    Way to go, you are doing fab;). Enjoy your hols and I have every faith in you that it'll be a smoke free one.

  • Thanks guys for all your good wishes...good to hear from you......and Nutmeg, we have very similar tastes....olives, tapas...oh yes!!!!!..will you be having a San Miguel or a bottle of Rioja with that?

    But Nifty..what are we going to do with you...bring your own pork scratchings?

  • A muchly maligned snack is the pork scratching mucker!

    Some people even say they aren't good for you.....I don't listen to them!

    Correction, I would like an olive ...... could you stick it in a martini for me please? :D

  • Would be my pleasure..I may even roller skate to your table with it perched on a tray..there again you be a bit young to remember that advert.

  • I think I do......I think??

    Definitely remember the Leanord Rossiter and Joan Collins Cinzano one....classic mate :D

  • Oh yes..agreed...they were superb....nice one!!!!!

  • 1980's Martini Ads

    Any time, any place, any where :)

  • Of course Nutmeg.....that was it...couldn't remember the words...it is all flooding back...don't start Nifty off now...he'll be back on the flares and bl00dy Noddy Holder again!!!!!

  • Thanks Fi ...... I got the tune rolling round my head now! :rolleyes:

    How about.....

    "For Mash Get Smashhhh!"

    :D

  • Of course Nutmeg.....that was it...couldn't remember the words...it is all flooding back...don't start Nifty off now...he'll be back on the flares and bl00dy Noddy Holder again!!!!!

    Errrr.....at least I'm not roller skating all over the spot in a short skirt mucker!

    You could have shaved yer legs first!! yagagagag! :D

  • LOL!!!!!...loving it Nifty....glad to hear your memory has been restored.....Martini girls were quite the thing back then!!!!!....were never my cup of tea though......

  • I bet if one roller skated right up to you and fell in your lap you wouldn't have complained though mucker?!

    Knowing my luck....I'd get the one with the beard!

    Chortle!

    Titter!

    :D

  • You got me there Nifty...we all have our weaknesses!!!!...but not giving in to the monster seems to be our strength...which is such a great thing to say....must have at least 1 Martini on the holiday...and just hear my missus saying....'What are you smiling at?'......oh nothing, dear...just that forum...those crazy dudes just keep me going....thanks everyone.

  • .we all have our weaknesses!!!!...but not giving in to the monster seems to be our strength...which is such a great thing

    Thats sums everything up nicely:)

  • Cymro. I think you will be pleasantly surprised to find that the travelling is much improved when you dont have all that nonsmoking time in airports and planes to endure, dont know about the actual holiday, Is there a lot of smoking in Tenerife?

  • Hi MRSM.....good to hear from you......yes....you are dead right there....and no sneaking off from the poolside to have a sly smoke away from my daughter...she is going to be so happy about that...we can play pool or table tennis instead!!!.....regarding smoking in Tenerife...wherever in the Med and the Canaries I've been it seems to be rife....there again, I will have a whole new perspective on things...actually going out to the balcony to enjoy the view etc.....early morning beach walks for the sheer pleasure..not my first fix.....and not being embarrassed about leaving the restaurant table to satisfy my sad habit....all good...I have no doubt at all in myself...I will not smoke...and from this post I am actually convincing myself that it will be an even better holiday without the fags!!!!

  • I'm expecting photographic evidence of the martini mucker :)

    There are some ground rules to the challenge though:

    1) There must be an olive and ..... a little umbrella in it.

    2) It must be drunk at night time ... preferably by the pool.

    3) You must be wearing a skirt (red or blue if I remember correctly) ... (and if possible roller skates) :D

    Shouldn't be too difficult mucker?

    :)

  • Nifty...what a challenge for me....I see no problem meeting most of your criteria...the roller skates may have to be replaced by high heels though...will that be ok?

  • That'll do just fine sir!

    Go for it mate....what a holiday this is going to be!!! hehehe :D

    Have fun mucker....I know you will :)

  • Have a lovely holiday!!!

  • Thanks Gally...good to hear from you...hope you are doing well.
