We have been very fortunate this year in that we have all been away on several wonderful holidays/weekends, either through work (Darrell to Rome and I to the Czech Republic with the young ladies) or on our beloved Sun £9.50 holidays, but I decided that all three of us needed to go away together, something we’ve never done before ……
With this in mind, I went online several weeks ago and booked Cockle Cottage in Brixham, because Sky Atlantic’s Fish Town has become our digital televisual programme of choice on a Thursday night of late - I didn’t tell Darrell and Nigel exactly when we would be going, as I didn’t think my nerves could have stood up to the build up of pent up excitement, but, preparing our message in a bottle yesterday should have been enough to tell them our holiday was indeed imminent! So TODAY is the DAY and first thing this morning I told them to pack and get ready as we were finally Cockle Cottage bound.
Well, you can imagine the excitement that ensued …. there were buckets and spades akimbo, message in a bottle safely packed and piggy banks raided for spending money and clotted cream ice creams.
But it really didn’t take that long … and I now realise that they had pre-empted my announcement and had already started secretly packing as soon as I said I had booked our holiday, what are they like?
……………. anyway with three suitcases packed …… it’s wagons roll ……. look out Brixham here we come!
