Hello lovely people,
How have you all been? I am fine and smiling from ear to ear. We're on a little mini holiday. One of our boys is holidaying in the Algarve with wife and three children. They drive back to the ferry through Spain and we have arranged to meet half way. It's a place called Plasencia. It's a day's drive from where they are and a day's drive from where we are. We have decided to go one day before them so here we are in a little hotel room with dodgy wifi...
We saw the famous Alcantara bridge, a Roman bridge near the border. I have lovely photos but I stll haven't figured out how to retrieve my photos on my iPad and insert the image in Blogger, so you'll have to wait until I get back home to my desktop.
This black and white card is supposed to be funny, but to be honest, I don't see what is so funny. Perhaps horses don't sit like that (I have no idea about horses). Anyway, this is a card I sent out this week to someone who likes black and white cards.
This is a stamp I have used for all my cards this week. I bought a whole sheet of these.
It's unusual in that the white bit representing the bridge is actually cut out.
The card with the books I received this week from the USA. The sender (I forgot her name) is a lover of books and absolutely loves reading books. She told me what she was reading at the moment.
I had a really nice surprise this week. A friend from work is holidaying in Andalucia at the moment with her husband. She contacted me the other night saying she had only just realized I lived near Granada. The were staying in Granada, could we arrange to meet. So they kindly got on the bus the next day, arrived at 3 pm, but they had to get the 6pm bus back. so it really a a flying visit.
We had so much fun catching up! (and oh the joys of a mature double chin!)
I'd better get some funnie for you. As I am not at home I have no way of checking (other than reading through all my blogs) if I have shown you these before. so apologies if I have repeated myelf.
That was my Friday contribution to Annie's Friday Smiles. Have a great weekend all,
and keep smiling!
