We arrived in Lincoln mid afternoon and laboured our roundabout way up to the old Bishops Palace to find our rather marvellous accommodations...

I'm so childish. I want to caption things with lines like - Pisa, a piece of piss. Moving swiftly on - I arrived late afternoon and after unpacking, I walked into town across the railway lines (don't worry, there's a subway!). The place I'm staying is really nice, only two years old so it doesn't show on google street view, but at first sight the area looks a little rough. There's a scrap yard or something almost next door and a wall full of the messy kind of graffiti. But it was really quiet last night, and the walk into town is so easy, it's awesome.

Anyhow. Picspam time! Artyfarty and random shots with bicycles follow, so be warned.

There's a few of you ole ex-Colonials on my Flist so here's a little fun SPN thanksgiving gift to y'all.

Poor Dean, perhaps this was the wrong day to get bewitched?

And in the spirit of thankfulness generally - thanks to everyone on my Flist for being such a great bunch of peeps.

Travels in Italy with my mum and my hubby - not a match made in heaven! But we've survived thus far, and tomorrow I see them off to the airport in the hopes Paul won't be too impatient with my Mum's slowness and deafness!

We've done a lot of walking since Monday! It's been very pleasant to be able take our time over things though. We've been here so often that there's no longer any rush to cram in this site or that, because we've seen mostly everything we ever craved to see at least once or twice before. That didn't mean we couldn't find some new and interesting things to fill our time with this visit though - in between the pizza rustica and gelato, of course.

So here's a few of my personal highlights from this time round.

We made it home very late last night (or rather early this morning) and now we both feel like we have jet lag - which is impossible from a European flight, but never mind!
A few last piccies from me and then normal service will be resumed.

Got to the stadium early to catch the start of the men's Heptathlon's final day - that was a good competition, really quite close, so the 1000m final event actually could have changed the results. I love it when that happens in the multi-events, it makes it so much more exciting. Our posh seats were invaded later on by two sets of parents - both their kids were running in the 1500m, on in the women's and one in the men's. The girl, Rosie, didn't do too badly but only managed 6th, but the lad, Chris O'Hare worked his cotton socks off and got a bronze medal. He then came up and joined us so he could give his mum his flowers - cute.
Here he is with his very hoarse but proud parents.Read more... )

Today at breakfast we met up with Brit friends we haven't seen for about 3-4 years which was lovely. Breakfast in this hotel is interesting - we have potato salad with chopped gherkins, egg mayonnaise with chopped peppers, scrambled egg with bacon, salad bits, rice pudding with sliced apple and raisins (which is delicious) and lots of different breads, smoked cheeses and other stuff I haven't really looked at because it's meat.
