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
