David is married!! And he and Christina are safely on their...whatever it is they're doing. And the party here is still going, but I am old and tired, so I came inside amid shrieks of happiness and cheer (not because I was leaving...)

Last night was the bachelor party and it was...interesting. How come it was David's bachelor party and they still kept buying ME lapdances. Is it because I turn red? I was Not Amused. There was a barely clad girl dancing over me and all I could think was 'I wonder if she gets cold when she does this in the winter? I should give her a blanket.' Which I don't think is the point. Thomas, however, had the night of this life and he said announced "There should always be bachelor parties" rather loudly to everyone. He didn't get a feather boa this time, though. Woe is Thomas.

This is going to be long. I shall cut it just for you. Today was the wedding. )

Today was mad. That's...kind of the only way to describe it. This morning we decided to undertake an expedition to the museum of Valencia. It's....incredible. Look. Christina wanted to accompany us, as she and Aly are both British Museum alums. It was amusing to hear them comparing notes. "Our displays are so much better." And then I said that the people who worked at the British Museum were so much more beautiful too, and they both kissed my cheek!! Peter wins! Anyway, Christina was not the only one that decided to come along. Svetlana wanted to see it as well, and thus, we dragged Thomas along for the ride. He was Not Pleased to be taken away from his ocean. In fact, he made quite a point to look grotty and wear the most touristy things he could find. And a hat. Because days in the sea water make Thomas's hair all curly! Hee! Anyway, he started making the best faces while we were waiting (forever) for a tram. He looked quite annoyed. And then Svetlana befriended some American tourists and she informed them rather loudly "This is Thomas! He is my impotent boyfriend! And that is why Peter is my baby daddy!" And then Thomas looked at me like this. Poooor Thomas. And he insists it was because he was hungry, but I know the truth. Emma, meanwhile, is confused because she did not know Svetlana was having my child (oops...)

Anyway...in the afternoon, Lydia went with the older girls to go shopping. They were rather successful and brought back some wonderful things. And some holes in some ears. But Lydia looks very grown up and beautiful. Then came meeting family members I've never met before. Cousin Vincenza, who is a 17 year old who must be some sort of supermodel. And for some reason she wouldn't let go of me. That is when I realised I picked up a bit of crazy down in St. Sebastians. I do not like people touching me if I don't know them. She's Aly's family, and I was terrified she was going to jab my side with a hot poker. Anyway, then I met her father, Cousin Alejandro and he was confused when Jacinta introduced me as her son. He said "David, what have you done with your hair?" and I think David was a tad insulted at that. Me, I just giggled. But then he hugged me and I had a panic attack. But I hid it well, thank you! Hopefully I'll get over that whole...DON'T TOUCH ME thing. Probably when lovely family members don't hot poker me in the side. Or...anywhere else.

Ahem. Best part of the night? During David's rehearsal dinner, Brian decided to be an arse. He walked up to David and inquired as to why he was getting married to a woman if he's gay. He could take a hint from 'the lesbos' instead. And Thomas, who had had enough today, just punched him in the arm. No hesitation. And Brian looked shocked. And everyone applauded Thomas and he's now been accepted as a cousin too!

Impotence and all.

David gets married tomorrow!!

Well! Today was a wonderful day! My sister proposed to Emma. She said yes, of course. They're off 'celebrating'. And David's getting married on Tuesday! Such excellent and happy news. We took a day off from touristing too and so I spent all afternoon watching Thomas do this )

Today, Lydia and I talked and she's so grown up it scares me a little! She wants to get her ears pierced. And considering everything she's come through, I think she deserves to make that decision. She's excited because she gets to go shopping with Hope and Tasha and Zoe and Isabella. Meanwhile Daddy sits home and has a minor flipout that she'll come back with a mohawk or something. But she's proven that she's mature beyond her years and she deserves to have fun. And considering that all of her siblings are younger with the exception of Tasha, she also deserves to spend some time with older people who aren't parental units. I'm so proud of her.

And David. And Emma. And Liz. And I love Aly so very much.

Miguel, however, keeps trying to give me tequila. "For celebrate!" He is very nice and everything, but I currently do not love Miguel. And I wish I had some tequila. But wouldn't that just ruin a perfectly wonderful holiday. (I'll just keep reminding myself of that every 20 seconds).

Aly told me to do the photo thing. So that is what I am doing. By the way, Spain rocks. And I am having the best time, and cannot properly articulate how wonderful it is. Well, not without being a little naughty.

Valencia! And things! )

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!
