So I have returned from a lovely girly holiday in Spain with the gorgeous Katie Boo. All-inclusive hilarity! That guy! Kareoke! In-jokes! Silliness! Wedding chat! Medieval feasts where you get to eat chicken with your hands! Mad skillz! Flamenco! Castles! Top Trumps! Brian Blessed!

And then I had a lovely weekend in London where I got to hang out with Mattheiu, chilling and watching South Park and chatting about out uni adventures; share insulting and hilarious conversation with the comedy double act that is (are?) Dave and Asiz; and then have a proper girly lunch with Vixie and Kaz today, full of chat and catching up. And the wonder that is Stealth Snail….

All in all, a TOP first week to the half-term break. The second week’s far more chilled, loaded as it is with chores and work and jobs around the house and stuff to prep for school and reports to write and books to balance and Christmas prep to do and phone calls to make, but it should be fun and/or productive. And then a visit at the weekend, and Bryony Boo’s christening on Sunday. Bring on the banter! And in the meantime, here are some of my favourite pics from Spain (once Katie Boo’s uploaded hers, I shall be back for round two… :-)).

Have a wonderful week, all!

Kate breaking out her Brian Blessed impression. She is *so* good at it!

Re-enacting our favourite part of the Ryanair safety routine. In a sombrero. Oh yes.Jase (Katie Boo’s fiance) came to pick her up from Luton. MASSIVE boyfriend / fiance / husband / partner points for him. Love this couple – they are utter poppets!

    That is a good Brian Blessed impression. I can almost hear her call for fresh horses.

    Isn’t it amazing that you can just pop over to Spain! It’s so far away from where I am. I’ve only been to Europe once, in 1986, to the South of France. That was beautiful.

    Sounds like loads of fun! I’m jealous of your midterms breaks. No breaks for me ’til Christmas. Oh man, that seems soooooooo far away!
