After a fabbo week up north in the sun (as Nanuk points out, when you are down under - north is warm, south is cold - go figure !) I am all lolled out.
No vodkatinis either. I went instead for the straight tequila slammer - salt and lemon or lime essential. It's great stuff and numbs the constant yelling from the 2 year old quite nicely. After 20 or more you just slide to the floor in a heap. (Joking, I am joking people).
And being the tropics - the lushness of the landscape is a salve to the soul. Rather like I imagine Eden must have been. Althought apparently it wasn't the apple that God got cross about, it was Eve's incessant tequila slammers and nights out clubbing with the snake.
Anyhow am back in the land of the living. And looking forward to summer once I stop torturing the washing machine with endless loads of holiday clothes.
