|Holiday Photo at the Santa Maria (pre lamb chops)|
It has been lovely
6 days of good food (Baby Lamb chops to die for at The Santa Maria)
6 days of Good Reading ( I actually caught up with Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's for the first time and LOVED IT)
6 days of Wonderful relaxation ( we never left the beach except to eat, pee and sleep)
and a chance for me NOT to feel like earth mother to 78 animals and for Dr Chris not to feel that everything revolves around a University computer.
Suffice to say, we had a lovely time....
I have felt spoilt to hell...he has recharged the old little grey cells and both of us have been reminded that we are just two old farts that love the same things in life.
Sitges in Spain has always retained some of it's old world charm, and the town seems to have a celebration, a parade and a festival for every bloody occasion!
when we were there, there was a wine festival, some sort of political parade ( which comprised of 50 school kids banging drums for 3 f*CKING hours!) and a gay "bears" weekend.....(where a load of fat, bearded and cheerful old queens from all over Europe descended on the town for some serious moustache twirling and drunken bouts of singing popular "hits from the shows" at 3am in the morning- most of them right outside our hotel window )
Anyhow apart from meeting the family for a few meals ( my elder sister, her hubby, my sister in law , my nephew and his wife and daughter had all decided to go to the "family "hotel when we were there!), we did very little but relax and "watch the world go by"
well it was.......
Anyhow we are back in blightly and I have started the long process of "counting the animals home" so to speak
So far Albert had reintroduced himself from his week alone with some uncharacteristic yowling and head rubbing and George has returned cheerfully from my sister's home where he has been spoilt rotten out of his little Scottish Terrier mind...tomorrow I will count the field animals against my mental check list to see if any are missing and then I will and pick up the straggler animals from Eilys and William and Meg from the dog kennels and then and ONLY then, will I be back to normal......
