“JBomb photo bombing mum”.

Last week (6th to 13th July) I was on the beautiful Balearic island of Ibiza with family for the second year. If you have read this ramble before you will know that other than “Doctor Who”, “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” I love to travel.

“Its Gatwick, not a mirror world”.

Over the last couple of years, I have been trying to get back to Tofo, Mozambique. One of the most beautiful places on the planet I have ever seen! However, after 3yrs I’m starting to realise that maybe that particular dream will never become a reality. That thought really makes me very sad.

“Loving the villa. Out and about with my little friends”.

After the recent trip (and of course last year’s visit) I have decided to look at the possibilities of spending an extended period in the Mediterranean, more specifically the Ibiza. One issue, i don’t speak Spanish but surely I can learn, there must be room for basic Spanish in the soggy mass I call a brain!

“Mars or the Mediterranean?”.

The family hire a villa in the Saint Joan de Labritja, out in the sticks with the nearest neighbours were a good couple of hundred metres in any direction. None of us are really party people. There is nothing not too like about the island. Is it strange that I particularly love the red Martian like dust / soil seen all over? The BIG question, could someone like me with no actual talent in anything exist in a place like that. Over the next few months I must think about my future.

“Everyone enjoyed the pool”.

For this week’s blog I thought I would trawl through the hundreds (and I really do mean hundreds) of pictures and choose ones I liked and write a line or two about them. Its either this or you’ll all have to come round and sit on my friend’s new sofa and bore you with a slide show going in detail about each snap. It’s up to you! If you’re reading this at work, you have the advantage of being paid to look at my holiday pictures.

“Fun in the sun and heat”.

As I mentioned at the start of this ramble, I love to travel. In a couple of weeks’ time I’m travelling with my baby (hope they don’t mind me calling them babies, there adults who are far more responsible than I am) sisters to visit Sri Lanka to see relatives. More about that nearer the time.

“Nothing to see in the skinny dipping picture. Please move along”.

At Gatwick Airport while sitting at the gate waiting for family to arrive. The reason we were separated is very boring. Don’t worry, it didn’t involve me being taken into a small room and probed with rubber gloves.

“A pair looking at Pairs”.

Standing next to me was a group of women clearly ready for a damn good time. A couple were talking about the fact that they had not brought any spare knickers. That conversation stopped when they noticed a group of men standing the other side of the gate / waiting room. Imagine the scene a pride of lions (the women) noticing a dazzle (according to the net) of defenceless Zebra’s (the men) wondering aimlessly around a watering hole. I almost felt sorry for the guys; it was going to be a messy weekend for some people!
