Tripping *

Boy, did I need that! Just had seven days of bliss with JJ. Now, JJ does the details in this relationship, so I'll leave the finer points to her. However, I have to say that Watergate Bay is one of - if not THE - most beautiful beaches I've ever been on. And its near neighbour in Porth is also gorgeous. And Porth's near neighbour of Lusty Glaze beach is too. Have dinner at Lusty Glaze beach as the sun is going down and you will know the definition of romantic. Particularly if you quickly get back over to Watergate with a cold bottle of wine and watch the sun go down.

There was more to this holiday than beaches of course because there were also some ace pubs, some beautiful countryside, lovely lovely villages and some rather scrumptious food. The fact that we went to have fish and chips in Paidstow (with its abundance of fish restaurants - mostly owned by Rick Stein) and left with our bellies empty will be passed over by this writer, but I'm sure that JJ can fill in the details.

Then, to leave Cornwall and head for the Cotswolds wasn't such a drag when we visited Wells and then arrived at our amazing hotel on the outskirts of Gloucester."A corner bath, it's got a corner bath," was the gasps behind me as we entered our hotel room.

And then to visit some lovely villages - Lower and Upper Slaughter, Oddington, Sheepsmore and Painswick - on our last day away was a great piece of icing on the cake.

Even a horrendous traffic jam as we left the M40 didn't spoil our evening in Windsor. A great pub and then a tremendous meal at an Italian restaurant - truly wonderful.

But it wasn't over because we had brilliant sunshine in London on Friday and decided to have picnic and sunbathing afternoon in Greenwich Park. A perfect end to a perfect week.

Back to work for me this morning - what a drag! Hey, but tomorrow night? It's up to Northampton as Millwall visit the Sixfields to put those northerners out of the League Cup. Bring it on!
