So…. where were we? Sunday lunch was late after our trip to the rastros in our old home of Polop and La Nucia, great places to loose a Sunday morning looking through all the rubbish you really don’t want. Although saying that, we’ve had some great deals in the past, including a lot of my shoes and some Just Sheepskin boots which cost me 2€, and were for sale new on the internet for 180€!
So I bought quite a bit of leather from my usual Moroccan guys who do me a good price, in fact I got so much that our top box on the scooter was full to the brim! We had to take the scooter as the car needs to be checked as a warning keeps coming up to check the injection. .. could be expensive!
Anyhow, Bruce survived despite being woken up at 9 am, and so on return he was rewarded with a special lunch of coronation chicken in lettuce! It was scrumptious!
Today, although a bank holiday in the UK, is a normal day here in Spain. I woke at about 5am, and despite trying, couldn’t get back to sleep, so got up and was in my workroom by 6 am! I know, I am crazy, but may as well make the most of the time especially if an enquiry for 65 baglets from the UK comes off.
So I get a phone call from Deb asking if I need kidnapping from the workshop as she’s taking her daughter and friend out for lunch. Do I need to be asked tie? Not really, so once I’d checked Bruce had nothing planned, I arranged to be picked up!
Lovely lunch at the Casino bar in Pego, where the menu is only 8€ for 3 courses – awesome value!
So, a great couple of hours spent with my stalked friend Deb, and her daughter Can and her friend Suzie. I rewarded their kidnapping of me with the muffins that I’d baked for the boys. …which had ended up in the freezer to stop me from eating them all!
What else… no news on the car which is now in the local garage being ‘done’, hopefully cheaply! ! It does mean I am house bound, well, sort of, until we get it back. So I’m busy in the workroom, making more stock for the next two fairs I have booked, and fingers crossed the big UK deal, of which I am waiting for the first installment of the final payment before I feel that I can celebrate!
