Cooo eee I'm back!!

What a great time was had by all on our holiday after the Comedy of Errors that started it and finished it LOL!!

I'll download some pics soon of the great times.

Comedy of Errors - well what can I say about them, good job we have a great sense of humour!!

Here is the list.

Departing day - 2 out of the 3 check in desks at Newcastle airport didn't work, so check in took forever - it was a full plane too. Plane was like a cattle market - we didn't get allocated seats for some reason (in fact NO-ONE) got them, so our party of 6 became 1 here, 1 there - your get the picture!!
Arrival at resort - J and Mark went to check us in at the apartment- they could only find a booking for us for 1 week not 2 weeks - Yaarrgh! J and Mark stood their ground and it was eventually found for the 2 week! Nephew 1 hadn't packed any swimming gear!!
Night 1 - I started feeling very nauseated followed by Mark, then Dawn then J we all then started with the runs and sickness - mine of course has to last longer than everyone else and I had it for 4 days - mild food poisoning we reckoned from the food off the plane we reckoned (Not I hasten to add substantiated by any doctor - just a good guess) - weight loss 7lbs for me - yipppeeee!
Day 2 - Factor P20 on lying in the sun, wind very strong and very warm - burnt my back and bum!!! OOOO I can't sit properly!! (I never burn usually)
Day 3 - Gets out of bed in the morning back goes crack - can't move a muscle, still stuggling with being sick, toilet so low its a struggle LOL!! - Are you seeing a very unpretty picture here LOL!!
Day 4 - Back still a problem so can't lie in the sun still as sunbeds too low plus still a bit sunburnt, spent the day near to the loo in the apartment sickness and runs are now reaching a crescendo!!
Day 5 - sickness all gone and the runs to the loo have stopped - brilliant! Back still very painful!
Night 5 - Out for our evening meal, forgot to put mozzie milk on to stop the little beggars from biting - but it is very windy - Yep you guessed it - All the Mosquitos in Tenerife had a party that night and I was the buffet!! Covered I was 36 bites on my legs alone!
Days and Nights 6,7,8 - Thank heavens my SIL takes some extra extra strong anti-histamines for an itchy skin complaint she suffers from, as I had to take them to stop the damn itching, all the bites have bruised into horrid red marks the largest being an inch and half in diameter - the mozzies must have been dive bombing me at force. Relief to stand in the pool up to my waist in cool water - you could see the steam coming off my legs and arms every time I did!
Though finally over those the days the back improved as did the sun burn and I was able to do my now spotted beached whale impression lying on the sunbed, soaking up the sun and improving my tan.
All the following days were wonderful with no mishaps. dive bombing mozzies, bad backs or anything!!
Departure Day - Well what can I say about our departure from Tenerife - flying home was scheduled for 12:30pm - Checked in 10:00am - Departed Tenerife 3am (Yes you aren't seeing things it was 3am) Flew back into Newcastle airport 7.40am Saturday morning!! All in all we had been up from 7:45am Friday and the journey home took us almost 24hrs! Ho hum thats life and holidays LOL!!

P.S We are returning to the same place again for a week at Easter - gluttons for punishment or what!!

P.P.S - I have some stitchy pics to show in the next couple of days though I didn't get loads stitched on holiday for a change - tho' I don't have a clue as to why ROFL!

Welcome Back

Sally said...

Welcome back Su:) You certainly had an eventful holiday!

Annemarie said...

Right, that's it! I'm never going to suggest Mr. Murphy to go plague someone else again. First your sis, and now this! Judging from your hilarious writing you still had a good time though. I'm glad you did, and welcome back!

Ooooh Su! Or should I say, ouch Su!
Thank goodness days 6, 7 and 8 make up for the beginning of the holiday (helliday - sorry...hha!)That mozzie milk is worth it's weight in gold but only when you remember to use it - I can vouch from experience :>)!
That delay on the return must rank as a record, you must have been shattered. Your bubbly temperament and great sense of humour still shine through :>)
Can't wait to see your stitchy items.
Hugs, Angela

Katrina said...

Sounds like quite the vacation. Hope the majority of it was good :-). Can't wait to see your finishes.

Dianne said...

Oh you poor thing! Tummy problems on holiday are the pits. It really took it's time getting out of your system. Next time (hope not to be a next time)eat yogurt or take acidolphilus tablets that help restore the good bacteria in the gut. Helps me.
Well you can look forward to Easter now and be prepared-not for the worst!

Lavender Rose said...

Well, for goodness sakes, Su!! I'd say coming home was a relief and a better vacation from the sounds of it!!! :g You and I have similar vacations. Let's never go on one together for fear of what could happen....
Hugs,
Deb

Nicki said...

Oh Su! That sounds so funny the way you've written it but I bet it wasn't at the time! Glad the middle and end of the holiday was good, though for 24 hours travel you could have got to NZ! LOL!

Julie said...

OMG Su! I can't imagine the nightmare that first week had to be. And the flight home... Why on earth did it take so long for the plane to leave??
