Jaqui's Daily Blog

Staircases, Food and Piña Coladas

When making our way down to dinner in our Holiday Hotel, we take the stairs. Or, rather, we sweep down a rather grand, marble, spiralling staircase.

 

  We could descend, hand in hand, with a flourish of feathers and nifty footsteps, I tell Mr B - like Anton du Bec and Fiona Fullerton on Strictly Come Dancing. You will note I am too humble to suggest I might resemble Ally Wotsername or the divine Sophie Ellis Baxter. I once met her mum, the lovely Janet Ellis, on a beach in Littlehampton where she and Keith Chegwin we're trying to build the biggest sandcastle in a TV competition. I remember she was very , very sweet though I can't remember how she fared in the sandcastle stakes.

 

It's easy to eat healthily in our hotel. They serve up lots of salads and grilled meat and fresh fruit. My ever-encouraging, often-despairing Weightwatchers Leader would be pleased. I mention this because I know she reads the blog and she may be checking up on me.

 

Of course, then there are the drinks. I am sticking to Piña Coladas which, as everyone knows, are made of pineapples. And pineapples, like that Norwegian song in the Eurovision Song Contest, score "Nil Points". Or so I am telling myself.

 

Daily Cribbage Competition result:

 

Mr B - 2; Me - 1

 

Running total: Mr B -4; Me - 1

 

verdict: Need to do better

Will you be OK for the op? If you care for someone like you do, there isn't anyone to care for you. So glad that Kay and Louise were around that day.
