Rebecca continues to improve and felt she would be able to drive, so we had a lovely girlie day out, first we went to the hairdressers - now I'm not at ease there because of historical nightmares and would probably prefer to visit the dentist! - but Clare was very understanding and talked me through her suggestions, so there were highlights and low lights and even a modification to the style and I must admit to feeling rather good about my new hairdo. Rebecca had a beautiful purple colour put through various areas and looked stunning too. The other hairdressers all wanted to know how all the beautiful curls had been created and were quite taken aback when they were told it had naturally grown back in this way from being straight. Rebecca just grinned and said there had to be some positives from it all.
Then we stopped off at a little florist and purchased a nice rosemary bush and several primulas, all very bright and sunny. We were so hungry by this time and drove to the beach at Javea, unfortunately the breeze was just a little too sharp so we plumped for being inside but with sea views. We both chose the same

On a nice warm sunny day after collecting our post we sometimes indulge in a tostada with tomato (grated) and serrano ham. Just right as a brunch.
I needed a container in our bathroom for makeup brushes, eye liner pencils etc so upcycled a metal tin, making little knitted flowers, very useful
Hubby has now made a much larger quadcopter with a bigger camera, its amazing quality considering the size of it. He is having fun flying this but the wind has been a little too strong so he is having to be patient!!
Lights have been added to the spanish bar scene
Slowly slowly we are getting back into some miniatures..........
As I have mentioned I like using essential oils and thought I would pass on a little tip - when changing the toilet rolls, before slipping it in the holder, drip a few drops of your favorite oil into the inside of the cardboard roll at either end, I use geranium - you now have a lovely room freshener which seems to last for ages.
have a great weekend, take care
