Topic : Up a creek without a paddle

I received the Magazine and Merlin Rocket Fixtures book. I eagerly showed my wife and mother who was here at the time. "Look The Bolton Open 11th June!" to which my wife replied "You won't be doing that it's our 10th Wedding anniversary on the 8th and you said you'd take me away."

So how do I get out of that one! I want to sail but without the pain of divorce.

Book up a great weekend/week away, but for the weekend before. Obviously you just can't find anything on the weekend after can you.

Unfortunately Bolton is my home fixture which is 15 mins away.

I dont know how well you get on with your Mother in law? but what about booking a weekend away in Paris for two then tell the M/L that she might love to go shoping in Paris with her daughter as a thank you from yourself. If you announce this in front of your wife what sort of reaction would you get? After all two women lots of shops, they just wont miss you.
Leaving you to go sailing.
With apoligies to my wife & the rest of the fairer sex!
No your right I wouln't have the nerve!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is easy; you take her away on the 8th, and come back on the 9th, perhaps bringing her back with you...

Went with Alan F's advice and suggested that we go the weekend prior but the lovely Florence was a bit reluctant (Curious). When pressed it was revealed that she had a life class that weekend (painting, her hobby).

Bingo, unstuffed!

She doesn't fancy Easter in Scotland as a goodwill gesture?
