Well things didn't go according to plan. I got sick with a bad dose of the flu and on arrival Sunday afternoon i was packed straight into bed (Strike 2). A very nice bed it was but it was not what i had in mind.
Yes, the location was lovely. No, i hadn't won Tatts, my friend's brother is a member of the time-share resort chain and when they have vacancies in the off-season they offer them for huge discounts to members and their guests. I only paid $40 per night for a huge two bedroom apartment. In reception i heard someone making a public booking for a one bedroom apartment at $395 a night. Really!!! Truly!! Gulp! So if there is any consolation it was that i hadn't paid a fortune. Still...
Of course there was a tennis court, a day spa, indoor pool (given that its winter and bitterly cold), bistro for evening meals, buffet breakfast and a beautiful beach across the road for all to enjoy, EXCEPT ME! See, I'm sulking!. I made my way through flu tabs and tissues for several days until on Wednesday, fever running hot, we came home early but that is not where my disappointment ends. I left my Fitbit on the sink in the bathroom and magically it cannot be found (Strike 3). Since i cant see myself funding a replacement then i guess i am out of the club.
So, as you would guess, i was too sick to go and Glenda went without me.
OK, i get the picture, I'M OUT!!!!
Of course, at work it's all a bit of a laugh. Something always goes wrong when i have a holiday. So, its been decided that i'm much better off staying at work. Better luck next time.
Oh, for those who actually care, i went back to work Tuesday and i am feeling much better, thank you! I might even consider a Flu Shot next year.
