And no itch....It's hard to believe, but seven years ago we were rolling off the ferry at Santander to begin our new life in Spain. What an adventure so far.............!!!!!
This cacti is the latest to 'sprout' its flower, which means afterwards it will die. Such a shame as this is such a nice one. It is in the garden where all the other agarves did the same thing and we are now in the 'slow' process of revamping the whole area
We have noticed that due to the extremely dry weather, a lot of the cacti are flowering, ones that we have not seen before, teeny flowers to large extravagant ones, amazing how plants can surprise you
As you know I have continued to have my grocery shopping delivered as it has taken away another energy draining process and allows me extra for nicer things. This also allows bitza days when I use up veggies etc instead of just adding to them, this week I had saved a fresh chicken and was going to use it for that night's dinner, still several days in date so fine. Or not!! oh dear, you just know don't you, when you open the packaging and reel, not good. Instead I made a pumpkin, broccoli and chick pea thai style curry. However I was a bit miffed as the chicken cost nearly 5e, so I rang head office, discussed the problem with a very nice lady who said that they would replace the product, but, and this is the best bit!! she asked if I wanted it to be delivered that evening or the next morning!!!! considering it was already gone 6pm I couldn't believe it, now that's service. As it was I declined and added it to my next delivery. I was well impressed though.
They are threatening a storm here, again, but our mountain always seems to save us, now I am looking out at darkening skies, with a hint of gloom, we do need it but will we get it, shall we get the buckets out to save the water..... we shall see......................
take care xcx
