I'll never go on a holiday without access to news again.
Ted, that's one of the joys of a holiday. Mind you, at our idylic caravan site in the 'heart of rural Northumberland, we can't get mobile telephone reception ....peaceful, you bet your sweet bippy it is, just the place to go to try and get my blood pressure down. Well, that's the idea anyway. The weekend before last they hired the adj field out for a rave! Boom,Boom,Boom till four in the morning ....still it's a one off...is n't it? and this weekend the silence was broken with the sound of police cars and an ambulance. Apparently there had been a 'domestic' and some sweet young thing had stabbed her beau in the neck ....alledgedly ...he said he had done it himself....how gallant.
On the way home we stopped to buy the local Sunday paper only to see splashed across the front page, 'news' about a car crash involving one of my son's friends who had four passengers in with him at the time. It was 'big' news because his friend is a footballer. Thankfully no one was injured.
When we eventually managed to get mobile reception to ring him, he explained that everything was alright and he was n't one of them in the car ...... oh and by the way "I've just ordered a pizza, can you pick it up for me on the way home!"
No news is good news......roll on next weekend.
