Don't mention the Armada...

My small niece is looking forward to her holidays.


"You can come with us," she tells my mum.

"No, I can't," explains my mum, "I don't have a passport any more."

"You don't need a passport. We're going to English Spain, not Spanish Spain."

I love the Empire. It's almost like we never lost it.

Pat: I suspect a bag of sweets were involved somewhere in the conversation.

Savannah: oh yes. I daren't print some of the stories!

nota bene: it's the Canaries, I think the locals might object to "Spanish Spain" in any case.

Scarlet: we've had non-stop equatorial warmth up here lately.
