Well here it is amigos... 2010! and the sun is shining... the sky is blue, please stay that way now, we had an horrendous amount of rain, the reservoirs are so full now, they were full after last winters rain so we really didn't need any more!

did i tell you Barry bought me a mouse for my little note book here? i still find it confusing sometimes, i am typing away and then use the mouse pad, forgetting i have the mouse separate now and much easier for my hands to use with lots less pain. especially when playing solitaire, although that is forgotten now!

and i forgot to give him his sugared mouse! just remembered this morning... there they are in a little white bag!

yesterday afternoon i got a *Mafia wars* gift on facebook and checked out Café World... well that's it i am hooked well and truly, i couldn't or rather didn't understand all the stuff on facebook where people were logging their trials and tribulations from *Mafia wars* or *farmville* but now.... different story, i got on to it, told Franco and then he was, is hooked, we didn't even go to bed till nearly 1am last night, caught up in cooking and cleaning and food preparations!! and Franco even got up early knowing a dish was ready... yes this is very weird... but strangely good, takes your mind of your worries momentarily for sure... and that's not a bad thing sometimes.... the game is playing in the back ground now, i can hear the cash registers clanging away, ca'ching! earning me points and coins etc! dont know how long the addiction will last, i suppose back in England it will keep me from thinking too much...

mom cant wait for me to arrive now, understandable, only been gone two weeks, but seems like ages now... she fell down the other night, not badly, just sort of slipped down the closet door, she had her alarm round her neck thank goodness and buzzed them, a guy came out, picked her up, and later tucked her back into bed! hope she wasn't too cheeky eh! she said she made him blush!!!!

we went over to Coín this morning and to Mercadona, remember mercadona man amigas??? anyway... lots of cars on the road and the supermarket was heaving, obviously everyone had run out of food already! really???

Franco and i were even talking about our cafés in café world! its a good thing this addiction is harmless.........?

cant remember, Franco bought me some of those wonderful long sticks of sweets, red outside and white inside, they were so full of MSG... i looked like a strawberry! all over my face, down my neck, my scalp... and inside my elbows??

well i had to stay away from all things MSG over the last week, including pectin, gum, and a million other things that hide they're msg in other names! so i am looking better now, still a bit itchy though! and getting into the car earlier i got bitten on the hand, maybe a spider? but it made my fingers hurt!

a lovely warm day today... and so take care amigos, hasta luego...

New Year’s Reflections
Looking back on the months gone by,
As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy,
And we think of our loved ones and our friends.
Recalling all the happy times,
Remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives.
And when I/we ponder those who do,
I/we immediately think of you.
Thanks for being one of the reasonsI'll/We'll have a Happy New Year!

There is a character in the book, "Facebook Addiction: The Life & Times of Social Networking Anonymous", that is hooked on Mafia Wars. It seems to be really addictive.

Carol.. thank you, Mom did not look good, very small and fragile, and seemed to feel bad about looking and being so bad in front of me... i suppose i would be same, i would hate for my sons to see me like that too x
