I do not want hear about any problems

I do not want hear about any problems… I’m off to Gran Canaria!

" Right, I’m off to Gran Canaria. When everything around me is in a mad rush, when I have nowhere to get any peace and quiet, when everyone at the office comes to me to help them solve a million issues. At moments like these, I always picture myself at the same place. And then I say to myself, "I have to come up with something to take three days off and get away to Gran Canaria"

Please! Three days in Gran Canaria. That’s all I’m asking, at least for a quick break. To get away from work and rest a little. That is the image that springs to mind right now while I sit in front of my monitor. Time for myself at one of the many spas on the island. They have several wellness centres there, so I always get to try something new on each trip. I certainly do not intend to give up my annual getaway to the sun.

My work colleagues will be staying behind, arguing in their heavy winter clothing, while I’ll be sunbathing on the beach, smack bang in the middle of January. Oh, and In the most expensive bikini I can find. I’ll have a full beauty treatment while I’m there. Talassotherapy, mud, hydromassage, chocolate therapy… anything I can think of. And with my mobile firmly switched off!

So now you know. If one day I do not answer your phone call, well, you can just imagine the island to which I’m headed! "
