Happy Hollibobs πŸ˜ƒ

I’m now on my Hollibobs – a whole week off from work πŸ˜ƒ A whole week off to do all those shitty jobs you don’t have time to do normally!

I went shopping for Arowyn’s birthday this morning and the store assistant asked if I was interested in buying some oven cleaner they were promoting 😳 How the fuck did she know?????? Β Of course I laughed and laughed and snorted my “no thanks!” πŸ˜ƒ

We are hoping to go to the seaside for a few days next week. Β After the last two years of me being in charge of booking us “cheap” mini breaks – Jeff has forbidden me to book anything again 😜

Last year I booked us into Pontins Holiday Camp. Β I hadn’t been to a holiday camp since I was a child and I’m pretty sure we stayed in exactly the same chalet, the same, undated, undecorated, grubby chalet. Β We had to sleep with one leg on the floor to stop the faux leather pull out bed from wobbling. Β The club-house was like a scene from the Jeremy Kyle show – infact we nearly had to appear on the Jeremy Kyle Show on our return as Jeff threatened to leave me for putting him through such trauma 😜 I personally thought it was great fun and the icing on the cake was the pool being closed – due to a child having a poo in it! Β Now I know this is what happens I intend to poo in every pool I go to so I don’t have to take the girls swimming! πŸ˜ƒ

The year before that was a cheap hotel in Bournemouth. Β Anyone remember Faulty Towers? Β An overflowing shower, a broken toilet seat and us in the middle of a group of rowdy young men enjoying a Stag Do – actually I rather enjoyed that bit! 😜

Anyway Jeff is in charge of sorting out our holiday – he hasn’t actually booked anywhere yet – so we’re probably going to be sleeping in the car! 😳

Anyway happy Hollibobs to me – can’t wait! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
