Ahhh - Sunday Bliss

Ahhh - Sunday ..... one of the most blissful days of the week! I must admit my Sunday's are totally different now to anything I've ever known, but oh how I do love them. I love working on the bar on Sunday's and just making sure our guests are getting excellent customer service - and then its also the afternoon for paperwork and seeing what we've made AND spent!!

Today started a little bit differently though as I had a lay in - no church today. The service today up at church is a sung eulogy and it might as well be Swahili for all I understand it - it doesn't float my boat so I don't go, I'll make sure I have a quiet word with Him before the day's out though to make up for it.

We're recovered from our fabulous 2 days break away - again, just going away for a couple of days takes a fair amount of planning so thank you Glo for all your help in looking after the 'Vic' so we could go and have a bit of fun. Talking of which only a couple of weeks before I jet off on my own to our flat in Spain - well, technically it's SOH's but working on the principle thats what his is mine and vice versa etc etc, lol.......... its become ours!! Anyway - I digress, yes, I'm off to the land of sun and sangria for 7 whole nights in just a couple of weeks!

I've booked in to The Rock Hotel in Gibraltar a fabulous old colonial style hotel for 2 nights of luxury. I have a lot of memories of Gibraltar over a great number of years holidaying there - some good, some great and some not so good, so it's a great opportunity to visit friends, re-live some memories and put others away for ever. I do love Gibraltar on the whole, it's people are fabulous - and I haven't been for about 5 years now - so it'll be interesting to see how it's changed - if at all. My plans include; visiting the Apes on the Rock and staying for as long as I want, going to the Casino next door to the hotel (adjoined by a fabulous garden walk) late at night like a grown up, walking down the Main Street and drinking coffee in Saccarello - a fabulous coffee shop with smells that make your mouth water. Then whatever else I fancy and as the fancy takes me........

I have to get there by bus from Fuengirola - that's a first and should be interesting...... well I got myself around Marrakesh last year on my own so hopefully the South Coast of Spain will be a doddle!?! Then its back to our flat for 4 days and nights doing nothing but sleeping, reading and catching the rays! Oh yes, and listening to my new iPod. Talking of which I'm the proud owner of a pretty little purple iPod Nano - oh it is lovely...............and I managed to download it from the computer and load music, buy music - blimey there'll be no stopping me now!!

Workwise - visitors are plentiful and a lot of them talking about staying the whole week before we get the schools break up for half term - then the fun will begin all over again! Chickens - well, they're delivering 6 - 8 eggs a day, and we have home cooked gammon, chips and our own free range eggs on the menu - at the moment supply can't meet demand so come on girls.......
