Still riding high after our week in Prague, Mrs J and I have spotted another get-away-from-it-all opportunity; this time an all-expenses-paid adventure offering travel, see-sighting (Mrs J’s word) and, best of all, celebrity – especially designed for the mature couple. Yes, it’s Mars and back with no interference from tour-guides, cabin crew, windmills, or LibDem canvassers.
Of course I have a few concerns. Will we be able to receive SkySport? Will we come back younger and miss the Ashes tour? Will the loo paper last? But one is bound to consider such weighty issues before departure, as ever; never mind the Meaning of Life which no doubt some of the couples vying for the trip will bang on about.
Any road oop, despite Backside’s insistence that the sponsors provide a leggy young blonde for his delectation, we’ll send in our application post haste.
