I think I might be a procrastinator - I'll try to suss that out tomorrow!

Oh dear, I have another "odds and sods" post all lined up in my head but I have tons to do today and yesterday was full on (being Mother's Day here in France), so I'm re-posting something I just saw about "being British". Bloody hell, now I know why I'm such a stereotype!

1, 2, 7 and 10 particularly apply to me. In the comments after, someone wrote "feeling proud and respectable for having read every rule and obeying every single one of them, then being disappointed when you don’t get the full search to prove it." 


"the utter joy at being able to have a pint with your breakfast at 04.00 in the morning without disapproving sneers from other people. (this is not exclusive to airports and also applies to any Wetherspoons you have ever visited)".


"constantly zipping and unzipping the pocket in your bag that holds your passport and boarding pass just to check (AGAIN) that you haven’t forgotten them"!


  1. Hmmm, possibly applies to British colonies too....I am guilty of the same! All except alcohol at 4 am as it's not allowed here :)

    1. I think we have some very common traits indeed. As for the alcohol, I wouldn't know if they sell alcohol in the airport bars 24/7 - maybe they do. But I guess the sun is over the yardarm somewhere in the world permanently isn't it!
