Customer: excuse me, how much is this? *holds up a box of something*
Me: that's £35.00 madam/sir/fuckwit.
Customer: thirty-five pounds?
So, I've decided that I'm no longer going to trade in pounds. On Saturday, my currency of choice was Japanese Yen. I'm particularly looking forward to my return, when I'll be trading in Italian Lira. Can you think of any innovative currency, I might like to try?
It is with great relief that I say to you - I'm on holiday! I think I'm running the risk of actually saying this stuff, if I didn't have a break. Currently, I'm oop North with my Viking and Boy and we'll be bothering his parents later today (Viking's not Boy's). I have been promised Whitby fish and chips, a walk around Robin Hood Bay and Ravenscar. I put my foot down with a firm hand and said - no camping if it's wet - which apparently makes me the biggest whimp ever. I don't care, I've done camping cold and damp before, I don't need a repeat of the experience.It's taking awhile for my shoulders to drop away from my ears and I am trying to relax. I still feel tense and snappy, but my Viking and Boy are being very patient with me. I must say, just getting out of Norwich and being taken away from my responsibilities has eased things.
Anyway, I'm not sure how much internet access I'll have while I'm in the wilds of the Lakes. Mind you, it's not like I've been posting regularly recently.
