to happen with this site though, as once again I will be in an Interweb-free zone.
Hopefully, this time two weeks I'll be sitting watching the world go by with a can of stout in one hand and a book in the other. Or maybe I'll be sitting in a coffee shop somewhere? Or maybe a pub? Or maybe if the weather turns foul I'll be sitting by a turf fire with my can and my book? You can never tell with Irish weather.
One thing I won't be doing is giving a damn about the Interwebs, politics, elections or any other of the shite that flies around these days.
