All kinds of wobble

Backdated entry:
Before booking the week away, I read all the sites (there are thousands of holiday review sites now, including www.tripadvisor.com) - as a retired travel agent I was keen to have as much knowledge as possible, as the last time I went to this Spanish coast I was 6 years old.

The review that stuck in my mind, was from a guy who had stayed in our hotel - saying he couldn't understand why people complained about the food considering the amount of money they were paying for the holiday and he mentioned that the desserts didn't vary much during the week - apparently there was plenty of jelly on offer. As jelly doesn't exist in France - this wasn't a problem for us - especially with a nearly 3 year old in tow. And yes, the first day we had 'yellow wobble', the next, 'orange wobble' and guess what? the next day ' red wobble'. I made a joke tomorrow would be green wobble - but no. So I put 'green wobble' out of my mind.

On our package we could eat in the sister hotel - The Pineda Palace on the sea front - so we did the following day (that's another story) - but you've guessed it - they had 'green wobble' on the menu.
