This will be my last post for a while as we are off to Spain where my Mum, Gran and Aunt and Uncle live – I have finished all my stitching and posted it and made my last pine cone the other day. Of course I am taking some more with me – making a start on next year’s ornaments!
We have had friends round this evening for a pre- Xmas party and tomorrow are having some presents and a traditional Xmas dinner with turkey and all the trimmings so that the children don’t feel too deprived! When in Spain we will have a picnic on the beach for Xmas day and a bar-b-que.
We arrive on Monday in Spain and we have booked a trip to Valencia for Thursday and Friday. Jacob and I went for the day in the summer but I wanted to go back as we did not have much time. We visited the fabulous old cathedral which has real relics in and then went to the modern City of Sciences area to see the aquarium centre which has the most wonderful beluga whales and seals. If you want to have a look at some pictures then check out this link.It is a beautiful city like so many in Spain and I’m sure we will be going back again after this visit. We also have plans to go up into the mountains again and to visit the wonderful natural outdoor spa pools with heated water and fabulous mountain views. It is a tough life but someone has to do it!
I hope that you all have a lovely Xmas and I will post when we get back.
