Straw Donkeys, Castanets and Awful Ornaments

I'm back! Browner than I was when I went (also a bit pink across the shoulder area due to a sudden Ambre Solaire drought this morning when no-one would buy any more as "there's no point, the flight's in five hours), weighed down with cheesy souvenirs that I wouldn't have bought ordinarily but Mac wanted something "spanish", David wanted some castanets and the ornament (similar to pictured) will look lovely on The Stewarts' mantelpiece and an overwhelming sense of relief that a) Bea didn't do as she threatened on the plane on the way home, b) that Size Zero hell wasn't as bad as I thought thanks to two of my travelling companions and c) that it's all over!

I returned to kisses from David, sleeping hugs from Mac and excited woofing from the dogs. I made it! I survived! Phew!

So.....what have I missed?

I am not an authority on this, nmoo, but i think you've missed.....rain!

...the kind of rain that makes it impossible to do anything, since it's clear for a while, lulling you into a false sense of security and you think "You know what, if I put the laundry out now/walk the dog/clean the windows it should be OK." And then, just as you set off to walk the dog, having left out the laundry in the wind, it lashes down! So no, you missed nothing of interest! What did we miss?

NMOO,

So, I'm in the early planning stages of a week away for 3 girls who needs a bit of cheering up..somewhere to go out dancing but preferably not with a bunch of 17 year olds (nothing personal but we're just about old enough to be their mother's) - what was Ibiza like?

Kelly and Natural Blonde - I'm currently working (when I'm not getting washing in off the line cos of the rain!) on part one of my epic adventure, hope to post later this afternoon! On the whole though, if you steered clear of clubs called Groin and Sweat all was well. The beaches were fab and the sea was lovely and there were lots of lovely little restaurants dotted around.

I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives. I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
