So the big unspoken stress during the holiday was the fact that the boy's role is being made redundant.
The phone call came right in the middle of our time away and unlike the rest of the people he is being kept on for a few months and then being made redundant.
You know several years ago it was me who was given a redundancy news via phone when I was in the UK so I know what it's like.
Whilst it's not the best time for such things to happen it's not the end of the world.
But it tainted the rest of the holiday with stress and made the whole thing just un-holiday like.
