Presumably that's why a student house now has a spare room! Nudge nudge wink wink...

Have a lovely trip. Hope your son doesn't do noisy sex and the weather is kind.

Husband is not putting a foot wrong at the moment, is showing thought & is actually thinking beyond sport & the usual men skank stuff.

I was even gifted a book and a card for having my back give out painfully.

This bodes well for this weekend.

Fratton is OK in places, albeit a little far from the Uni - it's Somerstown or Buckland that are proper rough.

I'd keep away from Kingston Park though, all sorts of wrong seems to go on there.

Have a great time despite the student accommodation. I bet they'll all be tip-toeing around, not wanting to get on the wrong side of you!!
Say hi to M&S, Boots and Monsoon for me please.

Though judging by the ridiculous price of a pint last time I was back home, it's probably a tenner for a bottle now

Sitting in Dublin airport, eating a proper breakfast while waiting for my Gatwick flight. Feels like the middle of the night, but who cares - I have sausages, black pudding, white pudding, and of course bacon.

You had me at "proper" breakfast, you lost me at "puddings" but you pulled me back with BACON!

Perfect start to a vacation!

You can have my black/white pudding (don't care for the texture) but the rest sounds excellent. They do a very good cooked breakfast in Dublin airport.

They do indeed. It was very much appreciated a few years ago when we flew over for a wedding.
