Headway

Barcelona! Such a beautiful horizon

Barcelona! Such a beautiful horizon

What a horrible winter. Cold affects my head in ways that mean I feel like I have a flu, hangover and drunk at the same time. I had a chest infection in February that lasted a whole month. Scotland in winter with head trauma are not the best combination. The company I work with has an office in Barcelona so an opportunity not to pass up I booked a Ryanair flight, let go of various commitments, packed a couple of suitcases and last week come out here. What a difference the heat makes, yes it's uncomfortable to be sticky and sweats all the time but it does my head wonders. For the first time in years I want to read technical books at the weekend rather than take time to recover, so nice to have extra mental energy. And the €3 bottles of cava are a nice extra. Only thing I have to remember is to carry a water bottle to drink every 5 minutes.

They even have a slide in the shape of a dragon! You just couldn't ask for more.

Barcelona is on my list of places to visit because never met anyone who didn't like it. But heat does me in so let me know when I should go to find it like a pleasant early British summer. Enjoy yourself in all that sunshine, beauty and reading technical books at weekend (technophobe's idea of hell!).

Sound like bliss, chilly nights here in Scotland and predicted temps this week don't get higher than 16 deg.

Enjoy the warm in your bones :-) and try not to mix up the bottles of water and cava!

Oh how amazing. It was the 'Scottish winter weather' that caused Victoria's accident but hey ho. We took her to Malta once she had been home from rehab a couple of months and it did her the world of good. Hope you continue to improve and well done for being brave enough to take such a big step. Wishing you all the very best. Jo xx

oddly i tend to get headakes from higher temps and can at time make my head quite tender, ie my head hurts as it moves so quite uncomfortable, but I always liked lower rather than higher temps.

looks lovely but I suspect I'd be fit for nothing but lying on a bed, i'm struggling at low 20's...
