I think I will start looking for something new when I get back from hols .
Later, when I was a teenager, I'd tag along with some English schoolfriends going on summer hols with their families to the Lake District, or Wales, or even as far afield as the Dordogne.
Here's the first of too many photos from our Christmas hols in Texas.
That's it then, my first proper day back from the hols and despite having the best part of a month to chill out it's taken approximately 12 hours to push the stress levels back to where they were way back then.
It's our annual summer hols , which we always have at this time.
Every time we went to Italy for our hols , we always went armed with the latest Asterix adventures and even resorted to buying Italian editions of new books if we finished all ours while away.
Day 9 of the hols saw us in the fine city of Bradford.

I expect that when I come back from my hols half the plants will be dead but the brambles will be looking as healthy as ever.
That's the thing about going away; one doesn't want to dirty the clothes set aside for the hols and have to wash stuff when one's away.
