I am lucky to have a garden - it brings me colour and hope and something to look forward to, whatever the season.

... including the last supper and angels....
We wandered through the town where lemon and lime trees grew amidst the hustle and bustle.
We sat beneath umbrellas sipping sangria and people watching.
Sangria, paella, tapas, seafood, a spanish dictionary close to hand to help schoolgirl Spanish lessons,
several books, hot hot weather - it was a time to be savoured and much enjoyed.
Yet it is good to be home too. Now that this long awaited holiday has come and gone I finally feel that Summer is finished and I am enjoying the Autumn colours I have returned to.

Thank you for your lovely comments on the last post. Straight after the interview we packed the car and were away on mini break. We had a lovely few days in Wales and then we met up with our three sons in Chester to celebrate our eldest son's birthday (he's 28!!)
It's been a lovely break from the norm.
As we were walking along this beach I was pondering "Blimey I don't feel old enough to have a son turning 28." I am not worried by this, it just feels funny as I feel quite young!
Then I saw an elderly chap who had left his wheelchair on the promenade and walked a short distance on his walking stick to a large piece of driftwood on the sand. He sat down on the driftwood, quite alone on the almost deserted beach and proceeded to remove the shop wrapping paper on a brightly coloured children's kite and started to fly it joyfully.
He demonstrated joy in the moment and joy for the future. I hope I shall never lose pleasure in simple, happy things. He gave me much hope. ☺
