Well actually I have been back home for about 3 weeks now, but so much seems to have happened that I just needed a break without forming thoughts into written words.
I had a lovely time with Rebecca on our trip, instead of her leaving after one week, she stayed on and we enjoyed each others company and friendship. Unfortunately there was rather a high level of stress during our time there, which I won't go into, but that was another reason for staying together. Like the two musketters
One afternoon Rebecca surprised me with a trip to a spa, where we enjoyed the facilities for just the two of us, along with a huge platter of fresh fruit and juices, then I was given the treatment of hot stone massage for the complete back of the body. Well let's just say I whoffted out of there without a care in the world, delightful, if ever you have the chance do have a try.
I did have to pay extra baggage, (there's a surprise) but what with some good deals in Monsoon, along with toiletries and the must haves (like Marmite and coconut milk powder etc) it soon added up. As I left, Rebecca continued on her journey to Hythe (Kent), enjoying a night in a very nice family B&B, to join her best friend and family, in the end staying nearly a month.
I arrived home in time to tweak patterns etc for the craft afternoon at the Cancer Care shop, but unfortunately no one turned up which was such a shame. However I had no control over advertising etc and I really think that was part of the problem. Still you don't know until you try.
This last week seems to have sped by too, first Rebecca asked for my help in making a special 60th birthday cake for Antoni's Mother.
Then quite out of the blue we received a booking for a 65th birthday party in Gata de Gorgos, so it was all systems go packing up the equipment ready for the gig. This was the first one since hubby's accident, every one was up dancing and it sounded brilliant and his hand held out really well. So more bookings from now on! then my usual morning in the shop followed by a very nice lunch at Rebecca's whilst helping her with the domestic chores. Making decorations for presents, then wrapping birthday presents for Rebecca, I do like to personalise them with flowers or butterflies, hiding sprinkles etc
Wednesday saw me making another birthday cake, this time for Rebecca, finishing just in time for hubby to take the cake to the restaurant before Rebecca arrived. We had a lovely lunch, sharing the fun and cake with the locals, super day all round.
Thursday afternoon we followed Rebecca back down the mountain, heading for the beach in Javea, where we enjoyed a cool drink by the gently lapping sea. Then Rebecca and I went for a paddle in the sea, it is really shallow for a long way out and so it was so warm, we collected shells, had a giggle and stored memories.
Today! well it had to be a chill out day, a little bit of crochet sitting in the Naya, it was 31C in the shade, the pool is getting up to temp so I wonder what the weekend will bring.
Enjoy your weekend, where ever you are and what ever you are doing.
ps. sorry no piccies, I did take some but just haven't done anything with them yet
