Justin in Barcelona - Enable images to view
I'm back! I've been a bit absent over the past couple of weeks. I had a bit of a run-in with a tick (loads of them around at the moment) and I spent a few days with the family in Italy, which was great.

Now, enjoy this week's stories and remember to keep sending us your articles to publish. Have a great week.
