What to do with Easter?

‘Def Con One’ – Pop Will Eat Itself

I can honestly do without Easter Holidays – nothing doing, no friends.

Choices?  Hah!

I’m sure Freddie probably wants me to go and work in his lorry yard.  YEEURGH!  I could visit them, but that would probably be unbearable, because it just gets like that.  Gran + Granddad will be here at the bungalow (staying in the caravan) so I’ll lose out on my new-found privacy…

I could go and stay with Jonny Badcock until Friday; possibly go the Wenns and see Fergie on Saturday (if she’s not working!).  But what of the week beyond that?

God knows.

I could maybe go to Yorkshire.  Go up on Tuesday, spend Wednesday with Flash, but what of the following eight days?

Flash hasn’t the time for me, almost understandably; so would Raquel entertain me for a day or two?  Would Elbow?  Would Paul?  Would my Dad?  I suppose the general answer is: would they fuck!

If I stay home, the advantage is seeing Fergie, but only on two occasions (at the most).

Mind you, on the plus side of this holiday lark, Betty has just spent £40 on clothes for me.
