Loretta’s Unbiased View on the EU Referendum

Hello Cherry Callers! It’s all blue skies, warm breezes, turquoise (well, almost) waters and annoying seagulls here outside the Cherry Call HQ windows. It finally feels like the weather is on our side!

Talking of weather, this warm spell has got Loretta dreaming of flip-flops, poolside sun bathing and sangrias on a daily basis. All I’ve been hearing about is her multiple ‘holibob’ choices, her new diet and how the EU referendum could spoil it all! So far Marbella is at the top of the list, closely followed by Málaga.

According to my loveable, ditzy PA, if the vote sways in the Brexit direction all will be lost in the bid to lose 21lbs before her sister’s wedding in September. Yes, exactly – what on earth? You know, I often think I’ve heard it all but then Loretta opens her mouth again and a whole load of other nonsense and riddles come out, confirming that I’ll never have heard it all so long as she is employed with us.

OK, I’ll explain – and these are her words, not mine. Apparently, if we leave the EU the cost of holidays will shoot up (she’s got one thing right so far…) and this will put a spanner in the works with regards to her Monday night fat fighting club. When questioned about this, Loretta blamed the lack of holiday (due to an all inclusive week in Marbella doubling in price) causing a mass motivation drought, which would leave her with no ‘get up and go’ to shift her unwanted pounds.

“Isn’t your sisters wedding enough of a push to lose some weight?”, I asked.

‘No Robin. It’s not. You don’t understand. The need to get in a bikini and lounge by the pool is more…”

“More what Loretta?”

“Well, not important but… you know, more of me is on show in a bikini than in poxy dress and I don’t want to be the only beached whale especially if Marco is there. Anyway, you wouldn’t understand.”

“Who’s Marco?”, I asked, remembering he was her love crush the past two years.

“He’s the Plaza del Bella barman and I promised myself I would get down two dress sizes by the time I next saw him”, she said in a desperate voice.

Oh poor Loretta, I do feel for her. Well, she’ll just have to cut down on the biscuits wont she. Feeling uncomfortable at her obvious upset, I diverted the topic back to more pressing issues. The referendum. It turns out that neither of us are sure how we’re going to vote on the 23rd June – even with such strong views about her cheap holidays in Europe! I must give her more credit, who’d have thought it!

At least there’s one (well, 53 actually) good bit of news. We’ve come up trumps again with a whole long list of price drops! So if you need to give your pal in Portugal some diet tips or you’d like to discuss the EU referendum with your Uncle Nigel in Kenya, you can!
