On top of that, I am proud to announce that I also cycled to Italy this morning. Under normal circumstances, that would sound like an amazing feat but considering I am just west of Monaco, its not so brave.
Being just West of Monaco puts me in France, and when I say just west, I mean by less than 10 metres! I am learning pro’s and cons about being down here in Cap D’Ail. A very definite pro is while running along the tiny cliff path, all the other runners say hello as they are passing – I like this, in fact I like it a lot. It kind of makes the pain more bearable. The down side is that I got mugged by a french lady this morning. Was it a mugging or more of a rape? Anywhere that charges 3.50€ for a small coffee is taking the piss in my book – and to really rub salt into the wounds – it tasted like one week old camel piss too !
Monaco is currently under construction for the F1. While we were there, I amused myself by walking around the circuit every day. Now we have moved, I don’t miss the people there. It’s all very anal and trendy – far from my natural scene. People pretending that they are minted as they ponce around the local cafés and bars. Minted is the guy two boats down. He arrived yesterday with his two Bentleys (one a convertible). Had his crew clear all the shopping bags from them and then park them both for him – now that is seriously minted.
I decided to jump ship again – now looking at a couple of new adventures, one as far away as Hong Kong. There are few people I meet that I could repeatedly punch in the throat – but the Captain here is one of those. I will be back in Brussels by Monday 21st. I have a nice little number lined up already for the summer season but will also be keeping an eye on the full time roles.
My sister is now officially a Grandma – oh how that makes me laugh. The new addition is called Noah. I can imagine Noah’s Grandad being quite chuffed at the biblical implications. ‘Who built the Ark – Noah, Noah – Who built the Ark – Brother Noah built the Ark’.
On lighter note – I have awarded my girlfriend two ‘good girlfriend’ points today – for what? For being a good girlfriend of course!
I want to know why men are not allowed to take part in the Race for Life, and also how Cancer Research can they get away with that. If it were a men only event, there would be one eyed skinhead lesbians coming out of the woodwork everywhere to complain about equality.
