Pig's Holiday (blog-free, cooking-free, France-free)

"Pig is going on her Summer Holiday

No more blogging for 2 weeks or three

Back to Blighty for her Summer Holiday

A break for you and a break for me-ee-eee

Such a break for me

I'm going where my friends all love me

I'm going where the lingo is mine

I'll be stocking up at Waitrose

And drinking plenty of wine,

This fat piggy needs a France-free Holiday

Had enough of being patronised

Hate the man who stole my Kipling wa-allet

My cellar needs to be sani-ti -i-ised

To make my dreams come true

HO! Pig is going on her Summer Holiday....."

Repeat to Fade.

After my mad dash around Blighty I shall be retiring to a quiet corner of La Belle France. The lovely people at France Telecom assure me that my internet connection will be up and running in a jiffy. Those of you who are familiar with getting phones and internet connected in France are already clicking away in disgust, 'Humph, we won't be seeing her for a month or so'.

You may be right, although I have great faith in my husband's ability to charm laptops into doing what he wants them to do, he's a very clever man. Failing that, I shall wander the lanes of France, memory stick in pocket, hoping to stumble upon an internet-enabled computer from which I can upload my culinary treats.

It is with a slight tear in my piggy eye and a tremble in my trotter, that I bid you farewell, but this is au revoir, not adieu.

Big snorty kisses,

Welcome back to the land of floods and torrential downpours! I didnt realise that you are English ... shame we didnt all arrange a nice GF meet-up!


Marianne said...

Yes, come to London and let's organise a lovely girly giggly lunch. That would be a treat. Let us know if you are coming this way!

mutterings and meanderings said...

Have a lovely time Pig!

Stay at home dad said...

Oh No! Have a great time anyway. And I will think of you all at your girly, giggly lunch. Sniff.

Suffolkmum said...

Hope you have a fantastic time, loved the rhyme!

beta mum said...

... and we'll be off to La Belle France in a couple of weeks - getting to know the cyber cafe in the nearest town big enough for a decent broadband connection.
Have a great time.

Elsie Button said...

Drunk Mummy said...

I could swear I can hear the dulcet tones of Sir Cliff!
Have a great holiday Pig, I shall miss you, but I will think of you trawling the wine aisles in Waitrose and laughing dementedly!

Frog in the Field said...

Dear Pig,
Which Waitrose will we see you in?
Both the branches here are full of manic mothers, well in the wine aisles, anyway.
Thanks for your glowing, if not wildly romantic review of my products (
All the hopes I had of your sanity are gone, now I know you really are completely mad...thank goodness I'm not alone!
Perhaps you'd like to come and visit my pigs in the garden while you're over here?

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Much better words to the song! Have a lovely time.

Oh bugger! I put the comment intended for this posting onto the one about chilli chocolate truffles! Not to worry, I've copied and pasted:

"Ca va, Piggy? Tres bien, j'espere. There, that's just about the limit of my French and it's probably wrong. No accents for a start! Hope you are having a grand time snuffling around la belle France but looking forward to you getting back in touch with all your bloggy pals soon!"
