We've all had one of those holidays

Many moons ago when I was young and single, I went on holiday with one of my girl friends to Tenerife.

Fortunately, the disastrous first day didn't carry on through the whole holiday and was just a 24-hour blip.  Thank God!

What has been seen can not be unseen

On arriving at our hotel room, we opened all the patio doors to try and get a little breeze into the stiflingly hot room.

As I was opening the doors, Celia knocked over a glass and it smashed onto the tiled floor (and this was before we'd had a drink!).

Now, for reasons unbeknown to me, we both stepped out front to see if the cleaning lady, who we'd seen on our way in, had a dustpan and brush that we could borrow.  But as we stepped out (barefoot) the door slammed shut behind us!

Not wanting to look like we were a couple of bumbling idiots unable to stay in an apartment by ourselves for longer than 30 minutes before a mishap..... we decided to save face and just climb back on to our balcony.  After all, we were round the back and on top of a row of shops.  All we had to do was just run along the roof of the shops and hop back into our balcony.

Well, that was the plan.....

We roughly knew, no, we thought we knew EXACTLY which balcony was ours so we hopped over the wall and ran along the roof of the shops.  We jumped back over the wall of the balcony to our apartment only to find we had misjudged the rooms by one.

Standing on our neighbour's baloney looking horrified, and starring back at us just as mortified were our shocked, elderly neighbours - stark naked!!

I may never get that image out of my head.

Moral of the story:  Never worry about saving face!  Nothing is worse than staring at your neighbour's wrinkly private bits.

Happy Holidays everyone
