How are you all today? I hope you have been spared the dreaded 'lurgy'.
I have lots to smile about this week. First of all I'm feeling much better. Since Wednesday really, I am functioning normally. I've been ill since the beginning of December and was really getting a bit fed up. So praise God, I am much better.
Yesterday I spent the day in my craft room again and did another double page with photos of one of our trips last year. It's wonderful to potter about and craft. Smiles all day!
The name of the place/city is Cartagena.
A beautiful city. We liked it very much. I found out that there was a mining museum nearby and on the photo bottom left you can see us donning our hard hats before the tour through the mines.
We had to book a tour and on the day we joined a group of 15 people. Unfortunately there wasn't a guide that spoke English, and a year ago my Spanish was a lot more limited, so that was a shame. But as I'm a geologist, I did understand quite a bit just by looking at the rock and listening and then putting two and two together as they say.
Wednesday was an exciting day as my cooker arrived. That certainly made me smile!
My hubby is building a ground floor flat under our house and we have got as far as the kitchen. The carpenter has built and put in the units and now the cooker has arrived:
It is a simple gas cooker with a gas oven too. Electricity is very expensive here and in winter very unrelyable. We try to use as little power as possible. Our hot water comes from solar panels. Luckily the sun shines every day, but for those few days a year that it doesn't there is an immersion heater built in.
We are now waiting for the granite work tops and then said kitchen will be operational.
This is what it looks like from a distance:
The floor is tiled but the tiles look like wood.
This is the front door:
The outside still needs a lot of work, but the door is in.
As it is Friday Smiles I will find some funnies and link up with Annie at A Stitch In Time.
Well, they are not really funny, but animal pictures that made me smile...
This is a baby flamingo at its mother's feet.
That is it from me for today. Have a really nice weekend,
