where has the time gone, monday and the weekend passed by already...

last wednesday friends and i went to the lakes! beautiful afternoon, left about 1130 and got home around five, just before franco got home!

we went into the lake... well i walked in and sat on a rock! not being able to swim and all that, but it was lovely once the water didnt feel cool anymore... was freezing to start with, then it felt warm after a couple of minutes...

we sat for a while in and out of the water, then when we were dry we dressed and went to the kiosk bar and had a little lunch, followed by a short walk around the lake.

friends husband drove, the first time they had been there, i hope they enjoyed it and go again, maybe when its not so hot.

no mercadona shop saturday.... we went when franco was home from work...

and sunday we went met friends for lunch at the moreno restaurant on the edge of town, we left there at nearly 4pm! yes long lovely lunch, and followed them to their house, beautiful... what a wonderful location up on a hill overlooking the valley, to the right of us, and they can see malaga too, was a good afternoon, sat out side in the shade talking, and a few tinto verano drinks, for me, lemonade for franco, he was driving!

we didnt get home till nearly ten, and pippa was right up set, smelling other dogs on us! and leaving her for so long...

tomorrow is a favorite of mine, just mentioned to barry maybe i would hear from him and he said why tomorrow.... humph! kids eh!

heard a strange thing today, but not sure if its true, heard a little 7 year girl was almost taken from a local shop here in town... her mom lost sight of her and she almost got abducted!! not sure how true this is, so will check it out tomorrow, before i tell you more details...

gotta go, pippa is having a hard time, there is a rat living in the mountain bit behind our house, and everytime he pops out his head pippa wants to get him, a true spanish hunting dog eh, infact the neighbor came over with his gun, not anything big, no oozy time thing, but he fired at the rat and missed, pippa didnt flinch at all, just stood there, pointed and ready to fetch!

but for now, the rat has his own place his own cave and own land! not sure what we will do, he is minding his own business i agree, but too near our back door for my liking, and he is big!

If you pay close attention to each day, you will discover the magic moment...
