Listen in, listen Ian!
Man, I've not written properly here for ages. I'm in wind down mode a bit at work, because starting tomorrow I'm on jury duty in Wood Green. I'm quite excited about this, although obviously I could do without getting stuck on a 6 month megatrial or something. I'm also slightly nervous that the other jury members will be, well, the sort of people you see out on the streets, or writing comments on websites and they're going to want to convict people because their eyes are too close together.|
Last month S and I went on holiday to Spain, which was lovely. We flew to Murcia and hired a car, and I drove around Spain which was interesting, and due to the roads not actually having the same names as they were labelled with on the AA Road Atlas on Spain we got to see a lovely bit of coastal road en route to arriving at the campsite a couple of hours late. After that it was pretty much all plain sailing though, with only one minor incidence of forgetting that they go the other way round roundabouts abroad.
Granada province is beautiful, all hilly and sunny and it was a pleasure to eat breakfast on the veranda outside our cave each morning:
We were staying near the town of Baza, and had arrived just in time for the local festival, which involved everyone getting covered in used engine oil.
Lovely. Otherwise, we went to see the Alhambra, which is every bit as fantastic as advertised.
Also, there were lakes and kittens:
Spain, there. Highly recommended.
