It's time for the T-Party hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard at Altered Book Lover. It's real simple: All you need to do is have a drink somewhere in your blog post.
I will start straight away with my drink:
Every Sunday after church we go to a local bar and have coffee and Baileys. Here I am with my coffee. I drink 'cafe cortado', which is an expresso type of coffee with a dash of milk in it. The owner's daughter was helping behind the bar and her 'dash' was rather generous. Here I'm saying to hubby that my coffee looked very much like his (coffee with milk).
We had a birthday in the church. One of our members had an unexpected pregnancy (her youngest is 17) and she gave birth to a gorgeous little girl, adored especially by her older brothers and daddy. On Sunday she was one year old and time to celebrate:
Here is the cake from the other side. It was very yummy! (No, I didn't make it).
Our patronal festival, San Sebastian, fell on a Saturday this year and our village was chockerblock with people.
I stayed at home as I hate crowds. But most people love this festival as several groups of people (brotherhoods) try to steal the saint (in reality a cross representing the saint).In Spanish it is called the Robo del Santo.
Robo del Santo translates as 'the theft of the saint'. As the church bells chime 5 o'clock, the team that won last year come out of the church with the cross. Other groups literally fight, jostle and wrestle to get their hands on it.
Who has the cross in posession at the end of the procession, is the winner and he and his friends will pay for next year's festivities. That is quite a commitment. It costs thousands and they will be fundraising all through the year to get that covered. This is 2018's winner:
The photos were taken by photoclub members. This one is good too:
Now before I forget, let me show you a postcard. Here is one I am going to send tomorrow morning. It is going to Johor in Malaysia. This person wanted a map card. Fortunately I can oblige.
It is a map of Spain with Andalucia (The green bit at the bottom, where we live) clearly visible in the south. We live in the north East of Andalucia.
I'm going to call it a day.
Have a super T-Day,
