Breakfast

I've got the post Sitges blues
John sent me a photograph of beach in full glorious sunshine today. The thunderstorms that dovetailed my departure all done and forgotten.
In a Spanish vein I made a basil, mozzarella, salmon and papaya open sandwich for breakfast as I caught up with The Archers 

But without the lull roar of the Mediterranean, breakfast wasn't quite the same.
Yesterday I caught up with things here.
Villager Elder Islwyn was giving the finishing touches to a dry stone wall as I walked up.  You can always recognise him as we always wears a foreign legion hat with a sun guard flap down the back when working on village outdoor projects.
Islwyn is one of the carers for a lady in the village who is presently in hospital. He and the other carers have looked after their charge better than any trained nurse could have done and I can understand him being at a loose end.
At the Community Association coffee morning I caught up with perhaps a dozen others.
Bridget from Well Street was drumming up support for a race night at the village Hall on the 9th of November which looks like fun.
I collected the dogs at 5pm last night. Winnie steamed out of the kennel block like a hippo running for water when she heard me and has spent the following 18 hours with her head touching at least one part of my body at all times. Mary was exhausted and insisted on sitting on my knee as I drove home.
Albert went head rub mad when they got home

The family is reunited

I'll post Dorothy photos later. She arrives this afternoon

  2. I'd take that open sandwich, but hold back on the salmon, please.

    Btw: Those 'Foreign Legion hats with sun-guard flap' are 'kepis'. Concise.

  5. I tried simply frying sardines when we got back from Venice in the vain hope of bringing it all back. I should have brought back the chef as well as the sardines.

    2. Well I can do without the snogging, but a wank is a wank whatever country you find yourself in.

  10. A race night? Does that involve villagers' pets? I doubt that Winnie will win any rosettes - unless there's a cocktail sausage eating competition.

  11. My Tomato crop failed this year (again!), so my neighbour has been bringing me big buckets of fat juicy Tomatoes, every time he passes. Both for breakfast and for lunch I had simple Tomato sandwiches, made with thick slices of well-salted Tomato..... delicious. Welcome home!

    Would a 'sounds of the sea' CD, turning the heat up, and slathering on a bit of sunscreen have helped set the scene for your lovely breakfast?

    Your lovely account of your Saturday and your reunion with the furry kids is a treat! Winnie is making sure you don't disappear again.

    Hugs!

  16. Joy is an new inhabitant of the village, a neighbour of Kirsties and sitter that Kate got in, so that she could go and cannodle with Jackob for the night.

  18. Post holiday blues is enough to get me booking another one. But the as the saying goes "all good things ....I must copy your breakfast... minus the bread, it looks delish. Family reunions with furry kids is always so special. Bless Winnie ... she is such a devoted lady. Hope Dorothy doesn't put her nose out of joint. Archie one of my cats does nothing but talk to me for hours if I have been away.
