Back From Blighty

I got back from the UK last night after three weeks away from Spain, my longest stint away in five years. The weather was perfect with the temperatures comfortable enough to go for long walks during the day and enjoy a nice long sweatless sleep at night.

It goes without saying that I had a mooch through the last of the sales and had a mini haul in Monsoon´s 70% off sale which surprisingly was full of good stuff and not the dregs that you would expect at such bargain prices. I managed to catch a Marks and Spencer sale and stocked up on a some cut price summer shorts and imperative undies. I am not quite sure how I am going to fit into my new clobber as I got into the habit of Sainsbury´s Big Breakfast whilst there in the morning, not to mention some fish and chip suppers and roasts.

Back to the heat and longing for autumn as the children are desperate for a bit of education and I would like to get into comfortable walking again.
