    For some reason I have intertwined with the Benidorm Snowbirds posts. It looks to me as if copious amounts of alcohol and bacon butties are involved in their social calendar.;)(y)

    I wouldn't say that, they organise a meal or social gathering once or twice a week. What's wrong with that? Its much better than just sitting somewhere wondering who to wind up next :)

    I just hope that the UK has dried out before we return home for the summer.
    Can't wait to get my Mits on a bacon buttie I haven't seen one since I left the Uk last October.

    I think the social life while away in the van in winter is the db's. Does your sense of humour a world of good:)

    Nothing wrong with that at all young Jim, perhaps it is a bit of jealousy on my part.:)

    On Saturday we sat outside Simmons bakery at Chiswell Green St Albans and eat one of their delicious bacon rolls. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. It hit the spots.
    Anyone in the area should give it a try.(y)

    Ah yes, the Sunday morning Bacon Buttie Brigade. There's nothing quite like cooking up 800 rashers of bacon for your fellow Funsters to start the day.

    We have bacon butty days here at home
    The family ( as mentioned previously ) is pretty big
    So half come round on Wednesdays for a get together and bacon rolls, while the other half come round on Fridays for more bacon rolls

    Suits me down to the ground LOL !!!!

    Bacon butties on a Sunday morning while watching Moto GP or WSB or BSB, a ritual in our house, is there a cure??

    Nothing wrong with the way of life in Benni. Dry out slowly on the way back to the UK

    It's not that it was too expensive it was just the amount that got wasted by Blind Folk who squirted it all over their wrists and arms....... feel so sorry for Tina.......:moon2:

    ...can't stop, gotta get down to the South coast on the rob, lots of empty houses. See-ya

    We load up when we go back to the uk the same as we do for going to Morocco.
    Too expensive in both places!
