So my week long silence on this occasion is due to the fact that Sam and I have been on holday to Madrid! We got back yesterday and had a great time; just what we needed. We rented an apartment in the centre of town which was most convenient. It had kitchen facilities, a DVD player and some (variable) WiFi so we could keep online a little (although FaceBook was forbidden…). The only slight downside was a rather interesting sofa bed. I have to admit, I have slept on worse, but coupled with the curtains and shutters which didn’t keep out all of the light AND the noisy people in the bars on the street below, it was often hard to get to sleep. Thankfully, we adapted a bit and got used to it. Oh, and we bought ear plugs!
The weather was quite pleasant though. We still needed our coats most of the time, but it was bright and sunny which was a lovely change from the UK. We also had some lovely food and made use of the apartment to eat in a few times, so we didn’t feel as unhealthy as you often can after several days away.
We are back home now though which means work looms ever near again – boo! But, we are going to see Star Wars in Concert at the O2 this afternoon which will be fun. Tomorrow we are going to Sam’s parents for Sophie’s birthday. So still lots of things to do until Tuesday morning calls. Anyway, now to steady state erg before we head off to Londres. ¡Hasta pronto!
