New year went well. we went for Raclete at Tina and Johns they came down from Geneva for a couple of days. new years day we recovered by going for a walk along the prom at Santa Margarida, lovely sunny day and lots of people doing the same thing.

At some point in between Mum and Dad arriving the dishwasher was fixed, its still sticking out a bit without its wooden door, but at least it works.

Mum and Dad arrived to perfect weather, Saturday awe went to Palafrugell then Tamariu for lunch then instead of going to the Italian we went for a pizza as the Italian was shut for holidays.

Sunday we went to Roses market eventually then for a drink on the sea front before home for barbque and presents.

Monday i worked and Mum didnt eat Mussels. but we did get to see the kings pass through the village, Dad and i went to get some hot chocolate but it wasnt ready before we had to leave.

Tuesday was fiesta so we all went up to Cuillure in France then back buy the shopping centre at Jonquera.

Wednesday i worked, and afterwards we finally got to go to the Italian, Mark and Wendy came with us, and good food was eaten all round.

Thursday i worked as well, Mum and Dad went for lunch at the windmill, and in the evening we went for egg and chips in the bar, i had pan con tomate with manchego as i didnt fancy chips.

Friday morning Mum and Dad went home, that evening we met Mark and Wendy up at Pepes whom had arrived back from England without Cerrie as she had flue. looks like they will finally be building the house. Saturday was market day then home to do nothing in front of the tele.

Sunday we went for a walk to an abandoned village, interesting but not as spooky as we had hoped. mainly abandoned due to the great frost of 1956. minus 10 degrees killing all the olive trees the villages main source of income.
