I know I have my 'hardcore' readers (is that the right term - probably not) because the comments you leave me are from a close group of blogging friends and I am so grateful to you lot because without comments, I don't think I could continue now.
There is absolutely nothing wrong. Nothing at all. I've been busy and I've had - still got - a horrid head cold that has given me a bout of sinusitis like I haven't had for decades. I'm slightly anxious and excited about what is 'going to happen' when I don't go back to work in September - though I know it's down to me to investigate my options. Indeed, I'm off to a meeting in about 10 minutes to talk about the possibilities of doing a summer school in Alcala la Real.
|See - perfectly cheerful in my little study! Hello!|
I have a week to myself as FR takes the children to Majorca for a week in July. Originally, just he, Ruy and Romy where going to see his brother, who lives there, but Mateo thought it could be fun too, so they're all going. I confess to being absolutely delighted at the idea of a whole week to myself. No cooking, no piles of laundry, no timetable or need to do anything I don't want! And no desire to sit on a beach this year - my garden will do just fine.
And although I have no batteries in my camera (a sure sign of blog fatigue) I've just looked at what we've taken on Ruy's and so I thought I'd share with you just a few images of what we've all been up to during the busy weeks in June. And when I go into town today - I shall buy some batteries.
