Well, I'm back (boohoo). It's going to take me forever to catch up with all the posts etc on here and other blogs so forgive me for being slow at replying to things (Liz, you'll just have to be patient. Yes, I know you have to look it up in the dictionary ......)
A few little weeks hiding away in the hills in Portugal was fab. It's definitely time to come back though when the temperature in the sun yesterday was about 46C and a mere 34C degrees in the house. The sensor we'd put directly in the sun was reading 57.6C. Yuk. Oh, and we started to hear English voices coming from a house over the hill - time to escape back to Blighty when you can hear screaming and shouting in English. What a cheek! - how dare they appear in the hills. I may be a Brit but everything inside me shrivels up and wants to run like mad when I can hear fellow Brits carrying on in the unique way of bellowing we seem to have.
Anyhow, today I'm rather cool (in fact I think my toes are blue) which is lovely. I'm going to spend a couple of days with my Mum & Dad before I go home so certain impatient persons may have to wait for pics of things I may or may not have been up to while supervising Lalaland Portugal Division. :-)
