For a change, Tim decided to visit us in the much warmer summer weather.
"Mum, can I come over?" "Of course, just send me the dates and how many." That turned out to be the following week, along with 3 friends that hadn't been before. Ooops. Half way through some major renovations wasn't the best call.
We quickly dashed around, tidying up rooms that had been used for storage, while dust and brickwork had been flying around. It didn't take toolong, as, whilst doing the work, I had had a major clearout. I think I had sent 4 boxes of bric-a-brac to the charity shop, along with 3 bin-bags of clothes.
Anyhow, Tim turned up on Sunday, with friends in tow. Including 1 vegitarian. Poor thing. I hope he liked my veggie lasangne, as he had that as a base for most things he ate during the week.
On the Thursday night, we went to the Barraca Restaurant (under new management) for a pre-ordered paella. It was excellent. She even did a veggie one for the 'special' guest, which went down very well.
We had a lovely selection of starters, as well as a couple of jugs of sangria to help wash it all down. Needless to say, coffees, brandy and carajillos were also the order of the day. To our delight, we were then offered a delicious shot, courtesy of the owner, just to finish off the meal with a lovely flourish. (Even the bill was a pleasure to pay.)
