Hi folks, Here we are again, peeping at each other's desks. I'll show you mine quickly and get it over with:
This was my desk last night. Not much going on. I bought another photo frame for the lovely card Bridget sent me recently. (I managed to get a matching frame.) Bridget had sent me a postcard of Aboriginal art which I loved so much I framed it! Then she sent me another one (the one on the left)
and that is now duly framed too. Thanks Bridget!
The pile in the foreground are more postcards that I have received recently, which I use as subjects to write my daily blog.
Look what's under my desk:
She is a little stray kitty that lives on our building plot ever since she was a tiny kitten. One of the other stray cats had taken her under her wing and she survived. The other cats have moved on but she has stayed. She lives on the roof terrace and we feed her daily. Yesterday we had an appointment with a charity that neuters cats. We enticed her into the travel 'catcot' thingy, and off we went. We have a pick-up utility truck with a cover over the back. Well, to cut a long story short, kitty managed to get out of the box somehow, when we stopped for a drink an hour into our journey (the flap wasn't secured properly it appears). There was no way we could safely get her back in. Feral cats won't let you handle them, so she might have bolted as soon as we lowered the tailgate and we would have lost her in the middle of nowhere. So we cancelled the appointment and turned back. We decided to keep her indoors and she really loves it. She has found this mat by the bed and has been sitting there contently all evening. She didn't seem to be stressed at all by her 'adventure' in the back of the truck.
What's happening here in Spain? Well this weekend there was a charity paella organised for a little boy called Santi to raise money for a special treatment for him in Madrid. People paid 3 Euros for a plate of paella.
This is in the main square of our village. The paella (a rice dish) is cooked over a wood fire. The building in the back ground is the town hall.
Here in the background is a small church. (there is a bigger one in the next street).
This is looking up the High Street. We live at the end of that street.
See how people queue up to get their portion and the volunteers spooning up. I think there must have been a few thousand people. I don't know how much money they raised. But it certainly was well attended.
That's it from me today. If you are wondering what this is all about, visit Julia at Stamping Ground who leads us into all this desk snooping....
Have a good week all of you,
