The Closest Thing to Heaven...

...Cor blimey and thrice! I have finally sussed out how to do a bloggy thing on my tablet! Whether this will actually post is another question but I shall waffle on a but and see what happens.  If you don't get to read said waffle, I am still a dunderhead and haven't really sussed it at all 😉 If you do, however, I am a teckernical genius!

So here we are in Tunisia. A place I've never really fancied because I always had a preconception it'd be dirty or something... actually, it is a bit dirty out side of the hotel complex, mainly dusty... I'll let them off tho as it is so hot here, I wouldn't want to be pushing a broom down the street either!

The hotel is magnificent! I highly recommend it; couples only, all inclusive, friendly staff and the food... ohlalaaa, the food! If you can't go an hour and a half without eating this is the place to stay. If, like me, your relationship with food is somewhat fraught, this is the place to stay too! So much choice, all piping hot or nicely chilled,  depending on what it is... no one wants hot lettuce do they *teehee*  Yesterday was Day 1 of our holibobs, we did the obligatory "welcome meeting" which was actually pleasant and we learnt lots of stuff... then we went for a mooch to suss out where everything is and such like. We soon sussed out that actually, you could eat from dawn til dusk if you wanted... so I think I shall be exercising a little self control... otherwise I will be coming home with, um, excess flabbage!

Last night, after we'd eaten dinner... a Mexican night in the restaurant but no worry if you don't like Mexican food, there was plenty else to choose from, we repaired to the Courtyard where entertainment was laid on. A really good singer with a guitar and... acrobats! Those blokes were nutters... but incredibly good! Anyway, being as I'm on me holibobs I decided a Pina Colada was the drink of choice! Cor! Blimey! Strong! So I had a second one to make sure it was that strong... yup... strong!  Because of the strength of said cocktails, I decided to try a white rhum *their own brand Bacardi* and see if that was any weaker. Um. Nope. *hic*  After the acrobats had done their acrobatics, Mr Singing With A Guitar came back on and struck up Mustang Sally. Around the same time we decided to repair to our room which needs a lift to get there,  especially after several large drinkypoos. As we were waiting for the lift to arrive it got to the chorus bit of Mustang Sally. Of course it would've been impossible for me now to sing "ride, Sally ride"... well everyone would've done it right? What I'd not realised was there was a couple standing behind us also waiting for the lift. Oops... well, it was then only natural that I tell them "I only sang out of tune because you'd be jealous of my angelic voice if I sang properly"  Mrs I'm Sucking A Lemon wasn't impressed at all... so today I'm keeping me nut daaarn, don't want to bump into them again lol

I shall away now... think there may be some food on offer somewhere and it'd be rude not to try it 😉  Thanks for looking... have a goodly day!  TTFN
