I’m away for a week to lie in the sun. Don’t worry, I’ll be wearing Factor Duffle Coat to protect my lilywhite from the harmful rays.
I’ll be thinking about you all as I’m sipping a tall drink in the shade of some cool little bar, watching the sun go down over the Med.
Ahhhh forgive me for gloating a wee bit. Haven’t been on a holiday in five years and am just gettin’ so excited about having a whole week of nothing more taxing to decide than which sandals to wear to the beach.
My house is being sat. My cat’s being fed. The bins’ll be put out and I’ve cancelled the milk. Not a cloud in the sky.
The only downside is that I’ll miss the results of the local council elections as they happen. Drat! But I’m sure I’ll be able to persuade the local taverna to switch to BBC NI for a nightly round-up.
See you in a fortnight!
Ok, so maths may not be my strong point, but I’m pretty sure I’ve got the figures right on this one - the number of people who regularly complain about how useless our politicians are is definitely greater than the number of people who voted for the losers in last week’s election.
