Bonjour and all that jazz!

Hi guys, I’m back – did you miss me? I’m sorry I didn’t blog whilst I was over there but, I don’t know, it just didn’t seem right; I was too busy having such a good time that I actually forgot to come and say hello, isn’t that mean of me?

But anyway, how was it you ask? Great! Mum and I had a lovely time and the weather was better than expected for October – we even had one day of pure sunshine; blissful! Surprisingly we didn’t actually do a lot apart from visiting some old haunts and walking a lot. I don’t really like walking but the weather was good and I did get some great photos out of it so I can’t complain too much. I’d actually forgotten how romantic Jersey was with it’s country roads, deep French influence (95% of road names are French as are people’s surnames) and the stunning scenery.

We came back Saturday morning and it already feels like we’ve never been away though thankfully I’ve come back to a busy week on my social calender so lots to look forward to. I spent Saturday night with my family and some friends up on Dartmoor (National Park with small villages, wild animals, no street lights and plenty of ghost stories) for a bonfire/fireworks and god roast and we had a good giggle; would definitely do it again next year.

Yesterday was spent catching up on some much-needed sleep and movie watching, tonight I’m going to dinner with my Couch Surfing group again, tomorrow night I have a date (I’ll keep you posted) and Wednesday night I’m going out with some girlies for dinner…so all in all a very good week for my soul but crap week for the old bank balance lol.

Well, I think that’s about you all caught up for now…
Aloha!
