I am missing Sitges.
I especially miss the early evening promenade walk, when what seems like the whole population (with their dogs in tow) come out to amble under the palm trees, and chat and greet in the warm autumn sunshine.
The Spanish have the right idea. Their "outsides" become mere extensions of their living rooms, The promenade is simply another "room" to be shared and enjoyed without worry or selfishness.
Of course the Spanish have better weather
Autumn in this country means wetness and cold
Autumn in this country means hiding away in your own living rooms
and autumn means dark evenings, The return of the Downton Abbey pantomime and the prospect of 14 celebrities learning to ballroom dance on Strictly Come Dancing.

Last night Jerry Hall thoroughly enjoyed herself as she vamped it up in true drag queen/Tallulah Bankhead style as Strictly dragged it's sorry arse back to the small screen and tonight sees the lovely Matthew Crawley boring the tits off Lady Mary in Downton.
|Delightfully Boring ( bet they shag like little rabbits though)|
The Brits are now all set for Autumn
We disappear into our living rooms during those dark evenings
and watch the television.
Perhaps we will experience an Indian summer?
Perhaps with global warming the beach Promenade down in Prestatyn will suddenly sprout palm trees and will allow for the spotty drug addled youth of the town to throw away their hoodies to play half naked volleyball in the sewage free sand........

Of course September and October will be freezing, wet and miserable...and of course I am such a hypocrite when I say that the goggle box will not have some "pull" for me as Winter approaches
In 4 weeks time The Walking Dead series 3 returns...
there is nothing like a zombie massacre to lighten those dark days before Christmas me thinks
ps two new characters may be joining the field population very soon! I am off to see "them" on Tuesday!!!!(watch this space) you may be surprised
