SMELL THE JASMINE…while pottering around
That’s what its been, a pottering time, doing a bit of this and that. Bought a new binder but trying to link up the difference in using the cutting lines from the old machine to the new one has been a nightmare! Have made a few of my ‘Eye with a camera, Andalucias secrets’ photo books….need a stock for when the rush starts and I become famous! Have found a shop in Malaga which sells the perspect (!) covers I was after, so that’s a blessing but no luck with the paper/card I want or the mounts and cellophane sleeves for photos. So as I am in the UK from 6th to 14th April, I will be bringing those back. Can’t believe how hard it is to find these sorts of things here, there must be photographers and card makers who need them.
I am back driving!! ‘Bout time to, it’s been two years since my accident and I have been putting it off and off, but I have had to do these last two weeks…my other half has been in hospital, more or less situated in the centre of Malaga, so I had to get myself back from there, then as he couldn’t drive for two weeks, I had to collect him and get him home. Realised how much I had missed driving and the lack of independence. Must say though, since the accident we have been out and about, even 2000 miles through Morocco, and he has just taken it for granted that my confidence had gone.
The clocks went back today….how strange to see it light at this time of night. Before we know it, it will be the height of summer with really long light nights and we will be complaining about the heat which goes along with it.
The jasmine is smelling lovely, especially if I type this up during the day with the bedroom window open, the scent wafts all through the house. I intend getting one for downstairs on Casa Sandra, as its terrace is just outside my kitchen window and then I would get a double dose of its wonderful smell.
Going to the theatre tomorrow night, the Cervantes Theatre in Malaga, our third visit this year. This time it is to a concert by the pianist Ludovico Einaudi….I have his latest on my iPad i.e. The Islands. Fantastic. You will know of his music as it is used in many TV ads and in film scores.
