Hello lovely ladies! Here we are again to share our smiles and silver linings.
Lets start with one of my smiles, a nice postcard:
I belong to a 'club' called Postcrossing. It's an online postcard exchange group with more than half a million participants all around the world. Some countries issue stamps especially for Postcrossing as it is very popular. The above postcard comes from Guernsey and below are two stamps with 'Happy Postcrossing' on them. How cool is that!
Guernsey has a special place in my heart as my husband comes from Guernsey. He was born a Sarnian, as people from Guernsey are called. Apparently the Romans called the island Sarnia.
Last Thursday I hadn't done my collage when I was writing my Friday post, so here it is. As you can see the weather has turned and it is cold and rainy. Just the sort of day to do jobs like changing over the wardrobe from summer to winter.
In the afternoon my friend Antonia and I braved the weather and went for a walk to clear the cobwebs as they say. On the way back she treated me to a cup of tea at the cafe.
When I went to the gym on Friday morning, we were shown into a smaller side room as the main hall was being prepared for a youth event.
On Thursday we had gone into town to buy some baskets for my new book case, but they didn't have white ones. I chose some different colours and I think it looks really nice this way. Now all I need to do is make some labels to put over the existing one to tell me what is where.
Saturday was an indoor day too as it rained almost all day.
Sunday it rained even more and we had a record 12 litres per sq metre! In the evening we went to a local worship group to sing our hearts out.
Monday was our 29th wedding anniversary. We didn't do anything special but I did cook hubby his favorite meal: Toad-in-the-hole. His pain is increasing so I went to the family doctor to get a prescription for something stronger. And then after lunch we went food shopping. Nothing exciting about that.
On Tuesday we went out for lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I had grilled chicken breast and hubby had ham, egg and chips. The latter is not on any Spanish menu but this is our regular restaurant and they always make it especially for him.
Our neighbour got bitten by three dogs who attacked him. He had rescued these dogs and was feeding them when they got aggressive and attacked him. So he had to go the the health center and get some injections and antibiotics.
On Wednesday the sun shone again, but I spent the day indoors as I had the accounts to do. (I am treasurer of the photo club and the accounts have to be done by Saturday. All done now!
I had my booster vaccination a couple of days ago plus a vaccin against pneumonia. I was feeling a bit 'icky', and slightly nauseous, so we just had pasta with butter and parmesan cheese for dinner. (I just assume it was as a result of the vaccination. I feel fine now).
Our friends usually come on Wednesday, but they needed to go to do some official business in town on Thursday and I came with them to do some translating. It all went well and we had some coffee at a café that in the summer has an enormous terrace with lots of people outside. Now it looks rather bleak. But the coffee tasted just the same.
They spent the rest of the day at our house and I roasted that enormous parsnip together with some potatoes in the oven for dinner.
That was my week. How was yours? I'm going to join Annie at A Stitch In Time. Please join us with your smiles.
Have a lovely weekend,
