It’s tough work being a Vandal, so every now and then I need a little break. This time it will be an intercontinental, overseas, abroad, change of hemisphere type of flying break for a few weeks as I take some time off to catch up with family and friends back in Australia. Of course there are plans afoot for beer, wine and peanuts aplenty during my time back home, so I certainly won’t die of starvation or dehydration.
There are also plans that involve my grandchildren, so I have been saving my pennies for a while now, as they can be quite expensive to go shopping with. You know, ice cream, chocolates, milkshakes, sweets and potato chips along with the odd eye catching toy thrown in for good measure – every day! As they are young fellas, I’ve been in training for a little while so I don’t throw my shoulder out of place the very first time I throw a cricket ball at them to promptly hit over the garden fence.
And no, I haven’t forgotten to pack my sunscreen and a hat. After so long in Switzerland I’m probably highly allergic to sun by now, so I’ll be careful. The only thing I’m probably not looking forward to is insects. I’ve become so accustomed to living in an insect free country.
Anyway, see you all in a few weeks and in the mean time you can of course keep chatting amongst yourselves via my blog’s comments as you always do, and I might just pop my head in on the odd occasion if my iPhone is charged up. Oh yes, that just reminded me. I need to buy an electrical adapter.
So what will you do while I’m gone, other than cry in your coffee?
