Isn't this amazing? That's now literally three days following in a row that I have posted to my blog. I am a little bit sad, I just checked - it's the first time since May that this has happened. Unprecedented. Since May.
I'll let you in on the secret: I'm off work this week. That's right, on holiday. Actually, that's not a secret. I just checked. This is the second time since Monday that I have mentioned this. Hardly subtle. You can look back at Monday's post if you need a quick refresher. None of that 'previously on ALBOWIEB' stuff here. Maybe I need to start doing that, using the first paragraph as a quick reminder of the last post. The next paragraph would be one sentence long before I cut to a commercial break.
It's not been a classic holiday week - I can't imagine many people spend their annual leave in Coventry. It's quite the tourist destination if you like, say, road traffic layout follies of the 1960s, or once great automotive powerhouse production facilities now lying under acres of rubble. That sort of thing. There is also the UK's first city centre Ikea store, which is much better than the UK's previous out-of-town Ikea stores, because you can just about find your way round it and it's easier to get to the meatballs.
It's not been a classic holiday weather week - most people like to take their holidays when the weather is sunny, so that they can return to work the following week and people will coo for several minutes at their peeling sunburn and get a little jealous. I might have to sit in my local sunbed for 20 minutes and slather myself in cooking oil. That will make my colleagues well jell (that's an Essex phrase).
