The rain in Spain

I can be a bridesmaid too with my old Glastonbury flower garland, right? Especially with my Primark dress. Oh, and distinct lack of any make up.


D is off camping with his charming brothers and a couple of their friends. I only hope they don't get thrown off the camp site, knowing them. D rather rudely rang about 2 minutes to 11 so I had to shush him up to watch the ceremony, of course. I'm no royalist but interesting to watch all the same, mainly to see everyone's frocks (and George Osborne looking very bored).

On other news I think I've decided on my next course of action, once I leave this underpaid job complete with charming bosses who undervalue their staff and don't believe in statutory sick pay (and nonchalantly think they can pay us on Saturday when pay day should have been yesterday). I'm looking to do a Leonardo scheme internship, hopefully in Barcelona. The scheme lets Europeans travel to another country and finds them an internship- some of them pay for your flights there, insurance and accommodation, and some of the positions are paid or you get spending money. (There isn't a catch as far as I'm aware...). I would be keen to do one for an NGO or charity, or do some sort of e-marketing, writing articles type thing. Watch this space.

Anyway, I am off to Spain tonight until Tuesday night, Malaga then Cordoba, as one of my friends is teaching out there. Checked the weather forecast and it's supposed to rain...

  1. Gorgeous dress, you have the loveliest clothes. Good luck with all your work plans!

    In response to your question, I unfortunately didn't see Peter Rabbit...he was probably hiding somewhere hehe. Oh and I just made a twitter, and am following you:)

  2. That is such a beautiful dress!!! It makes me think of something Audrey Hepburn would wear :D

    I can't imagine what the commotion is like in England at the moment, there's enough fuss being made about the wedding here as it is! Personally I don't really care about the Royals but I've enjoyed having a good laugh at some of the awful hats worn by some of the fashion victim wedding guests :P

    Hope you have a lovely sojourn in Spain, take lots of photos!

  13. eeeeek! I love your dress! And good luck with the new job seeking!

    and yes, I thought the wedding (and the dress) was amazing too! (and I'm not that much of a royalist.... our family were watching it drinking coffee whilst doing the patio at the same time)... doh!! oh well, at least we did have a bevvy whilst watching the one show (does that count?!) as I was busy doing DIY....

    p.s. I think the whole country has gone royal wedding mad, on the local news there was only approx. 5 minutes of non-wedding news (including Sports news)!
    p.p.s. thanks for the comment on my blog!

  25. Oh, I do wish I was brave like you and had it in me to just pick up and travel, although being utterly broke probably has something to do with that... I am working on it though. Good on you for not settling, I know you deserve better. I also just adore your flower crown, I have always wanted one so lovely as that!
