Hello, yes I’m back!
Bet you thought, this Dad has given up writing because he’s drowned under a pile of dirty nappies?
Well, actually no, changing nappies is not my job, and the wife empties the nappy bin. I’ve been a little tardy due to the fact I’ve , well we’ve, been in Portugal! Not for the whole three weeks, my computer broke for one week, but two weeks at least, we have been lazing on the continent! Yes I know we said that abroad was out of the question, but it was such a great deal we had to grab it!
Wow, holidays are great for forgetting work and other issues that normally cloud my brain.
The wife seems to have been on a different holiday to me however! Apparently they are not relaxing anymore with a baby! I honestly don’t see it though, my son has caused me no problems what-so-ever, I still swam everyday and did a little sightseeing!
Apparently, babies need to keep to a similar routine even on holiday. They don’t know that on holiday you don’t wake up for breakfast until at least 10am. They don’t realise that daytime naps become annoying on holiday when you would rather be in the pool, and they certainly haven’t learnt that crying is a no no during the sun bathing periods of 11 to 3! (Again these points are of my wife’s opinion, oh, through gritted teeth)
I’m not saying I didn’t push the pram a bit. But, I did dose a lot on the beach, waking up a number of times to find the wife and my son had gone back to the villa to have a nap. Seriously, I need to suggest she goes to bed earlier if she needs so many sleeps during the day!!
Anyway, I’ve come back with a lovely tan. Brown as a berry someone at work said to me! You can see the smug smile, can’t you?
For some reason though, the wife seems to be whiter than when we first left Luton. I did question this and I may as well have said she was fat, the response I received! Something about, holidays not being a holiday for her and nothing changing and something else I couldn’t quite make out as I beat a hasty retreat!
Anyway I’m back on the writing scene, refreshed, relaxed and ready to go back to the office for some more 9 to 5 action. As I said to my wife, it’s ok for her, she’s on a year long holiday!
Better go, the headache seems to be getting worse. Frying pans hurt you know!!
