Have you missed me ?

I am back from my first 3 generation holiday ever. No one fell out, no one was cross, there may have been a few mutterings under breaths but everyone tried very hard to keep the peace.

On Friday I was awake for 24 hours (I know, me that loves her bed, I can hardly believe it myself) I flew back into Manchester then drove back to chez auntiegwen before shooting off again to deepest darkest Essex and then into London to see The Manics courtesy of my lovely, lovely friend NB. Click on him for the review of the gig, he didn't mention the fight though, middle aged men behaving badly. The Manics were awesome though and I was slightly sad the didn't sing my favourite song but there's always next time.



So I'm back to real life. My washing machine engineer didn't turn up today. My year 12's were still my year 12's and the smile of the day was the following conversation with a student

Year 12 - Miss you look different
Me - It'll be the suntan
Year 12 - No, that's not it. Have you had your hair cut ?
Me - Nope
Year 12 - Have you dyed it ?
Me - Nope

Year 12 student in triumphant tones

Miss, I know what it is, you've had a boob job, they look well bigger.

Nice to see you Auntie, yes it has been nice here, but it is certainly not the same as a holiday, I have still done all the domestics!

Bloody right, we missed you! Started looking in the obituaries after a bit. Glad you're back and alive!

Penelope said...

I missed you heaps!!! I'm glad you didn't kill each other. I was rather amazed when we survived ours last year despite a little fear and trepidation ;o) xxx

lisaq said...

Haha...who knew holiday was a euphemism for boob job? Missed you girl!

Working Mum said...

So that's what the 'holiday' was for, was it? Nudge, nudge.

Nota Bene said...

Youknow I think I'm rubbish at writing things up...I also forgot to mention that you were so lost that you had to call ten minutes away from here and talk you in; you were so excited at seeing us that you swerved across the road narrowly avoiding widespread death and destruction. Or wasn't I supposed to mention that.

That Girl said...

Yay.. you're back... glad you had a great time! Bless the student! Pray tell what was your answer?!

Lolly - I love The Manics and truly they were brill. As for the students, that's my nice year 12's not to be mixed up with my bloody year 12's (the btec lot)

Frankie - I still do all the domestics, I just get to do them in the sunshine !

Shirley - how's the heat treating you ? I hear it's ferocious over there

Penelope - was good, I won't have my parents for ever, so trying to not be so anal and possessive about my routine !!!! xxx

Mud - my knockers are defying all logic ! evergrowing

Dutchy - trust me it would be a reduction I'd be going for !!!!

Lisa - I've got some cleavage to spare, thinking of selling it on ebay

WM - I can think of a few things I'd spend the money on first !

NB - no, no feel free to name and shame me in print any time, that's what friends are for. You know that's the only time in 6 months you've failed to mention KoL ? slipping up ...

That Girl - my boobs are defying any logic, they arrive in rooms before me at the moment, very very strange

you get to go to some pretty cool concerts! hope your time away recharged your batteries,. you'll need it for all that hand washing...

Shirley said...

Well, heat is what we typically expect this time of year in California. Not sure it's worse than any other year. Maybe just more whiners in the media; dunno.

auntiegwen said...

Sue - you should see the pile of washing I've got, frightening !

Shirley - it was one of your beautiful daughters that told me !!

Oh, I laughed out loud - it is always fun catching up with you. Was that the purpose of your holiday? (I can see that's not an original thought!) M xx
