A very small part of the Alhaurín el Grande Nativity display held every year in the  Casa de Cultura, went into the Mijas one last year too, very nice, but I am going to go out on a limb here and say, "ours is the best one!"

This morning the alarm had gone off, but I went straight back into a strange dream, usual for me, strange non the less.... then the door bell rang!!!! OMG trying to get out of bed, dressing gown off the door, wondering what the time it was, still dark outside??? Who is it? who is it???

Ah, a crate of wine on my door step! Delivery man thank goodness required no signature, trying to hold dog back and dressing gown closed was enough for me!!!

It was 7:15am!!  No chance of the householder being out I guess then at that time?? I had no 'safe' place to leave it, so they must have made me top priority! Of course!!

Wine? By the case? Not normally the sort of thing, but I won it! Well almost, for a huge discount gift, answered a questionnaire and won the 60% off, so really seems rude not to take advantage!

Phew six bottles of wine in the house, not seen that for a long long time, and strange, even at this time of day, now its there..... Mmmmmm!!!

So I was up! Early, showered and dressed after a run in the garden, for Pip, then back out there, did a quick clean up sweep, cleaned the refrigerator, had my breakfast, lovely wholemeal nutty bread and marmalade, both acquired yesterday, .45p for the marmalade!!!  Bought tea bags too, and Franco said how funny it was that in Spain we would be over the moon to get 50 tea bags for about 2€, could have been more, the euros I mean, not the tea bags, now, its a whole box for less than .30p!!! Tin of peas for .09p, curry sauce only .27p, basic, but a great base to add all the extra spices to, to make it your own flavour, although it is okay on its own...

Back to today!!! After breakfast I sterilised some jars, oven roasted my peppers, chillies, onions, squished them down in my mini processor thingy, in the pan with the vinegar and sugar, added my blend of spices and garlic.... brought back to boil, washed up, turned it off, put into the jars and there are my three jars of chilli jam, well chilli relish I guess really!

All washed up now, house clean and tidy, face done, and ready for work!
Thought I would just do a quick Blog of course before I got to it!

If I go away
What would still remain of me?
The ghost within your eyes?
The whisper in your sighs?
You see... Believe
And I'm always there.
