|A sheep pace of life|
We still have no television and no one seems to miss it, but we don't get the reminders of time that programmes used to give us and as the evenings stay light, it comes as a bit of a shock that it's time the children were in bed and another day is almost over.
It was lovely, with the little infant children joining in and having a great time. The performance was held in the art room and I was most impressed with the displays and snapped away with my phone camera - so the quality of the photos isn't that good but there's no doubting the quality of the art!

I've been taking some beautiful walks with Darwin - the countryside here is something very special. Unlike much of this region, not all the land is given over to olives. We have a lot of other trees and plants around too. And Villalobos is in a gorgeous valley - very lush at the moment - with lots of water running in rivers and small streams. We've picked a very lovely place.
(Photos taken again with my phone...they're not bad but not good!)

|Gorgeous daisies but can't work out why my feet are there if I took the photo myself? They look too far away....|
|How I love poppies.....I really do.|
And tomorrow, I can show it to my mum!
Yes, as soon as we found the house, she booked a flight to come and visit. I can hardly wait. Despite having lived here such a short time myself, I have really enjoyed looking at it all as if with her eyes too - deciding what to show her when she arrives. She'll be glad to sit in our garden and take a long earned rest too. She might just be persuaded to put her green fingers to use - or at least advise. Anyway - I know her visit will also fly past too, but quality time it will certainly be.
