Buenas Tardas from Madrid Mr H. have yet to see the outside of the hotel but am being taken out for dinner tonight.Mini bar prices, outrageous, 6 euros for 40 gramms of Pringles, being Scottish a 40g tub doesn't constitute a snack, not even a mouthful. I bet crack is cheaper.Will hopefully be imbibing some Xoriguer Gin Mahon later on.
Top stuff Drewster! Blog comments from you in Madrid! I am honoured. Enjoy!
PS: DO NOT MESS WITH THE MINI BAR.
I'm drinking a nice cup of coffee after a day on the beach. In the UK not overseas unfortunately. Nowt wrong with that but it would be nice to be somewhere else.
I'm off it today. Slow moving hangover and all that. Too much red vin and Aldi's version of Pimm's while watching this with Mrs M last night..
3 x Friday night pre-train-home pints to kill the pain of watching the England renaissance, starring Tommy Cooper as manager. Drew has the plum draw tonight. Just hope that crack whore puts his underpants back on after his 'paella with a difference'. I've a bottle of Bristol Cream to find and finish!!
Hmmm....thought you were 'off it Mon-Thurs' Mond? ARREST THAT MAN!See, we feel for you Drewster - all alone in the capital of Spain, whilst Smoni screws his thermos top back on and Dickie uncorks the - GAGS! - HBC.
Me, I've had had a v.nice fish and chip supper with Mrs H. Quelques vins blancs, just to be polite.
I swapped Friday for Thursday - back on it tomoz though..
Oh, you're allowed to do that? I didn't know.
I bet Dean did it all the time.
Excellent Friday night choice, sir. As ever.
It's all about home-made Cassis - ideally it should probably wait until christmas but it looks and smells lovely and purple already so I thought I'd give it a go.
Hola Mr H.Had the best Bloody Mary ever today at Terminal 5, cost a fucking fortune but was the business. BA have become right stingy with their booze, luckily I had the where with all to buy a couple of 1/2 bottles of vina sol at Barajas, so when the air stewardess told me that a complimentary drink meant one it was okay as I had my carry oot and proceeded to drink it and to think a couple of weeks ago I was sticking up for them against wee willie wanky walsh
I bet it wasn't more expensive than the most expensive bellini in the world I had on the south bank a few weeks ago. Utterly blissfully lovely but stupidly expensive. I don't know how my mum afforded it.
A good, strong cocktail at an airport is a fine thing, and hang the expense, says I.
PS: I like a Vina Sol, also!
Vina Sol is great.L is none too pleased as I am pished tonight, poor women had to pick me up from the airport when I demanded a tandoori mixed grill.I feel a sunday rant coming on about crap brittish design, Terminal 5 as oppossed to cool european sophistication, Barajas terminal 4 but I may wake up in the morning and think better of it.
