Misery and despond on holiday

Well, it’s that time of the year when I again leave you in the very capable hands of my co-writer as Katie and I go on our holidays.

As with every year, make sure you’re all on your best behaviour for Alison and when I come back I expect the place to be clean and tidy and no evidence of wild parties having taken place. Make sure to walk Nugent regularly and don’t forget that Neville has an appointment with the vet to have his claws clipped next week.

See you in a fortnight and try not to break the server while I’m away!

    I haven’t gone *quite* yet! So you’ll have wait touch longer to talk about me behind my back πŸ˜€

    I’m actually going to be monitoring what everyone says *even more* closely than usual now!

    Be careful @Tim, your ego will either inflate to the size that you can’t fit it into your suitcase, or deflate to the point where you can’t even find it to pack. Either way, I don’t think this will end well πŸ˜‰

    @Alison – I think the latter, but given my ego is already the size of Jupiter then a little deflation is a probably a good thing πŸ˜‰

    Have a gay old time, but don’t do anything I wouldn’t do! Drowning in days of drunken debauchery is not allowed! πŸ˜†

    By drinking big buckets* of beer,
    Tim ends up as round as a sphere…
    His buoyant, fat coat
    Will keep him afloat,
    No matter he drops off the pier.

    *and he’s got a spade to paddle with, so fear not, @teloz πŸ™‚

    Do we really have to behave ? The idea of a wild party is extremely appealing – we can have disgustingly huge quantities of alcohol and blame any subsequent mis-behaviour on the failure of the venue to provide enough fruit pastilles !
