“When you asked me away for the weekend you didn’t tell me we’d be staying in such an obscure place, 

hell there’s no shoe shops” wailed Amy.


Beach Bum said...

That would be my wife. No vacation is complete until she is able to visit at least one outlet mall.

Helen said...

Ha ha men and their camping grounds! I agree with Amy - where are the shops!!!

I enjoyed this made me laugh. ^__^

Hell indeed (for women); heaven for men!

MorningAJ said...

I bet she's wearing heels too! Most unsuitable for that kind of country.

Elaine said...

Very good! Poor Amy.

Daryl said...

Ha .. I suspect like me Amy doesnt like the countryside unless its looking at it from inside a shop or posh hotel

Valerie said...

This is a real gem. Me, I'd love it there.

Last time I popped in here someone commented on your new look blog but the curtains didn't show up for me. They're there now and I agree, the new look is really cheery.

Sharon J said...

That looks like the perfect place to me, although I have to say I do enjoy a good shoe shop, too x

Akelamalu said...

You're wife sounds like a woman after my own heart Beach ;)

I'm pleased it made you laugh Helen :)

You got it Dumdad LOL

Never go anywhere without heels AJ! LOL

Yes, poor Amy has a lot to put up with Elaine ;)

I think you're right Daryl x

I'd love it there too Valerie, as long as I could get to some shops after a few days. ;) Glad you like the new template.

I agree with you Sharon x

Empress Bee (of the high sea) said...

cheshire wife said...

Obviously not her Prince Charming as he was not ready with a glass slipper!

Ron said...

"hell there’s no shoe shops” wailed Amy."


Spoken like a TRUE shopper, that Amy!

Me? I'd be asking for the nearest Starbucks - HA!

Great one, m'dear. Have a marvi Monday!


Akelamalu said...

I think they may have both decided it was a mistake Pooch LOL

I know Bee! :0

Definitely not her Prince Charming Cheshire Wife LOL

Haha, we all have our little luxuries that we can't do without don't we Ron?

Poor Amy, stuck in the middle of no where.

Women and their shopping ROFLMAO!!! Good one my friend.

Grandma's Goulash said...

I got a big smile from this one. A friend recently got married and had a camping honeymoon. I just know that was her husband's idea, since she is definitely a hotel kind of girl. Ah, the things we do for love. :D

I don't mind camping, but it's nice to know that there is civilization not too far away. ~ Calico Contemplations

Pat said...

Awww, and he thought it would be so romantic for her. An outdoorsy guy and city girl don't mesh too well.

Banker Chick said...

Just catching up! I would say it was an obsure place if there were no place to shop for anything, roadside gift shops, anything. I love to shop.

Misty Dawn said...

You have such a wonderful sense of humor. I can't relate to Amy - I hate shopping, especially shoe shopping. LOL

Akelamalu said...

I love to shop too Banker Chick :)

Thankyou Misty x
