Ach well, the dream was good while it lasted.
Remember that post last week about my doing Sunday cover during the summer in little ol’ Monte Carlo? And remember that I phoned and offered which Sundays I could do, and was told that that was fine and he’d phone back on Thursday with details?
Well, I found out today that I’m not going.
It turns out that when he said “yes those Sundays are fine” what he actually meant was “I’m sorry but those Sundays have already been booked by someone else”.
I’m somewhat disappointed, if the truth be told. But at the same time, oddly, not at all surprised!
So I have now booked holiday time from work at the most expensive time of the year … and have nowhere to go. Yet.
However, it will be good to share my holiday with the lovely Jane; our first proper holiday together in about two years! And that has to be a good thing, no matter where we go.
