Hooray! Hooray! I've booked a holiday! After working far too damn hard by far I've booked myself a last minute holiday next week in the Greek island of Zante. Apparently it's an Ionian island, which reminds me of my favourite Physics joke, where an atom goes to the Doctor:
"Doctor, I've lost my electron."
"Are you sure?"
"Yes, I'm positive"
Anyhoo, I'm even more chuffed with the holiday on account of the fact that it only cost £130. Which is a total bargain, when you consider that I'm going on my own. It's so irritating, having to pay single supplements when you go somewhere on your own.
It's funny. Last year I went to Ibiza on my own and it was absolutely amazing. There's something incredibly liberating about not having to worry about anyone or anything else. It was without a doubt the best holiday I've ever had.
But the looks that I would get from from people when I told them I was on my own... It was like I had two heads. And when I told them I did actually HAVE friends at home but had CHOSEN to go on my own... And that I was really enjoying it... Some people actually got offended by that. Crazy. As if I'd done it deliberately to get at them. It's amazing what some people do when faced with their own insecurities.
And as an added bonus... I booked a trip to the Turks & Caicos Islands today to go visit my friend Anna! Double hooray! And that was a bit of a bargain too... 5,000 airmiles and £185. I'm off in January. I can't wait, I've missed her like mad, there's been a big Anna-shaped hole in my life since May.
So all in all, life is looking pretty sunny today. But hopefully nowhere near as sunny as it's going to look next week.
