Hi Peeps! Happy Tuesday to you all.
I'm very excited as I have just woken up in a hotel in Madrid! Madrid is the capital of Spain, obviously a scarily big city. It is the first time we visit Madrid and the reason being that I need a new passport and the Dutch embassy is here. In a couple of hours I will attending my appointment at the embassy. I'll probably be out all day so won't be able to comment until tonight. Sorry.
My postcard today is from Latvia:
As you might know, I love windows and doors, and this girl Alisa was kind enough to find me a card with doors on it. Aren't they beautiful. Riga is the capital of Latvia. No, I have never been there.
The stamp is about the ice hockey championships:
So, yesterday morning, we got up early, a friend drove us to the station (55km away) and we caught the 8:48 train to Madrid. I love train journeys and the prospect of having to sit and let myself be driven for more than 5 hours appeals to me. I have my knitting with me. I'm knitting socks on circular needles so it is small and fits in my handbag. Also in my bag is a book of Killer Sudokus which I love. We both have our Kindles (e-books) with us so no time to get bored.
I have just finished reading The Churchill Factor by Boris Johnson. It is non-fiction (obviously) as it is about the influence that Churchill had on the course of history. I loved it. Boris is a journalist (who went into politics) who writes in an easy and entertaining style. I can recommend it. (It's not stuffy).
I'm going to try to link up with Elizabeth and Bluebeard at Altered BookLover for T for Tuesday. I say 'try' as I am on a tablet that doesn't readily do what I want it to do. It is one learning curve too steep for this grandma. I'll do my best. If you are reading this then I have obviously succeeded.....
To qualify for T for Tuesday I need a photo with a drink in it:
I have taken a photo in our hotel room where we have a travel kettle and a few plastic mugs, a few different herbal tea bags and several packets of Cup-a-Soup. The photo won't upload! I don't know why... sorry.
I'm throwing in the towel! And am going to link up with Elizabeth. Elizabeth, I can't copy and paste so I won't be able to give you the direct link. Again apologies.
I'm going to stop now as I am r3ally getting frustrated!
Happy T-Day everyone,
