    Cool My Christmas holiday starts here...

    My Missus has been married to a contractor (me, duh!) for long enough to know how there's ups and there's downs.

    So in the spring she not only booked us on a cruise (which was awesome) but booked us an Xmas holiday.

    She had a suspicion we'd be skint by Xmas (she ought to be running the economy, not the politicians) and planned accordingly.

    We're off shortly to Minehead. Butlins. For a week.

    No cooking, no washing up, no relatives.

    And a telly (we don't have one at home).

    Sunshine and lollipops ... sorted!

    Anyone else going away for Xmas?

    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    Enjoy Butlins RC!

    Minehead can be a bit nippy at this time of year!

    We're off to Centre Parcs for a couple of days between Christmas and New Year, the boys (2, 5 and 40+ (me!)) are really looking forward to it!
