Toodle pip

You’ll be relieved to hear that the Interweb will be spared my usual rambling nonsense for a while, as we’re off on holiday. It’s been a bit of a rush to get up to date after being rather ill with the ‘flu just over a week ago, so sorry for the  rather quick postings in the forum these past few days. I’m literally only just shaking the last vestiges of the ‘flu now in fact, which is way longer than I’m used to being under the weather for. I’m wondering whether there’s a Guinness record for the amount of material expelled from one’s sinuses in the space of 2 weeks, because I think I’m in with a fighting chance.

It was a bit hairy with our holiday arrangements too, the travel company didn’t dispatch our tickets until less than a week before we go, then proceeded to send them by second-class post, the total skinflints - given that there’s an extra day on most post because we’re across the Channel, it was cutting it really damn tight. Way to raise our blood pressure, you malodorous git of a company. Needless to say we won’t be using them again, I just hope it isn’t an indication of their usual powers of organisation for when we actually get there.

It’ll be good to have a break, we haven’t been on a ‘proper’ holiday for a couple of years due to other commitments (mostly work and business trips). My current project tasks are wrapped up, I’ve just gotta pack my arm-bands and stripey Victorian swimming cossie, and I’ll be ready to go. Now, where’s my boater? 😉
