Not much to tell from Spain;
- it has been grey, cold and rainy, like every Easter I have spent in Spain,
- my cold that started last Friday just got worse and yesterday I spent all day in bed – sleeping and reading (finished the last Wallander book plus started and finished Musselstranden by Marie Hermanson),
- trying to convince my MIL that I cannot eat enormous portions especially for dinner at 23,
- had “fika” with my first BIL, his wife and 7 year-old son who was very pleased to get my aunt’s old laptop that O has converted into a Linux computer and filled it with games and other free computer programmes,
- also had “fika” with my SIL and second BIL – they actually call it fika since BIL No 2, C’s German girlfriend used to live in Stockholm!
- getting all our laundry done (we brought a shameful amount of laundry from Belgium as we don’t have a washing machine…),
- missed the Good Friday procession but O told me that it was cut very short by the rain,
- listening to my FIL* using a small hammer to “unshell” the almonds that we will bring back to Brussels, and for my family as a present (you do know that almond have a hard shell just like nuts, don’t you?),
- we were treated to my favourite tapas in two different bars by my FIL before [the late] lunch..
The sun finally came out today and I finally feel better! The loudspeakers all over the village are playing [religious Easter?] music, and people are out on the streets again talking and shouting – life in Spain is never quiet!
*) I hope that you have figured out my abbreviations by now – the different “in-laws”.
