While most people were at the beach sunbathing, or avoiding jellyfish, Cristina and Inma were busy preparing to resit their EOI exams. Passing an exam requires effort and determination, an effective exam strategy, and a lot of practice. Consequently, I´m on cloud 9 to say that both Cristina and Inma passed their exams. It´s time to celebrate success!

Chewing the fat with friends, family members and strangers is a common pastime for most people. To chew the fat means to talk with someone in an informal and friendly way. For instance: Last weekend, my mates and I, sat in a bar and chewed the fat until the early hours.
Not so curiously, everyone has an opinion on what to drink when it´s boiling hot. And, obviously, the healthiest option would be something alcohol-free! However, indisputably, that can not be a serious suggestion, can it?
Anyway, after asking some mates to give me some advice the following is what they suggested. You should drink:
- A Jamie Oliver Cosmopolitan
- A James Bond Vesper
- A white wine spritzer
- A fuzzy or pierced navel
Please remember that I´m utterly hopeless in the kitchen, so in your opinion which of the above do you think is by far the easiest to make?
A cosmopolitan, or informally a cosmo, is a cocktail made with vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, and freshly squeezed lime juice or sweetened lime juice. It’s delicious!

Is the cosmopolitan Janette’s summer cocktail of 2018?
Well, the ‘Cosmo’ was very popular for the girls in the hit TV series, Sex and the City, and it has also been recommended by my football mate in England. However, I’m not sure I fancy this drink. What do you reckon, is this going to be the summer cocktail of Málaga?
Are you pulling my leg?
This is a common idiom used to respond to something we find unbelievable. For example, if a couch potato tells you that he or she completed a marathon, you might respond by saying: ‘Are you pulling my leg?’ because you think the situation is impossible. In addition, if you pull someone’s leg, this means you are trying to make someone believe something is true when it isn’t. We usually do this as a joke, i.e. in situations that aren’t very serious.
OMG Janette, I still don’t get it!! OK, OK, check out this definition.
