A Postcard A Day - Friday 23 Nov 2018 - Friday Smiles

Good morning!
Have you had a good night? Have you had a good week? My week has flown by. I don't know where the time has gone.

This week my hubby has made a lot of progress on my 'walk-in-wardrobe'. It is the only part of our house that is still a cave. Until now it had a metal lockable door and hubby kept tools and building materials in there as he was building. Now the flat is finished and we have lived there this past summer. The cave is next to the bedroom, so we decided that instead of housing power tools, we would make it into a walk-in-wardrobe. It is actually very big for a wardrobe and could accomodate a double bed. So we are making a toilet in it and putting sockets and powerpoints where a bed could go. Here is hubby showing me how it would go and did I like that.

Yes, I did like that. (Of course there is going to be a wall and a door before the toilet). I'm excited as I have never had such a large wardrobe. 

We are now back living upstairs with the fire that we light every day as the weather here in southern Spain has been wet and dreary, damp and dull for weeks. We had to dig out my old lightbox, which I used to use in the UK to combat my SAD syndrome. Yes, it's that bad!

Our cat has been living indoors more than out. We have covered the settee with a throw, but he is no trouble really. Likes to sit by the fire on top of hubby's old messenger bag.
Our puss is called Precious. When he was a kitten (and we thought he was a she) he had such big eyes, that he reminded us of Gollum,  that caracter in the Hobbit that says 'My Precioussss'. 

Well, now as an adult cat we ended up calling him Boodles or Puskins. Boodles usually.

I have been active in the photo club and the theme for November was 'tree'. This is my entry which I called 'Surprise'.
The surprise being the squirrel sitting there without me really realising when I took the photo. I didn't get many points for it as they said the subject wasn't really the tree but the squirrel stole the limelight. 

I have been sending some postcards as well this week. I sent this one to a lady who asked Postcrossers in the UK to send her photos of the royal family. Well, I don't live in the UK but as our son and D-I-L live in Windsor, I bought some postcards the last time I was there. Here is Prins Harry, with his new wife Meghan when they got married in Windsor recently.
 I also sent this card to someone who plays board games. I wonder if he plays backgammon?
That is it from me. 
I'm going to link up with Annie at A Stitch In Time, and with Virginia at Celtic House. By all means join us there with your smiles for this week.

Have a lovely weekend and a good week ahead.

Are you ready for some funnies? Here are mine:

 This translates: When your addiction to chat is so great....that you don't care losing your job as a blind beggar.


  1. Oh Lisca! What a giggle I had at your funnies this week....where do you find them? :-) Your walk in wardrobe will be amazing when your clever man has worked his magic....we are so lucky to have a 'man that does'. Bless him, mine is still putting my socks on each morning for me as my feet still havent got any closer as yet.
    As to your photo of the tree I think you should have got extra Brownie points for it :-)

  2. Hi Lisca, those funnies are brilliant today. A walk-in-wardrobe! now that is a real treat, would love one of those. Loving the photos too. Hope you both have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Angela xXx

  3. You made me laugh. Your new wardrobe addition sounds great. Hoping you get some sunshine. Pat 😺

  4. Happy weekend Lisca. I hope you get to move all your things into the new wardrobe soon! hugs-Erika

  5. Loved the funnies. Very clever. Those postcards are great, too. I really like the one of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They have really changed the face of the Royals. I bet Meghan and Dianna would have gotten along perfectly together.

    Your new wardrobe is going to be fabulous. I know you will love it when it's complete. Have a great rest of the weekend, dear.

  6. Hello Sweetie, even more gremlins in the system as my scheduled post doesn't seem to have posted, honestly frustrated with the computer above and beyond at the moment.

    I loved the post and I love your tree picture as I love the bright green leaves against the dark bark and the squirrel is brilliant!

    The funnies made me smile as well.

    I'd love a walk in wardrobe, how fantastic to have enough space for that and an ensuite, that's brilliant, I can't wait to see how it works out. We too are using our fire more at the moment and I hear you on the SAD side of things, the light levels some days make me want to hibernate.

    Have a fabulous week
