My sorries to everyone: no meaty update this month. I went abroad for a friend’s wedding; then I went away for my own summer holiday; and now I’m going abroad for another friend’s wedding(!) Quite literally three weeks abroad in a six week period: the most I’ve ever wayfared. This high-roller lifestyle means I haven’t really had time to write a good blogpost. So sorry about that!

Just one thought.

Madonna had a song called Holiday. And one of my favourite bands, Vampire Weekend, also have a song so named. Both are American.  Any chance that Saxon “holiday” might one day push out Latin “vacation” in North America?
