I’m a World Cup Wag ;-)

I say the term ‘Wag’ loosely as  although I am not dating a premiership footballer 🙁 , I will however be married to the World Cup for the next 31 days. I have even taken annual leave so I don’t miss a match!! Yes some girls actually do love the game but unfortunately and I don’t like to admit but the sexist views that women wont be tuning into the world cup could well be true. Apparently only 24% of women will be following the World Cup this year and although an increase on the last World Cup , according to some women the World Cup will have no affect on their schedules.

FRED OLSEN OFFERING BOTOX ONBOARD???

Cruising can often make you feel ten years younger but cruise lines are actually offering you to look ten years younger too. Yes it may come as a surprise to you as it did to me , but now you can book BOTOX  on board!!!  Apparently surgery at sea is alot more common than we think. I can imagine a few husbands around the world will be smiling at the thought that they may be travelling home with a lady ten years younger.

DANCING ON THE WAVES

Most of us love to dance whether it be ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ or ‘Dancing in the Street’  as many song titles show and depending on what cruise you go can also determine the kind of dancing available on board. Cunard  and P&O may offer more ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ rather than ‘Disco Dancing’ on Royal Caribbean but what kind of dancing will I be doing when I embark on the Royal Crown River Cruise this week.

SPEEDOS AND BIKINIS BANNED

Although I am sure the majority of my male customers do not wear speedos, but if you do and to all the ladies who wear bikinis then you need to be aware that if one of your cruise ports in Palma or you have a stay in Majorca then you need to be aware of the new law being enforced .

ALDI VS WAITROSE

Its something we do on a weekly basis , we cant live without doing it and choices have to be made regarding it and that is supermarket shopping. But what drives us to shop at the supermarkets we shop at, we have a choice in which we choose but for whatever reason the majority of us choose the same supermarket because of the following reasons. Good value for money – we want to know that the groceries we are buying arn’t going to be cheaper at the other supermarket down the road.  Quality – we don’t mind paying a bit extra but are expectations are high and we want to know that we are buying quality food with the finest ingredients. Location – another factor when choosing our supermarket, with time not always on our side then the supermarket nearest to us will do.
