i've got this.


We holiday in the UK every year and I'm often surprised by how much it costs compared to a fortnight in the Med. I suppose we have the added cost of flights and car rental, but a week at a Butlins or Certer Parcs we easily cost over 2000. Always seemed like a lot to me for what they offer so we always end up renting a house somewhere, even that can be expensive a normal year, and this year isn't normal. Everyone is holidaying "at home" so you are really late if you're looking for somewhere to stay this summer.

holidaying in england is a rip off. we've got well over two weeks at two great sites with overnight stays and eurotunnel we're looking at £1600, which is the most we've paid. just had a look at google maps, to drive from stockholm to amsterdam is a similar trek that we do to the french alps, so you'll need an overnight. you can get all the camping gear for £1000. and you can drink all you like without much of a hangover.

We've booked 2 weeks in the UK self catering in September for just over a grand. Near a beach and near a pub. No fannying around driving for hours or spending hours in super covid spreading airports.

Overarching plan: work towards a house move in the New Year, downsize a bit once the kids have all left home. Over the last couple of months we’ve been emptying cupboards, generally doing Marie Kondo chucking out type stuff.

A couple of large boxes arrive full of bedding and various sundries, for the use of the lad fucking off to Uni.

Me: ‘Why can’t he just take the stuff he’s already got? Not like we’ll need it’

Her: ‘He’s moving away, he’s obviously got to have new’

Bit of advice please lads and lassies.
Señora Musta is a lovely woman with innumerable talents, but she's not, how does one phrase this? She's not an intellectual.
She has always had a fairly wide hippy streak vegetarian, animal rights ...
As my dad useter say
" She'll do you a good turn before a bad "un".
But she has a mate who is a full on nutter. Trump supporter believes every conspiracy theory going and is pouring poison into her ear on a daily basis.
5g, ant- vax, deep state, you name it.
I am finding it increasingly difficult to persuade her that it's all bullshit, most of it emanating from Q anon.
How does one proceed in these matters without resorting to a 6lb ball-peen hammer?
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

Is there anyone else - sensible - to whom she listens? If it comes from them she might just pay heed. You have no chance, I'm afraid.

Ah yes went camping with just the missus once and she got pissed off because I brought along two separate tents.

Am led to believe a decent anti Q tactic is to show them the many very specific predictions from even the first Q stuff that were quickly shown to be competely wrong. If they keep checking from there you might have some joy. If not, .....
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I have had a similar issue over the last few months with my Mrs. Some cunt has a conspiracy theory and all common sense goes out the window. I have had a few failed attempts nearly ending in divorce so now I sit back, nod and hope it all blows over.

Sounds like it might be broken beyond useful repair Musta. Could be time to trade in for something more recent?

Could be. If it's the flux capacitor, as I fear it may be, then I'm left with little choice.
Hybrid I think.
