Sun, sea, sand... and raincoats
Dear Global Readership
I hope this finds you well and thriving. It's been a few weeks since I last posted but there's nothing to worry about; I'm fine and dandy. I was just experiencing "real life" rather than blogging about stuff. I've had a great time!
We are just back from about 10 days in England where we went to a friend's wedding, saw family, spent a week in Cornwall (with the view from our room being of St Michael's Mount - as per picture above), staying with friends in the West Midlands and near the Lake District. It was just what the doctor ordered. (You will realise this is merely a saying; I hadn't wasted the time and resources of the NHS by going to see my GP for his advice on my holiday plans...!). We had a ball: we went to the beach (I went swimming), we visisted stately homes and gardens, we sunbathed, drank coffee & ate cakes, it rained and we got wet, we went for walks, read books, chatted to each other & watched West Wing DVDs - what could be more perfect?!
I may try and post some holiday pictures at a later date but I am aware I promised I would post the Portugal ones at Easter and that was a good couple of months ago no. In my defence, my husband is the keeper of the matrimonial camera and he is the downloader of photos etc and it's because he hasn't sorted out the Easter ones yet that I haven't been able to keep my word... Yes, yes, blame it on the spouse - what fine behaviour.
So now I am back at work and, actually, it is OK. That is partly because most of the rest of the world is on holiday so no is around to respond to my letters or return my calls. I am also trying to turn over a new leaf and leave the office a little earlier. So far, so good. I'll keep you posted!
Bye for now
