Hello lovely ladies, Happy Friday!
It's time to look at what made us smile this week. I have had a lot to smile about.
As I mentioned last week, it was our 28th anniversary and we went out for a meal. Fish and chips is a rare commodity in our part of Spain, so when we heard of a local bar serving this treat , pre-orders only, we booked a table. We had a lovely time, but the fish was a disappointment. I think next time we feel the urge to have fish and chips, we will drive the extra 100 miles to get proper cod.
The Frida Kahlo image is a crocheted wall hanging. I featured it in my previous blog post (Tuesday).
My best friend's daughter married a Dutchman and they have moved back to Spain since the Covid situation. They have recently bought a local property, so they will stay here. His parents, who have been friends of ours now for many years, came for a two week holiday. They had rented a villa on the coast but that is right in the middle of the Covid area and they don't dare go there. So they are staying here in the village which we consider Covid safe, and we are helping to give them a memorable holiday. They are farmers who live and work on an isolated farm and they have traveled by car without stopping, and we consider the risk minimal, so we have decided not to social distance. There are 7 of them so it's a lot of fun.
Sunday was a quieter day (lots of washing up to do, which hubby helped me with) and we did our usual church online thing.
On Monday I usually go walking with my bestie, but this time our Dutch friend came too. The daughter of one of them has married the son of the other. I don't think there is an English word for that relationship. Perhaps 'co-mothers-in-law.' In Spain we have a word for that: 'consuegra'.
Anny is always showing pictures of her children and grandchildren, so here is one of mine:
My son Costantino and my grandson Luciano. It will be my son's birthday next week. He will be 44.
On Tuesday we spent more time with the Dutch family, and we took them to our weekend cave house and also to a view point where we enjoyed a spectacular sunset.
On Wednesday hubby and I went out for lunch. and did our weekly shopping on the way back. I also stopped at an ironmonger where I had seen some heavy pans. They still had them and I bought a large pan. My old one had lost its non-stick coating, and this one is heavy cast aluminium, so I think I shall enjoy using this.
Yesterday we spent the day at the pool with the Dutch family. This time they provided the lunch and had even brought along the charcoal for the BBQ. We had a lovely time.
There are some funnies as per usual (at the end).
Wishing everyone a very happy Friday and a great weekend,
