Hello lovely people,
How are you all?
Happy T-Day. Come and join us at Elisabeth and Bluebeard with a blogpost with a beverage in it. Here is (one of) mine.
The image above (not a postcard) translates: May all your plans come true.
I'm showing you some postcards I sent this week. The first one is on its way to Russia. This young lady said she likes Thomas Kinkade and this card is a bit in that style. It is obvious that she does not speak english and uses an online translator. This is what she wrote: ' I will be very pleased to receive your piece of heat in the form of postcards, bearing light, good and joy'.
And the card with the RealMadrid footbal stadium goes to Frank who works for a bank in Luxembourg. He is a huge soccer fan, and also a long distance runner.
This is one of the stamps I used. It reads 'Gender equality in the armed forces. 30th anniversary of the incorporation of women.'
Last week we bought a new tea pot. It works a bit like a French coffee pot. It takes loose leaf tea and when the desired colour/strength has been achieved, you push down the plunger and the tea will be kept at the bottom and won't continue to steep. Clever idea. We haven't used it with tea yet as we don't drink real black tea, but we have a lot of loose rooibos mixes. We're finding that the rooibos is finer than tea and some 'bits' escape from the mesh. The holes are relatively big I think. Has anyone else have this problem?
his is what our dining table looked like for most of last week. Wrapped presents, a few Christmas cards in the making and Shaz & Doug's card standing upright agains the presents. Isn't it beautiful. I have since hung it up. It is a work of art. Thanks Shaz!
We visited a friend the other day who had moved to another cave house. She had work done on this house and it looks lovely. This was the dining room, ready for the meal. There were 7 of us eating.
Here are our best friends on the left and on the right is a pastor and his wife from a neighbouring church.
And there is my hubby in the red Ikea chair. Note the lights behind the roof tiles in the corner. I always get ideas for our cave when i see others'.
We saw some new (to me) the illuminations outside the town hall late at night. (nobody is about, it gets quite cold at night as we have very few clouds)
There were a few members of the brass band that had been playing that evening. We missed that unfortunately.
Winter has set in and one can tell by the leaves on the trees, which will soon disappear all together. This is the Paseo, the little park close by our house.
I am very excited as today we are traveling by bus to Alicante, where we have booked a hotel. Tonight (depending on the hotel wifi) I might be able to do some comments, but most of the evening will be taken up by hubby wining and dining me.
Tomorrow we'll catch a flight to Rotterdam. woohee!
Wishing you all a happy T-Day,
