We woke up in Portugal, and went for a swim in the pool. After, we hit the road, and headed to a mall. There we ate and shopped around for a little. We all had sandwiches with tomato, pesto and mozzarella. From there, we headed back to our little house in Southern Spain. We had pizza we bought the previous day ...
... Bees are missing me, three points from the last four games, off the top of the table and struggling with Bristol now ahead of us and Grimsby catching both up, I need to get back and do my bit. Still, we only have three weeks at home before we go away again, this time for a week in Turkey, going to Antalya and then up into capadoccia, where it's now -7 at night in the ...
