Lunedi Lunacy

Much of this past weekend was taken up planning a bit of a vacation in September. The original plans had included a 14 day cruise on Norwegian from Southampton to the Fjords of Norway and a little jaunt around Iceland. However a few things put me off about Norwegian Cruise Line. After I had shown a bit of interest in the cruise I received three phone calls from their rep and six – count them six – emails within four days. When I finally made a tentative booking with deposit I received an email every day reminding of when the final payment was due. That and some of the reviews had me reconsidering.

So further investigating was done and we are now on a 7 days cruise with Holland America out of Amsterdam – only to Norway but with more forays into the Fjords that dot the coast. Iceland is not on the itinerary for the cruise but plans are being made to make a stopover in Reykjavik on the way over.

Which leads me to this little bit of lunacy for a Monday morning. Cissie Braithwaite (Roy Barraclough) and Ada Shuttlebottom (Les Dawson) are planning a holiday.

One of the things that mark these two “ladies of a certain age” as Lancashire lasses is the mouthing of words (or “mee-mawing”). It was a habit of mill workers trying to communicate over the tremendous racket of the looms, and it then worked its way into daily life for delicate subjects such as discussions of the “Kama Sutra”. And what Bert wants Ada to do … well you can just imagine.

May 27th is listed as Sun Screen Day which would be all well and good if we had some bloody sun!
