Mrs Grumpy

OK, car is half packed for camping.

I am a bit grumpy. Would be grumpier if hadn't had a few glasses of wine.

Have you seen the weather forecast? I'd be better off pitching the bloody tent in the back garden.

I phoned Mel to suggest alternative based in more waterproof accommodation, i.e. our houses. I was thinking we could still spend time together, just without the camping piece. The kids could do sleepovers and we could find indoor activities. Mel was a walkover, persuaded in five secs flat.

I phoned Sandra and she was immovable, intransigent and plain bloody stubborn. She's promised the kids a camping holiday and she's not got the gumption to provide them with an alternative.

Well if she's not backing down, I'm damned if I am, but Mel is because I did my sales pitch. The agreed wisdom is that we'll bail on Sunday.

Sunday's weather forecast is - thunderstorms.

Great!

Er, this was written at the point when Mel said "We might visit you" clearly indicating she would not be pitching a tent. Granted you came through in the end and actually Sandra proved to be the biggest wimp. :)
