And so I’m back… *

Back less than a day and already my calendar is filling up. Hey, it’s not my fault I’m popular. Right?
In the week I was gone not a lot happened really, the holiday was good but nothing to write home about, so I didn’t. That plus the fact that we’d have been home before any postcard arrived. Suffice to say that there was a lot of sitting around in the sun, a few meals out (including one gorgeous fillet steak that I struggled to finish and cost all of … £14? would’ve cost me at least £20 here…) and I chipped into the Spanish economy as best I could via the golden nectar that is San Miguel (which shouldn’t really be drunk outside of Spain… nor sober for that matter…).
I read Casino Royale on the plane on the way over (it’s only a couple of hundred pages) and quite enjoyed it. Very old fashioned now but still quite exciting. Then I tackled Watchmen which was very good and has only whetted my appetite for the movie all the more, then it was two very forgettable Grishams (The… summat or other…) left their by, probably, my sister-in-law, then the last Ian Rankin, saying farewell to DI Rebus (perhaps). On the plane on the way home I rifled through The Elements of User Experience by Jesse James Garrett, largely because I’m a big geek and these things interest me (if they interest you too give it a look, it’s a smart book).
Alas I didn’t get to listen to much in the way of music because the cable I took over to charge the iPod Nano wouldn’t charge my iPhone! I’m guessing that’s because my Nano is 4 years old and the cable specifications have changed but… no music for a week!! Agony. Still it did mean I had more quiet times in which to contemplate… well.. all sorts of everything and plenty of nothing.
It was all very relaxing if I do say so.
Which I do.
In fact I just did. Do pay attention.
In other news… there is no other news!
How the hell are you anyway? What ya been up to? Anything new with you? Any revelations? (aside from John Sargeant leaving Strictly obv.) Come on, what was THE defining blog moment in the past 7 days?
