Hola, amigos! We're safely in Spain. Valencia to be exact. It's amazing here and I'm already completely relaxed. I know, marvel at the concept. But I had a nap. On a porch. In a swing! With Thomas (the baby one) in my lap and Aly leaning against me, and we dozed listening to the waves of the beach. Well, and the squeals of Hope and the not-baby Thomas as they splashed in the ocean.

Then I think I ate my weight in food, and Aunt Rosalia kissed me (noooooooooo) and I sat there like a moppet with Edward while Aly, Jacinta and David spoke to the cousins in rapidfire Spanish. Incredible, really. It made me remember our trilingual rehearsal dinner when Aly and I got married. Not that the Germans ever really talked. And Thomas and Robert spoke in Latin, just to be cheeky devils.

Anyway, I'm all relaxed and losing my point. Hi, we're safe and happy! And we have internet, even if Isabella is incredibly interested in what I'm doing over here. Tomorrow we're going to go see the Plaça de l'Ajuntament. Aly had to type that for me. I still can't even say it. But I'll take pictures!

Tonight, Isabella and Rosalia are insisting on taking care of the kids, so Aly and I are going out. It's going to be wonderful. We're going to have a date! In Spain! I might be excited.

I hope everything is going well for all of you!

Can't sleep. Too much to do. I packed and I squared everything away with the hospital and I made arrangements and I think I made myself crazy in the process but I still feel like there's things I should be doing and sleep isn't one of them.

Goddammit I can't wait to be on vacation. I think the last time I had a one of those was when Lydia turned eight and we went to York for three days and gorged ourselves on those little donuts. She made me play tea party and we had the most fantastic time. It was just us and we explored the little laneways and shops and I spoiled her positively rotten (shhh don't tell the church because I took a vow of poverty har har) and then I had to go back to Melk and I pouted for probably the next 3 years.

That was a nice story.

Still can't sleep.

So, I hear there's a drawing of me floating around that involves Pierre and Deirdre forcibly removing my head from my arse using my cane?

That's brilliant.

Though thank you for not actually trying that... Can I see the drawing? I'll trade you these pictures of Lydia attacking me after dressing me in godawful clothing. Don't ask where the clothing came from, she found it in the storage space. I shudder to think who purchased it.

Lydia kicks hard

Never ask Lydia if she's kissed Dylan

She's a feisty one. My girls are both home, by the way, and better for it. Lydia's going to continue taking riding lessons and Anna didn't bite me so let's just call it good.

Thomas is making me say this here, though I have to admit, I didn't put up much of an argument. I have a lot to apologise for, and believe me I plan on doing so. That being said, I think I've worked through the main issues at hand and I'll deal with the rest as they come.

My girls just arrived home, but they're far too tired to see anyone. I'll be seeing them tomorrow. Which is probably for the best, considering a certain massive hangover that won't just leave me alone.

Thank you to every single one of you, not only for not giving up on me, but also for being amazing incredible people and supporting each other through everything. I love you.

Thomas also says to say he loves you all as well, and that he's most likely leaving tonight, but he'll see you all sometime in the not to distant future. Don't let that worry you! He says he's sure to visit again.

I hope I see a lot of everyone soon. Forced isolation does tend to make one lonely and wanting company.

My last brace is coming off tomorrow morning, and then you can all laugh gleefully at me as I hobble about. My physical therapist says it is best if I walk as much as I can even though it is incredibly painful. It's better to be in pain now than to lose the ability to walk. I very much agree with that statement!

I haven't walked anywhere in a very long time. It will be nice to do so.

Just checking in to let everyone know that I had an appointment today and my right leg is pretty well healed. Apparently kneecaps and ankles heal faster than...upper leg bones I don't know the name of because I am not a doctor. The left leg will still need to be in plaster for a few more weeks, but this means I can get around on crutches for a little while at a time. Of course it also means I have to start physical therapy, which I believe is actually legalised torture but it's better than the alternative. It feels nice to not have to be in that chair all the time. Though Liz is constantly yelling at me because she thinks I'll overdo it.

Me? Overdo something? I have no idea what she's talking about!

I hope everyone is doing well.

Just checking in with everyone. I get the cast on my arm off in a few days and it will be replaced by a...thing. I am obviously not a doctor. But it will be a nice change. The girls are still loving school and everyday they bring me home charming examples of their work. Anna now has the multiplication tables mastered as far as 10. She's quite proud. Aly is still dealing with the insurance companies handeling the issues surrounding the burning down of her house. It's a long process, but she's doing rather well. I can help her with some things, but a lot of it is just listing the items that were lost and in that regard, I can't offer much assistance. Still, she's taking time off work and things will be dealt with soon. Hope, the newest addition to our household, is fitting in wonderfully. She's enjoying her new school and everything seems to be going well. Liz and Emma are quite enjoying being parents and they're running around the place glowing. Not literally, as then I'd worry.

How is everyone else doing?
