I hope everyone had a lovely time Christmas, and Santa brought you everything you wanted.
Our Christmas day this year was on Christmas Eve.
Rebecca had been working five straight days but had the 23rd off, returning to work on the 26th.
Spanish traditions are different and they really celebrate for Three Kings 5/6th January.
It is always difficult when you need to split the festivities between two families, so this year Rebecca and I decided that we would ´do´ Christmas eve and they would stay overnight, leaving them to visit Antoni´s family on the day.
It worked out very well, albeit a little strange as we felt we were one day out for the rest of the week.
Christmas day we joined the neighbours for a drink at one of our local restaurants, we were going to stay for lunch (normal day as far as the Spanish were concerned) but still felt so awful from this bug, we changed our minds.
Yesterday was so mild, we reached 22C it was lovely to sit in the Naya enjoying the sunshine. Then I got itchy feet and decided to tackle the rose bed, it was piled high with debris from our high winds the other day, amazing how far the fig leaves etc travel, including four basket loads retrieved from the pool, the roses were in dire need of a good pruning. I tend to forget that everything is done earlier than the UK.
It looks so much better and just to make me smile one bush even had these
Three lovely flower buds.
Daniel, Shine and the girls flew out from Heathrow on the 29th for a month in the Phillipines.
Visiting Shine´s family and just relaxing
Wishing you all the best for 2018 with lots of love, health happiness and energy
Thank you for visiting my blog and ramblings this year, I really appreciate it
Happy New Year
