The other day I walked along the paseo here in La Línea... As far as the blue benches go that is, and a little further! This is just a matter of minutes from home; who'd have thought!

Inappropriately dressed, wrong shoes, wrong coat! Heavy bag! Took my good camera but only used my phone! As usual!

Shamed by a man taking 'proper' photography using a tripod and camera almost long enough to reach the rock!


Last week's full moon, AKA Super Snow Moon, took this on our way from the bar.. But spooky looking, and in a pretty location I shall visit during daylight hours next time!

Above in Gibraltar's Commonwealth Park.. only small but very pretty and relaxing walking around there.

Lots of flora and fauna, although the latter were well hidden!

Last weekend we spent in Alhaurín home, arrived late and had most of the weekend to relax, and walk, and relax some more.

Above new perspective!

And below an old one... This tree coming back into flower again... Telling the time in its own way...

Been difficult not being able to upload photographs without WiFi, (without wifi!!! I scream silently!)

I know I can blog without but anyways...

Valentine's weekend we went to Fuengirola, and stayed in a hotel near the paseo maritimo... Nice hotel, and the food was hugely better than I thought it would be, even eating in a canteen way wasn't as bad as I had imagined! Lol

We were on level seven giving wonderful views...

Nice to see the old place from a different perspective forsure...

And my perspective can be strange!

We arrived mid-day'ish and had lunch in the Galleria area between streets, been there a while now, maybe four or five years? But I'd never eaten in there before.

Me above in 2001, feeling alive and hopeful and full of possibilities...

And I feel like that girl again up there; it's a bit butterflies, a bit like jumping into the unknown.

But I have a hand to hold and I'm not alone in taking a leap into a new chapter...

I have spoken to many family and friends, and I know my post today will be, hopefully, a happy surprise to many.

I should if I could have, spoken to more family especially, but I've been working away, as you know. Three weeks, two days, in Neath. Old home ground, which was both good and painful at the same time, and which maybe has helped, helped with seeing so many friends, and mentally also.

I'm at my oldest sons, now until Monday morning when I fly home to Spain.

No more working away from home; no more leaving where my heart resides.

Watch this space!

And for now!

Nottingham's Council House
Last night in Nottingham was Light Night, lots of exhibitions all over the city, which was buzzing, so many people. What we saw was really good, then it started to rain, so headed home.

Light Night

Bit impossible to make out above, but this church had many different activities going on; the best being a steam coming down from tubing with illuminations... Reflecting on the steam itself. A few different patterns, and you could walk thriuth the curtains of colored steam! Was really cool! We walked backwards and forwards through them, several times! Plus a few more times!! 

Cassie and I also walked into a separate quiet chapel, we knelt and looked at a cross on the floor made only of piled up four inch nails.. there were lights hidden amongst the nails, and although I'm not especially religious, it still was very symbolic.

Today my youngest son came to visit, they're staying nearby and will see them again tomorrow.

But today we went into the city for lunch, seven of us!
