Hola bloggies. It’s been a while. I have excuses. People to see and things to do. And limited access to wifi
Took a drive high into the mountains to watch the Spanish at play. Not quite the French Alps but fun. One can spend the morning, bikini clad on the beach, and within an easy two hour drive spend the remainder of the day skiing the slopes, if so inclined. Needless to say, I stuck with après ski.
Spent a night in the mountain village of Competa. I painted the pic some time ago (from a postcard). It was fun to become acquainted with the real thing, although the drive up there is hairy if you don’t fancy narrow winding roads!
Finally got to visit the Alhambra in Granada, courtesy of JD’s boyfriend (he booked weeks in advance) so can delete it from the bucket list. It is, of course, quite stunning and worth every minute, despite the queues.
Got to spend two delightful weeks with the Pumpkin l, before she had to return to Mud land and back to school.
Done some painting – mostly menu boards for JD’s restaurant. (I truly am a lousy sign writer but they were desperate). Not exactly what we would consider a traditional menu but the food was very good. I learned something. ‘Amuse’ is the new word for ‘aperitif ‘. Whilst working on the board I had visions of the chef doing a sing & dance routine.
Have discovered a fabulous little restaurant in the village of Nerja. 2 pizzas and coffee or a glass of wine – under 9 Euros! And truly the best pizza ever.
I am currently house and cat sitting whilst JD is in South Africa and then will head back to Mi Casita in the village for a few short weeks. Time is going way too fast.
