It doesn't feel like I've been away, the last week off work flew by! As I mentioned in my last blog, it was a 'staycation!' – I wonder where that term originated? I only heard of it a year or two ago. I say staycation, I did pop down to see Mum and Dad on the Isle of Wight. Dad greeted me with the most wonderful roast lamb and roasted vegetables followed by a delicious homemade fruit salad (I had bowl after bowl… and then another bowl!!)
Whilst tucking into my feast Dad said to me… "I hope you don't mind but I used your shower gel which you left here from your stay at Christmas". I looked at Dad, my expression mildly puzzled, as I knew I hadn't left any, maybe it was my brother-in-law's? Dad carried on, "I'll be honest Charlie, it smells good but it doesn't foam very well…" I looked up at Dad while tucking into another slice of lamb. Dad reached into a cupboard and lifted out the shower gel he'd been using and passed it to me.
"This is yours, isn't it Charlie?" Dad said. I looked at Dad and replied, "You've showered with this?" He just nodded and now it was Dad's turn to look puzzled as I fell about laughing. "What's so funny?" Dad said. After a great deal more laughter I eventually calmed down and told Dad that he'd been showering with hair gel… hence why it didn't foam or lather! It was a speedy visit to the Isle of Wight but a very enjoyable and memorable one!
Looking ahead to next week, I have some wonderful shows ahead of me. Including South Western Silver this Monday 27th at 9pm and then Charlie Bears at 11pm… can't wait. The next day on Tuesday 28th I'm really looking forward to Ingersoll watches at 7pm as well. Hope you can join me. Take care and have a good weekend.
P.s… Always worth reading and re-reading the label x
