Good Morning, let your day begin with a smile.
Welcome to the T-Party hosted by Elisabeth and Bluebeard. And here I am with my blog about my life in Spain, postcards, good food and an occasional scrapbook page (note to self: start doing scrapbooking again).
And because this is T for Tuesday, I will have a beverage in the blog. You will find it at the end.
But first my postcards: The first one is a card specially made for a Postcrossing meeting in Finland. All over the world Postcrossers organize meetings in their country and this one was in Finland. There are more than 17000 Postcrossers in Finland (twice as much as in Spain) but only a small number will be able to travel to the meeting.
The second postcard comes from Russia and has a food theme. I always like to know what people cook and eat in other countries. This one did not have any information on it but it looks like pancakes with caviar, although on the one occasion that I have eaten caviar, it was black...
If you have followed my blog, you will know that we have spent Christmas and New Year in Holland. We had a very quiet and relaxing holiday.
I managed to get a travel version of the board game Sequence. So on New Year's eve we taught my cousin how to play and spent part of the evening having fun with it.
After spending two weeks in the Netherlands with my mother, hubby and I have now returned to Spain. Oh it is so good to see the sun again. Holland is lovely, but (like England) the skies are always grey.As we were queueing to board the aircraft, we saw these cute chairs:
After I took the picture, a couple with a baby placed their child on the chair and took pictures too. Nobody sat in them while we were there.
There were several parcels to collect when we got home and we had fun opening these lovely gifts from our children.
Some of our Danish friends were still in our village (they live next door to us but can only come for the holidays as they are younger than we are and have jobs to go to.). So Saturday night we had a meal together.
I'm drinking wine as usual and the lady taking the picture (pink drink) is drinking Tinto de Verano which is red wine and lemonade (translated it means summer red wine).
Today we are eating at a restaurant again and then tonight we are finally going to do some food shopping. We came home Saturday, went out in the evening and forgot to do shopping. Sunday everything is closed here. When I wanted to go shopping on Monday, it turns out the shops are closed again as Epiphany (THree Kings) was on Sunday, so they have their day off on Monday. We have been raiding the freezer and baking bread etc.
Now I am ready for some fresh fruit and veg.
That is it from me today.
Wishing you all a happy T-Day,
