Jane’s week with us

With hissing Sid spoiling our plans to go to Italy, Jane decided to come to us in Spain, so off to the airport to meet her, we had just enough time to drop the cases back to Rosie, then off to play boules for the evening. We had two or three games, then down to the pub for tapas, lovely evening, sitting out and just catching up.

Think I will be in trouble publishing this photo!

Up early, walking the dogs, Geoff went and bought some croissants, naughty naughty!! We had a lazy breakfast, then Geoff went to crib, and Daphne joined us for a girly morning. Although we went to the pool Daf was not allowed in as she is recovering from an op on her tummy poor thing. We had a few swims, then back for some snacks and wine, how civil is that. Geoff came back and we had lunch, and continued the lazy theme.

Saturday, we went for a swim on the beach, it was lovely and warm, a bit crowded but fantastic, we then had a drink at the bar, not sure what it was called, rum, mint, ice, lemonade and sugar, it was a lovely cocktail, then onto the ice cream parlour, good job we are on diets!!

In the evening we walked to the Latino Square, where we managed to eat yet again, not sure where all this food is going, but will put the scales away for a couple of weeks.

Grand Prix and Wimbledon final, so Geoff went to Steve’s while Daf came to us, we listened to most of the tennis, and I watched some of the race, we then had a BBQ with Geoff’s huge chops, and Daf had made a lemon meringue which was lovely, but we were so full up, we will eat it tomorrow.

Up early and into Torrejveika to get my bike sorted, we did some shopping whilst waiting, Jane bought me some lovely beach towels, they are brilliant. We had a tapas at lunch time, then went home bike is not ready until later in the week. We had a piece of Daf’s pudding, it was lovely, thanks Daf.

Nearly a week has gone by, it is amazing, it has gone far too fast, we have had such a good time, we have thoroughly enjoyed the pool at the campsite, glad we decided to stay here. Geoff went to get my prescription, and to see his friends in Campoverde, Jane and I had another lazy morning by the pool, we sunbathed, and swam. In the evening we went to the steak house, what a lovely meal we had, the food was excellent, thanks Jane.

Geoff and I went to get my bike, they cannot do it for three weeks, as they are waiting for parts, so it will have to wait until we get back in October, we went to Campoverde I had my hair cut, then did some shopping, picked Jane up back to the beach, a quick swim, another cocktail, then home for lunch, and sadly take Jane to the airport. What a lovely relaxing week, no hassle, no stress, everyone pulling together, considering we were very cramped for space, I think we all did very well.

    I had a simply fabulous time – doing absolutely nothing except take in the sun and bobbing in the pool – thank you both so much for a relaxing week – it was lovely to catch up with Daphne again, and of course the boules was enjoyable – I really enjoyed the whole time I was with you – and then back to reality and rain……. x
