Stinkin’ holiday

“I’m tired of this place, I just want to go home!” Ellie said. “This trip sucks.  The toilet looks like something died in it and there’s crap on the door!”

She waved her arm in the direction of the offending door.

It was useless, her mother was on the other side of the world and she had signed up for this volunteer role in some hope of getting away from the lonely summer holidays – roaming the streets whilst mum was at work, and generally doing nothing exciting.

They never did anything exciting.

“Well honey, you can pack up and leave – or you can stick it out and see how you feel in a week” the voice of her mother crackled on the other end of the line.

“Even the reception here is fucking dicey!”

“don’t forget to smile, honey”

“I’ll smile alright..” she said, picking up a stick of chalk.
