    I am the first to confess I am a nightmare to travel with, like many I do it so often alone when I have my good lady with me I find the whole experience quite traumatic. Stop to look in the shops, choosing a book at the airport, have I seen the nearest toilets? For most of us getting from A-B even for holiday is a chore, my vacation starts when the shorts and flip flops are on after the unpacking.

    This week returning from Asia we are in Qatar Business on a busy flight in the two middle seats, I am watching a film my good lady dozed off a long time ago. She then wakes and staggers to the bathroom, several minutes later a gentlemen sits in her seat, you ok I ask. Yes I am going to go to sleep here, your wife came out of the bathroom, I entered and when I came out she is flat out asleep in my seat next to my sleeping wife.

    I decided to then go to sleep myself, and try and stay asleep until the shock for both ladies was over and done with.

    Happy weekend all.

    Well, here is another careful reply….is your wife a bit dozy G&T?

    Have a great weekend too.

    icenspice: partners are NEVER dozy, but sometimes maybe enjoy a bit too much G&T?

    Great one G&T. Love it.

    I’ve never had that happen to me but I know exactly what you mean. Between us the rules are clear and understood. After security I head straight to the lounge while Mrs. LP goes round the shops. She buys nothing but has a moan about prices/quality/choice when she gets back. I pretend to listen whilst nodding my head in sympathy. Ah, the joys of married life 😉

    I hate to be the one to suggest this, Gin&Tonic but maybe your wife knew exactly what she was doing … 🙂
