We fly home tomorrow after 3 weeks in Florida with friends; friends of friends. We have a villa here with it's own pool, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, everything you could possibly want or need for a great holiday.
We were coming anyway and I said if they wanted to join us they'd be more than welcome, we're going any way so free accommodation. 3 weeks of her complaints; the heated pool is too warm; when we eat out the portions are too big; when we got the bill one evening $75 per couple she exclaimed "bloody hell", it was a restaurant we suggested, one we really like; she orders salads and then complains there's too much lettuce. Every other evening DH has cooked a BBQ, delicious steaks, pork, chicken and sausages. The sausages are too spicy, one beautiful piece of steak cut into 4, her's had gristle!! the pork wasn't crispy enough. Their bed creaks and is noisy "alright for one I suppose". Are we buying too much coffee, wine and brandy? Do we need more washing powder? Is that lime you're about to throw away really no good?
He's lovely and helpful while she does next to nothing apart from moaning of course. We've had friends here before; they treat us to a meal to say 'thank you' or buy a small gift for the villa, something to remind us of their stay. Once they made a financial contribution towards the expense of their stay and not once, not one single complaint.
So it's 19.10 pm and DH has just lit the BBQ for the last time and I'm typing away on here with my tongue firmly clenched between my teeth and drinking a very large bacardi and coke, and hoping against hope that I can, for just one more evening 'keep my powder dry' as my gran used to say, and say nothing.
