The temperature in Barcelona was approaching 40c on Friday, which shouldn't be all that bad for a Mediterranean city with ample air conditioning right next to the sea, but what do you know? It's humid, sweaty hell.

At the moment, I am in Cork! It is all Irish and awesome. I am working from my B&B room (we can't travel in luxury all the time, darlings), but shall have to go down to breakfast soon, for I can smell Irish breakfasty goodness.

I really like it here - it's all green and lovely and cold. I even had to wear a coat yesterday! Exciting times. The people are also really nice, really funny. I got chatted up in the pub last night, even though there were inevitable commiserations on my being English.

Sorry, I meant to say more, but... the smell of that bacon, you know...

I turned twenty-six at the weekend, an event I've been dreading as the evil thirty figure draws ever closer. I wasn't in much of a mood to celebrate that, so on Saturday, I was in Dublin celebrating my last day of being twenty-five and awesome. I was with family and friends in a bar comfortably away from the chaos of Temple Bar where there was a live band. I had lots of fun, let my hair down (literally and metaphorically) and had a rendition of Seven Drunken Nights dedicated to me.

My first act upon turning twenty-six as the hours rolled into Sunday morning was to go to the loo and vomit. Classy, huh? My only defence is that I was trying to relive my twenty-first birthday. Incidentally, I am twenty-one forever, now, and don't you forget it.

Work's been more gentle this week than usual, so that's pretty good. Attended Russian class yesterday and was horrified at all these absurd grammatical rules suddenly assailing the class (as [livejournal.com profile] hobbitblue predicted).

I'm just coasting along this week, looking forward to an arty day out in Liverpool on Saturday with [livejournal.com profile] jaffacakequeen and [livejournal.com profile] kristoferllama. I've dropped alcohol from my diet (well, till Saturday) and I'm eating pulses and fish and all those boring things. It must be my age. >:

I'm going to join just about every other person ever here when I say this (well, apart from the British Government...ahahaa) but I love Ireland. I love it to its gorgeous green depths, oh yes. Can I go back now? :(

I'll update more about it all later, after the ZOMG England-Portugal and waah France-Brazil matches.

EDIT: Fellow Countrymen! THERE ARE ONLY TWO SYLLABLES IN 'ENGLAND' kthnx
