O.A.P.

Saturday, 24 March 2012

I'm in Malaga. Whoop whoop! I'm here due to flatmate three (who I've rarely mentioned, because she's a bit interweb shy - it's a shame, because she's cracking), whose grandparents kindly gave us a week in their timeshare for her twenty-first Birthday, and our little pad is beyond my wildest dreams. Why, you may ask? 

It's in a retirement village.

This is excellent for several reasons. (1) It has crazy golf. For free. (2) It has those mobility chairs everywhere, so I can kiss goodbye to climbing in and out of the swimming pool or walking up and down stairs for a week. (3) I don't have to fight my usual urges to dress like a slightly eccentric, hermaphroditic old aged pensioner. 

Hat - Topshop; Sunflower Garland (just seen) - the Earl Mountbatten Hospice Charity; Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters
 Cardigan - Glamourous; Shirt and Collar Tips - Blue Rinse; Leggings - Zara; Loafers - Russell and Bromley
So it won't be the most glamourous holiday, but after what seemed like a particularly long term, I rather like the idea of being out here, playing giant chess with three of my wonderful friends, and shocking old men with my short shorts. If we're feeling particularly mental, it's only a ten minute walk into town.

The weather is set to pick up over the next few days, so my outfits may have to become slightly less senile and slightly more exposing, if I'm to work on my tan. Why oh why didn't I just stick to my holiday diet?

According to my Twitter feed, today is a glorious day in the U.K. I hope you all made the most of it?

Mona.

  1. Enjoy your holidays! It sounds perfectly bizarre (if you know what I mean!) It is beautiful here in Hampshire today but I'd still trade you for Malaga!
