Liz Lemon has improved her skills

Not sure if I should be proud or worried that Liz Lemon's hunting skills?

She has finally caught a bird.

Moments ago I could hear a strange skwarking noise getting louder and louder. When I went to the front door Lemon was there with a good sized bird in her mouth.

Well done Lemon.

But please be careful birds!

Also, do you know how hard it is to brush up feathers?

Brief but worth it

So I've finished my day of travelling. I can never make my mind up about travelling? Before I start I'm excited. Who will I see on my adventure? What will I see on my travels? Today flying back I spotted that the plane I was in over took another plane.

But towards the end I'm always exhausted. Even having a mini siesta out on the balcony, in the Sun, I'm still now a little tired. (Although that might have more to do with drinking vodka until 1am and getting up 4 hours later my flight.)

Visiting Runcorn, my new old home, was a lot more enjoyable then I had hoped. I was pretty much packed and busy every day with very little time to myself, so much so that I missed out on Doctor Who. (No one tell me what happened). 
Which is what I needed after a month of solitude. 

There was the (almost) brawlrum, DJ Hero and Louis night. Finding out lots of new bars in Liverpool to play in and ones that no longer existed (or had moved). Although slightly annoyed that my friend had some unwritten-unsaid-one-drink-only-in-each-bar-rule going on. And of course The Wedding.
Highlight was getting my dad to do his own Arrested Development "chicken dance." Which you can see here, the right way up and although you might not be able to hear him he is saying "Clucky-clucky-clucky".

But just generally catching up with family, old friends, surprise last minute catch ups with longer lost friends is what just what I needed.
Unfortunately I didn't get to see everyone I wanted to. Those that I did meet up with I wanted to spend more time with them. 
But I know that when I return not every day is going to be as packed as the last 10. But if it's half as packed as the last 10 then I'll be pleased.

The problem is I now have 5 more weeks in the Fortress of Solitude (broken up by a mini visit by my mum) before heading back to UK. Let's hope that nothing bad happens to Runcorn in the mean time.

What I'll miss; Sunsets

With around four more weeks living time here in Spain I thought I'd take the opportunity to show you what I'll miss.

With the main source of light coming from the huge patio doors I always see beautiful sunsets. Everyday without fail. Back in England I'll be lucky to see a handful of these.

Nerja '79?

Is this how Nerja looked 30 years ago?

From a different angle

No matter how much equipment you purchase (for these particular photos a few hundred pounds worth of camera, another few hundred for lens and filter) sometimes photos look best when taken from a different perspective.

In this case we gave my dads Nikon D90 to some child on the beach, who was supposed to be handing on flyers for the local Wai Wai Wok but was instead asking to use the camera.

Here are his results; some of the face from down on the beach.
