After getting back from ten days in the Caribbean, reality has well and truly set back in again. The usual things, annoying news stories, gas and leccy bill waiting for us and only today our water bill. Add to that the wife’s car needs a service, the spring in my step I had from my holiday has well and truly gone.
The weather is ‘apparently’ getting better but I am yet to see that, I just think the weather men /women plain out lie just to try an appease the masses. Anyway it’s not freezing cold anymore so the heating hasn’t been on, so saving some energy there, I also think it’s time to get rid of the wife’s car, once it’s had its service, it really is a waste to have two cars when we could manage with one. I think whilst I was away I had some sort of epiphany or that I just want to save as much money as possible to go on holiday!
Anyway Barbados was fantastic, gorgeous sunshine every day, no rain and barely any wind. Although our hotel wasn’t the Sandy Lane hotel, for me it was pretty luxurious and we didn’t want for anything. We could get up leisurely on a morning head down for a satisfying buffet breakfast before wandering the short distance to the beach and the beautiful turquoise warm ocean. It was magical and I know I’m sounding totally gay but I loved it.
I’m made for relaxing and taking it easy and defiantly pre-programmed for sunshine and hot temperatures. The staff at the hotel completed our stay, they couldn’t do enough for you, nothing was any trouble and they were so friendly, such a nice experience. We will defiantly go back to the Caribbean again, maybe Mexico or Dominican Republic, but not for a couple of years as it can be pretty pricy.
Anyway for a short beak this summer, my dad is heading to Benidorm (his budget for holidays isn’t as big as mine) for a week so as he doesn’t live here, I thought it would be nice to join him for a few days. I have got a flight and booked into the same hotel as him the Cabana Hotel. I will be there four days over the weekend and will be able to relax with him there. To be fair it’s probably better than him spending money to come to the UK, it will feel like a proper holiday and it will be more affordable. Benidorm is pretty cheap, although it’s not really my kind of holiday place, not comparing it to Barbados, but one thing for sure I will be able to enjoy my beer and it’s always fun getting my dad drunk!
