It's been a while since I wrote a personal update, what with the madness of Armchair BEA and then the stress of the first week back at work after the half term holiday. I wasn't around much on the blog this week as things are hectic at work, to say the least. I'm counting down the weeks until the summer hols (six and a half weeks to go!).
The half term break was lovely, though.

The hotel is in Russell Square, which is our favourite place to stay in London, due to it's close proximity to the British Museum and the bookshops on Charing Cross Road. We're planning to have his birthday meal at Wahaca, a Mexican restaurant we've both wanted to go to for ages.
