Interlude....

Dios mio, my blog is becoming like our days in august here....slow, merely inactive. I wish I could say "hot" too but not really and I apologize to my dear readers for not having come back on friday as I said to post more pics of Barcelona. Friday saw me half busy half lazy, then off we went for drinks and a concert. Saturday saw me sleepy and entirely lazy until the evening when a friend turned up and off we went to a party from which I've returned today. That is I shameless extended my stay and abused my friend's generous hospitality ! But tell me, honestly, if your friends are adorable hosts who serve you English breakfast in the morning served with a highly refreshing bloody mary and insist you stay a bit more and then a bit more...and tell you that in the evening, we'll prepare mojitos and grilled octopus, can you really say no ? Especially, if the hammock or sofa next to the swimming pool invites you for a siesta, after reading one of your host's fabulous Taschen coffee tables books on all types of interiors. So, this is what I have been doing until this morning : enjoying the Andalusian lazy hours.....
enjoying my luck really....and summer is so quickly gone that after all it's only justice to indulge in its simple pleasures, I'm sure you'd agree...

I couldn't agree more! In fact, I don't think I would have left that hammock until the last day of Summer!

After reading this post and staring at that hammock (which is hanging beautifully somewhere in your country), I am EXTREMELY jealous.

Así se debe pasar el fin de semana.

Tell you what, I fancy some grilled octopus meself, really. I could murder a whole English breakfast now, if you ask me. And I'll pass on the bloody Mary (no, I'm not cussing the legendary queen of the Scots) becuase I'm teetotal, if not, I could do with some of that, too. And the hammock, I love me hammocks, I do.

Greetings from London.

Oh Lala, if you can afford such luxury, then by all means...eat, drink and be merry for mañana we'd do it all over again.:-)
Ah mojitos!
There is a Cuban-fusion bistro here in SoHo called Ideya. They make the best mojito!
Salud from SoHo to Andalusia!
